SimulScope Bedside Auscultation System

SimulScope Bedside Auscultation SystemRespiratory Medicine

The use of a stethoscope is fundamental to every physician and nurse. Learning to recognize heart sounds requires many hours of listening and practice. The physician/instructor must be present to explain the differences in location, pitch, timing and quality of each sound and murmur. There are hundreds of variations in sounds and murmurs from patient to patient. This is a time-consuming, but necessary part of any studentís medical education. The SimulScope System is an excellent means for assisting the physician in teaching heart, breath or bowel sounds, whether teaching bedside or classroom auscultation.

The SimulScope is a device for teaching auscultation at the bedside or in the classroom. It consists of small, portable, battery-operated infrared transmitter with low frequency stethoscope that is taken to the bedside. Each student and the instructor wear a Heartman Infrared Headphone. Everyone hears the same patient simultaneously. The SimulScope has a series of discrete filters that allow the accentuation or attenuation of eight different frequency bands. This permits the instructor to accentuate a grade 1 murmur, a faint AI blow or any other sound. He/she can attenuate or accentuate other sounds or murmurs for purposes of teaching. Sounds can be recorded at the bedside and played back through the SimulScope in the classroom, if desired.

The advantage to the physician is that he can teach multiple students from the same patient simultaneously. Because of the design of the system, the instructor knows exactly what each student is hearing. It is much easier on the patient as is only one stethoscope placed on him or her. These patients are often very ill and the least interruption for them is best.

Because the instructor can teach all students simultaneously, a great deal of time is saved.

Another model of the SimulScope allows the user to set up a 3-lead ECG for determining the onset of systole in patients with faster heart rates.

Other uses for the SimulScope include:

  • Telemedicine
  • Isolation ward use
  • Classroom use.
In summary, the SimulScope is an effective teaching tool because:
  • it allows multiple students to be taught simultaneously
  • it is much easier on the patient
  • the instructor knows exactly what the student is hearing
  • it saves a great deal of time
  • it is wireless or line operated
  • it is effective in teaching

The SimulScope is an electronic stethoscope system for auscultation in a telemedicine setting. It consists of small, portable, infrared transmitter with low frequency stethoscope that is taken to the bedside or telemedicine clinic. Each listener wears an infrared headphone that allows everyone to hear the same patient simultaneously. This is an exclusive feature with the SimulScope. The SimulScope has a series of eight discrete filters that allow the accentuation or attenuation of eight different frequency bands (also an exclusive feature). This allows the physician to accentuate a grade 1 murmur, a faint AI blow or any other sound. He/she can attenuate or accentuate other sounds or murmurs for purposes of teaching. Sounds can be recorded at the bedside and played back through the SimulScope in the classroom, if desired. Bedside Auscultation with ECG (Catalog no. 718-7006) Another model of the SimulScope is the SimulScope "R". This unit is the same as the SimulScope except that it provides a 3 lead ECG for timing the onset of systole. With each QRS wave that is detected, a red light flashes on the face of the SimulScope. This allows students/physicians to determine the onset of systole when it is not apparent such as with a heart rate in excess of 110 beats per minute. There is no other piece of equipment currently manufactured in the US that will obtain both sounds and ECG simultaneously.
