AF researchers test digital stethoscope for en route care

The digital noise-immune stethoscope, currently being evaluated by researchers with the 711th Human Performance Wing at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, connects into existing headsets used by aeromedical evacuation crews and critical care air transport teams. Traditional stethoscopes are difficult to use during en route care due to an aircraft’s noise environment. This noise-immune stethoscope aims to address that issue.
