An intelligent stethoscope developed by Guangdong University of Technology is expected to play a role in preventing coronavirus cross-infections in people, reported China Daily.
The stethoscope works by collecting overlapping sounds of the heart and lungs on the chest surface by means of a highly sensitive electronic head.
It then filters out useless noise and separates the sounds from the organs and then transmits them to earphones or a background server through a wireless network, researchers explained.
According to the scientists, doctors can evaluate patients remotely through the intelligent stethoscope online or offline, even when they are wearing protective suits.
The university added that intelligent stethoscopes will be donated to front-line hospitals in the fight against the COVID-19 epidemic in the weeks to come.
