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.
Let me know what you think about the sound quality. Is sound A or B better?
In this episode we take a listen to the male 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 video where we will be listening to 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.
Australia is on track to be the first country in the world to eliminate cervical cancer by 2035 as long as women get on top of their cervical health.
This week is all about cervical cancer awareness. The new cervical screening programme is open to those aged from 25-74 every 5 years and helps to detect the presence of HPV (Human Papilloma Virus), it is much more accurate than its predecessor the Pap test.
HPV takes over 10 years to develop into cervical cancer and cervical cancer is a rare outcome of HPV infection. For this reason you only need to have a test every 5 years rather than 2.
The test itself, taken in the same way as the Pap test, takes five minutes and could save your life.
If you’re overdue your smear test, please book in today or if you have any abnormal bleeding at any age, such as bleeding between periods, after intercourse or after the menopause please seek medical advice.
This World Diabetes Day I’m encouraging you to come in and check your risk of developing this serious medical condition.
Type 2 diabetes is a rapidly growing national problem. 100,000 Australians developed diabetes in the past year and type 2 diabetes accounts for around 85% of all diabetes. There are over 1 million Australians who have type 2 diabetes.
Early identification and management of people with type 2 diabetes is very important. Thirst, lethargy, change in weight and passing urine frequently are some of the common symptoms of diabetes. Checking your risk for diabetes is simple and quick and can be done with your GP.
If you have any questions or concerns about diabetes or would like to have your risk checked pop by and see me in clinic today.
