AF researchers test digital stethoscope for en route care

Dr. David Burch, a research biomedical engineer and the medical technology solutions team lead for En Route Care Medical Technology Solutions Research Group with the 711th Human Performance Wing at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, collects data on vibration profiles while flying aboard a C-130J Super Hercules with the support of the 146th Airlift Wing Air National Guard, Feb. 9, 2018. This data will help improve and tailor noise-immune stethoscope technologies to ensure they can function during patient transport. Prior to such devices, use of a traditional stethoscope did not function as it was intended due to the dynamic, high-noise environment of an aircraft. (Courtesy photo)
