Electronic Stethoscope


The Department of Pediatrics under the direction of Prof. Erik Shinwell has recently acquired an electronic stethoscope designed specifically for doctors suffering from hearing loss. The stethoscope's advantage lies in its ability to work with the hearing aid and to differentiate between the heart frequencies and the breathing frequencies of the lungs. Professor Shinwell said: "The stethoscope allows me to increase the volume and also connects to "Bluetooth", giving me the opportunity to save data during treatment and then to present it to my students."

The stethoscope is from the American company ThinkLabs; by chance we were told that the owner's wife grew up in Zafed.
