Intelligent stethoscopes help doctors listen - (China Daily via NewsPoints Desk)

  • 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.
