STETHOSCOPES

Androscope i-stethos enables the user to remotely auscultate cardiac and pulmonary sounds as well as connectivity to the Androscope teaching module so that multiple health care professionals can listen to biological sounds simultaneously. The Androscope i-stethos is even equipped with a cable port to capture sounds and transfer signals to a PC or a PDA for storage and retrieval, so it’s ideal for monitoring a patient’s progress or sharing data with other Androscope i-stethos users.
