How does the digital stethoscope work?
A digital stethoscope has been placed on the outer part of the cuff so that it will be in contact with the side of the chest when the BPM Core is placed on the left upper arm. The device will listen to heart sounds for 20 seconds and detect if there is a risk of valvular heart disease.
It is a medically-approved recording?
This recording is a big innovation and has received CE clearance for medical devices. BPM Core is currently under review to be FDA cleared.
What can I learn from this recording and how can I act on it?
The BPM Core tells users if there is a risk that they could have valvular heart disease, and encourage them to visit their cardiologist. The earliest the disease is diagnosed, the better the cardiologist can follow the evolution and eventually plan a surgery when needed.
