Electronic Stethoscope for Detecting Cardiovascular and Cerebrovascular Diseases

Protron technologies has come up with a new electronic stethoscope cum vascular pathologic detector that facilitates fast and easy detection of atherosclerotic changes in the blood vessels.

Detection using stethoscope is a non-invasive procedure, which is extremely useful for the early detection of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. The American Heart Association reveals that these two diseases are major causes of death and disability among the people of America.

Stethotron

The Stethotron is set to change the way, in which aneurysms and other vascular problems are detected. It has been approved by the FDA for detection of vascular turbulence. Conventional detection procedures such as angiography, Doppler and MRI are cumbersome and invasive and involve high costs. Early detection of vascular abnormalities is possible using the Stethotron, thereby saving many lives. Since it is a non-invasive method, huge costs for surgical procedures are absent.

Dr. Leon Dondysh, who helped in the research that created the Stethotron, considers the Stethotron as an important milestone in patient care. He reiterated the usefulness of the Stethotron in giving timely warnings of the changes in the blood stream. He also stressed on the simple, non-invasive and low cost procedure for abnormality detection using the Stethotron. The Stethotron scores over the conventional stethoscopes by being able to operate in two modes; the doctors can switch between the two modes as per the situation. Mode1 provides amplification along with filtering; sounds below 300 Hz and above 1000 Hz are filtered. This mode is useful in detecting bruits. Another mode only amplifies the sounds, this mode is useful for heart, arteries and lung and other standard examination.
