Amplified Stethoscope to Help Hearing Impaired Clinicians

ViScope from Cardionics is a new digital electronic scope that is able to amplify sounds up to 30 times louder than a traditional stethoscope.  The ViScope allows users to wear hearing aids while listening with an optional headset and also provides users with a visual display of the phonocardiogram or phonopneumogram.  The visual display will appear on a small screen as the stethoscope is placed on a patient’s chest and the phonocardiogram can be downloaded using the ViScope-100 software.  The device will help hearing impaired clinicians hear and see the difference between murmurs and regular heartbeats.
