- Groundbreaking Stethoscope Employs Patented Murmur Detection Algorithm -
Düsseldorf, Germany – November 6, 2014 – At MEDICA, Booth 16/E20-5, HD Medical Inc. is demonstrating its groundbreaking visual stethoscope ViScope MD™ featuring the world’s first murmur detection indicator. This revolutionary stethoscope offers a unique integrated visual display that lets medical professionals perform dynamic auscultation™ and “see” the heart beats they hear in real-time visual waveforms. ViScope® and ViScope MD are the first stethoscopes to enable documentation of heart data with the bundled software which can be used for patient reporting and analysis as well as information sharing or for use in teaching situations.
ViScope MD displays heart waveforms for quick and accurate identification of various heart conditions and offers a murmur indicator for rapid diagnosis. Careful auscultation of heart murmurs is an extremely valuable tool in the diagnosis of many cardiac conditions. The timing of a murmur is critical to accurate diagnosis. HD Medical has refined and improved their proprietary IP knowledgebase of heart sounds and algorithms to accurately identify murmurs and other body sounds. With knowledge of the cardiovascular conditions that cause murmurs, patients can receive better treatment and this will also reduce the cost of healthcare.
“HD Medical’s ViScope MD is uniquely capable of determining the presence of a murmur during early screening,” states Muthu Krishnan, Senior Vice President of Business Development for HD Medical. “This HD Medical Offers First Visual Stethoscope with Murmur Detection capability ensures patients can receive early intervention before irreversible pulmonary hypertension or heart failure intervenes.”
ViScope MD with murmur detection is certified for CE compliance and sold from the website and through HD Medical’s network of resellers.
