We're proud to announce that we've recently been featured as part of a landmark study published in the British Medical Journal, demonstrating how digital stethoscopes can be used in neo natal care to pick-up an infants heart rate faster than the typical standard of care ECG.
This represents a significant breakthrough and has the potential to save lives of infants around the world by allowing doctors to determine heart rates faster than ever, and then making the decision to resuscitate faster.
We're grateful to Dr's Kevat, Gaertner, Davis, and Farouk Kamlin for choosing to use our devices as part of this study and the result has astounded us.
Whilst our stethoscopes are primarily designed for consumer at home use, the fact that they can be used in a clinical setting like this in such an important scenario gives our team a great sense of pride, and shows that advancements in consumer medical technology can have big implications on the wider health system.
