Project description

A digital stethoscope is intended to detect heart beat and other sounds of the chest.
is able to convert an acoustic sound to electronic signals, which can be further amplified for optimal listening. These electronic signals can be further processed and digitalized to transmit to a personal computer or a laptope. The diagnostic power provided by digital stethoscope auscultation to a physician can assist in altering management in patient care. 
The intended users are physicians and nurses, that can both detect and record the heart beat and other sounds in the chest.
The user relies to an internal power source (battery) and it has no known counterindication for use on intact skin of any patient.
