DigiScope prototypes deployed in two Hospitals

on .

The first version of the DigiScope prototype has been successfully deployed in two Hospitals, where it is being used in current clinical practice in a Primary Care environment. These are the Real Hospital Português in Recife, Brazil, and the Centro Hospitalar do Alto Ave in Guimarães, Portugal. The current version can collect, transmit and record heart sounds without interfering with clinical routine, allowing the manual annotation of the collected data. Prototype usability studies have begun, and a database of auscultations collected from real patients in real Hospital environments is being populated with new auscultations every day.
