“Patients diagnosed with coronavirus often experience shortness of breath, leading to acute respiratory distress syndrome. Doctors use (traditional) stethoscope to listen to chest sounds such as wheezing and crackles that appear with the progress of the disease,” one of the developers Adarhsa K told PTI.

Giving information about the ‘smart stethoscope’, Adarhsa ​​said that two ear devices are connected to a tube. This tube removes the noise that can obstruct the detection of disease and sends the sounds of the body. He added, “The other advantage of this is that the stethoscope is capable of converting them into electronic signals by amplifying and filtering various noises.”

The data obtained from this can also be sent to other physicians for analysis and further treatment. The team, which is running a startup called ‘Ayu Devices’, has sent 1,000 such stethoscopes to various hospitals and healthcare centers across the country. This device has been developed with the help of clinical information from the doctors of Reliance Hospital and PD Hinduja Hospital.
