An App to Record your Heart Sounds | Stemoscope - Digital Stethoscope Review

It’s the smallest handheld stethoscope I have come across. Once paired to your mobile device, it allows you to take a listen to the sounds of the body in real-time with unlimited recording.

The best feature about the Stemoscope is the ability to listen to the heart in real-time. This proves to be great for educational purposes, for example, if you are a medical student, a nurse or simply someone who is intrigued about the sounds of the body. The sound quality is very good and captures the heart well. Would I use this for my day to day job? Well, there’s a certain prestige carrying a stethoscope around your neck and certainly the quality of the sound transmitted in-ear is much better than that from a mobile device. However, as someone who likes to educate my viewers on the sounds of the body this is a great addition to my collection and I cannot wait to share more educational videos with you.

PROS

Lightweight 30g

Unlimited recording

Up to 5 hours usage

Very small

Bluetooth to mobile device

Cheap - around $100 AUD

Easy to use device and App

Works 2m apart

Able to use bell/ diaphragm and both

Able to amplify sound

Great hobbiest listening device.

Best used with headphones plugged into mobile device

CONS

Sound quality not as good as an in-ear stethoscope

Doesn’t replace the prestige of classic stethoscope

Requires a mobile device to use

CONCLUSION

This is a great tool if you’re interested in learning more about particular heart, lung or bowel sounds. It would be a useful aid for exam preparation and it looks futuristic. I’ll certainly be keeping mine to film more beautiful sounds of the body.

Treating Her ‘Angry Fat’ and Diastolic Heart Murmur | Lipoedema and Me

One in every ten women are affected, no amount of dieting can help and most don’t know it exists… In this episode we talk to a patient diagnosed with Lipoedema and take a listen to her fascinating heart murmur at both rest and during exercise.

LIPOEDEMA

Lipoedema is a condition that mainly affects women and is characterised by symmetrical swelling in the legs, thighs, buttocks and sometimes arms. It is due to the way fat is deposited under the skin in an uneven manner instead of in a regular pattern. It can be extremely painful and the areas that are affected have a tendency to bruise easily. Lipoedema can result in fluid retention in the affected areas leading to a condition known as lymphoedema. It is thought to have a genetic basis, however, the cause of the condition is not yet fully understood.

As we hear in this interview, lipoedema can have a number of effects on the body from having a limited ability to do physical exercise to other medical conditions. As you’ll hear, our patient was incidentally found to have a murmur caused by diastolic dysfunction which is where the heart has trouble relaxing between beats. This means that with each contraction, less blood is pumped from the left ventricle and so the heart has to work harder to make up for this shortfall. This, if not monitored regularly, can lead to conditions such as high blood pressure and even heart failure. We take a listen to the murmur over both the aortic and pulmonary valve during rest and exercise and it’s truly amazing.

Treatment of lipoedema is multi-dimensional and involves psychological support, healthy eating and exercise, skin care, compression therapy and management of pain amongst others. It is often managed through a multidisciplinary team of doctors and therapists.

If you or someone is affected with lipoedema please see your General Practitioner for further assessment and management. There are also a number of useful support groups available.

In this episode we take a listen to the female heart before, during and after exercise with no added commentary.

As you’ll notice, listening to the heart at rest, the beats are crisp and clear. During and after exercise, you may hear some lung sounds which can alter the clarity of the heart beat sound. Listen to how the heart relaxes to its resting state after exercise and the heart beat becomes clearer again - truly beautiful.

Be sure to stay tuned for my next set of videos where we will be listening to the male heart beat before, during and after exercise and a live female patient with a heart murmur. I am also excited to share with you that I’ll be reviewing another electronic stethoscope very soon.

If you have any questions or comments please drop me a line.

Take care and stay healthy 😘

In today’s episode of Dr Nora, I take a close look at the 3200 Littmann Bluetooth Electronic Stethoscope and see whether it’s worth the hefty price tag of $700AUD.

Boosting the ability to record up to 30 second clips of the heart with Bluetooth transfer, I was excited to add this scope to my collection. Watch on to see what’s included in the box, what it sounds like and how to transfer the tracks onto your computer.
