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.
Up to 5 hours usage
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
Sound quality not as good as an in-ear stethoscope
Doesn’t replace the prestige of classic stethoscope
Requires a mobile device to use
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.
Which Stethoscope to Buy and Why | A Doctor’s Perspective
They may be a cool fashion statement but stethoscopes have many uses aside from being a physicians right of passage. In today’s episode of Dr Nora, I share with you which stethoscope I used during medical school, GP training and which I use today. I’ll also be going through the pros and cons of the different models as well as sharing with you a few stories from my medical school days.
Doctor Storytime | Diabetes Workshop and How I Saved a Life
I just wanted to share you with a glimpse of my week, and how honoured I am to be a doctor helping the community!
Firstly, I had the pleasure of being invited to speak at the @terrywhitechemmartpacpines diabetes workshop.
Not only did the attendees have access to a very knowledgeable dietician, @be.wellfed, we also went through the different types of diabetes, symptoms, how best to manage it and they had the chance to speak to the brilliant pharmacy team.
And to top that off, at the end of the day I was shifting through my emails, and I received a message to call one of my patients… which turned out to be the most heartwarming conversation I’ve had this week.
I love my job, and for anyone out there who’s going through any hardship, just keep at it. It took me 5 years of hard study just get through Medical School, but I can tell you that the struggle is worth fighting through.
GRADUATED!! For the third time - yes, that’s right, after transferring from the NHS over to the lovely Gold Coast, the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners have honoured me as one of their new fellows.
Join me as we head to Brisbane’s Convention Centre together and graduate!
For all you budding GPs out there, I have to say that it is a great career to pursue, getting to help people is the best part of my job. It’s hard work - 5 years of med school, 5 years of post-graduate studies and experience as a NHS doctor, 6 months of experience working as an Australian GP and of course competing the essential CEMP training course. But, it’s worth it.
The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners is the professional body for general practitioners in Australia.
The RACGP vision is for a ‘Healthy Profession, Healthy Australia’. The organisational mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of all people in Australia by supporting GPs, general practice registrars and medical students through its principle activities of education, training and research, and by assessing doctors’ skills and knowledge, offering ongoing professional development activities, developing resources and guidelines, advocating for GPs on issues that affect their practice, and developing standards that general practices use to ensure high quality healthcare.
