– New ViScope Telemedicine Software will be Showcased – 

Chicago, IL – April 13, 2015 – At HiMSS 15, HD Medical, Inc. demonstrates the new ViScope® visual stethoscope product family. These unique visual stethoscopes provide “dynamic auscultation™”, the ability to see what you hear. ViScope’s integrated visual display shows heart waveforms in real-time making it a perfect device for patient screening, teaching and telemedicine. HD Medical will showcase the new ViScope Telemedicine Software at the show this week. 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 U.S. 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 U.S.

“HD Medical’s visual stethoscopes are uniquely capable of addressing today’s evidence based medical environment,” states Arvind Thiagarajan, Chairman and Chief Inventor for HD Medical. “ViScope is the industry’s first stethoscope to enable documentation of heart data which can be used for patient reporting and analysis as well as information sharing, teaching situations and telemedicine applications.”

ViScope has been awarded the US 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 USA.

– Groundbreaking Stethoscope Employs Patented Murmur Detection Algorithm –

Dubai, UAE – January 19, 2015 – At Arab Health, Stand Z4E17, 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 capability ensures patients can receive early intervention for heart problems.”  ViScope MD with murmur detection is certified for CE compliance and sold from the website and through HD Medical’s network of resellers.
