New Visual Stethoscope Demonstrated at HIMSS 2015
April 23, 2015 — HD Medical Inc. demonstrated the new ViScope visual stethoscope product family at at HIMSS 15. These visual stethoscopes provide dynamic auscultation — the ability to see what you hear. ViScope’s integrated visual display shows heart waveforms in real-time, allowing for patient screening, teaching and telemedicine.
ViScope records patient heart anomalies so medical professionals can share with colleagues, students, insurance companies and electronic medical records.
The ViScope visual display is complemented by high fidelity sound quality and amplification up to 30 times louder than a traditional scope for unmatched clarity. HD Medical has invested over a decade refining its proprietary noise reduction technology.
ViScope also records patient heart sounds for 10 seconds capturing the first heart sounds, often the most telling for healthcare professionals.
The scope’s heart sound recordings can be transferred to a PC configured with the ViScope bundled software to access a tunable filter that provides the ability to select specific parts of the heart sound to listen to, such as S1/S2, S3/S4, etc. ViScope’s value as a screening tool for early detection of cardiac defects has been validated through multiple clinical trials.
ViScope product family includes:
• ViScope entry level visual stethoscope for sales in the United States and Europe. It is FDA approved and CE certified
• ViScope MD visual stethoscope with murmur detection for sales and distributors outside the U.S.
• ViScope ECG 3-lead visual stethoscope which interprets the type of murmur for sales and distributors outside the United States.
ViScope has been awarded the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance and is CE compliant. ViScope is sold from the website and through HD Medical’s network of resellers in the United States.
