What is a Bluetooth Stethoscope?
A Bluetooth stethoscope is an electronic stethoscope that connects to your smartphone or mobile device via Bluetooth technology. This growing digital stethoscope technology allows healthcare professionals to hear heart, lung, and bowel sounds more clearly and record interesting auscultations to share with other medical or nursing professionals.
To put it simply a Bluetooth stethoscope (or digital stethoscope) tops our list for must have gadgets for nurses.
Why Should You Upgrade to a Bluetooth Stethoscope
There are a few feature differences between a traditional stethoscope and a high-quality Bluetooth stethoscope:
Mobile and desktop software for managing recordings and visualizing waveforms
The ability to use in acoustic mode, if necessary
Long-lasting battery life
In addition to all of the technical benefits and features, there are several practical ones as well. My favorite benefit of owning a Bluetooth stethoscope is the ability to preserve sounds to listen to later and share with colleagues.
Eko Stethoscope Review
The Eko Digital Stethoscope is the most innovative and practical Bluetooth stethoscope on the market. The sleek and slim design, 40x amplification, the free innovative Eko app, and AI analysis of heart sounds with murmur screenings put the Eko Core Digital Stethoscope in a class of its own. I also appreciate that many options are available in the Eko family to upgrade to a Bluetooth stethoscope. From the futuristic single-lead ECG + Digital Stethoscope, Eko DUO, to adding the Eko CORE Attachment to your current stethoscope, you have a choice and a price range that will work for almost anyone.
