Electronic Stethoscope

Electronic Stethoscope

The HP Stethos looks and feels like a conventional stethoscope but uses microelectronic technology to amplify sounds up to 14 times louder than a conventional stethoscope, selectively amplify certain frequency ranges, and filter out ambient noise. The stethoscope can be switched between bell, diaphragm, and extended diaphragm modes, according to the Hewlett-Packard Medical Products Group, 3000 Minuteman Rd., Andover, MA 01810, 800-225-0230.
