Two breakthroughs all physicians should know about:
Breakthrough no. 1
Breakthrough no. 2
Listen and record both heart and lung sounds.
Create, save and compare visual images of heart and lung, then print, fax or e-mail them to anyone.
e-steth is a remarkable new electronic stethoscope that tunes in selectively to cardiac and pulmonary sounds. The doctor selects the organ for examination, and can listen to this alone without interference from the neighboring organs.
e-steth also detects sounds that are barely audible or inaudible using conventional instruments, such as aortic regurgitation and pericardial friction rub.
Lung sounds are distinctively audible, and clear identification of pleural noise allows early diagnosis of pleurisy. Where traditional acoustic methods may detect no noise associated with asthmatic conditions, doctors using e-steth can clearly distinguish wheezing, evaluate bronchial spasticity and even assess which lung fields are involved with disease.
Amazingly, e-steth can also produce visuals of heart and lung signals on a computer screen. These signals can be saved to a disc or hard drive, then, using special e-steth transmission software called CardioMail, the files of these visual images and sounds can be viewed, printed, faxed or e-mailed, permitting an objective aide in diagnosis by specialists in another location. The physician can also compare new and old recordings at the same time, allowing for the detection of any significant changes. The saved files of heart and lung images and sounds also protect the physician, clinic or hospital in terms of insurance and medical liability.
How e-steth works
e-steth operates with extreme ease. To examine a specific organ, the clinician or physician selects one of three modes on the e-steth Mode Switch normal, heart sounds only or lung sounds only to initiate the device's sequential analyzer. Once the mode is selected, a signal from a sensor is filtered and amplified by an electronic board, which drives the special headphones of the stethoscope, called the Lyre. If lung sounds or heart sounds are selected, all other sounds are filtered out.
Ergonomically shaped, e-steth is easy to handle and maintain. The sterilizable or disposable diaphragm membranes provide for safe examination of patients in immuno-depressed conditions, or with over-sensitive skin, such as burn patients. The membranes can be quickly removed or replaced and the sterilization system is simple to use, ensuring hygiene, as well as providing substantial cost savings compared to the maintenance of traditional stethoscopes.
The amazing features & benefits of e-steth
e-steth redefines the stethoscope: a superior electronic innovation that isolates, amplifies and records both heart and lung frequencies
e-steth allows physicians to visually record and save heart and lung information, compare this information to previous and future readings, and send this information via e-mail to other physicians -- the only product in existence that allows these remarkable advantages
e-steth's special, patented Lyre improves sound conduction to the physician's ears
Multiple recordings per patient are possible and all can be stored on a disc or PC hard drive
User-defined recordings can last from 10 seconds to one full minute
e-steth allows Microsoft® access: all data is stored in a Microsoft-supported database, allowing physicians with CardioMail to receive and visualize any e-steth-generated recording
All recordings can be printed in color and then FAXED or e-mailed
All software used by e-steth is Windows 95, 98 and 2000 compatible
Highly affordable: a great diagnostic value
e-steth detects these pathologies
Pathologies of the heart and lung produce separate noises that e-steth can detect. e-steth can diagnose such beginning pathologies of the heart and lung as these:
1. Pulmonary Asthma Bronchitis Pulmonary fibrosis Pneumothorax Pulmonary lobe consolidation Pneumonia Pleural rub, which is difficult to hear with a traditional stethoscope
2. Heart (morphology) Two pathologies for each heart valve: Stenosis and insufficency (regurgitation) Pulmonary, tricuspid, aortic and mitral valve auditory and visual phonographic readings Mid-systolic click murmur, mitral valve prolapse Interventricular Septal Defects (ISD), including atria (ASD) and ventricals (VSD) Left ventricular systolic dysfunction as heard as S3 gallup
3. Heart (conduction) e-steth can aide in the diagnosis of cardiac rhythm disturbances, i.e. premature atrial or ventricular contractions, atrial fibrulation, bradycardia, tachycardia and rhythm pauses.
4. e-steth can hear and e-steth software can distinguish between even difficult noises, such as: Pleural rub Pericardial rub Valvular function
