RespiScope® Advanced Auscultation Option
This option for RespiPatient® enables realistic practice of critical auscultation skills. Lung, heart, and bowel sounds are provided.
The learner must place the dedicated WiFi stethoscope in the correct anatomical location on RespiPatient to trigger the sound file. The sound file is played directly from the stethoscope into the earpieces. Consequently, this design is superior to manikins with speakers embedded in the manikin. In short, this is because speakers can pick up noise from the mechanics of the manikin.
Additionally, the instructor can change the sounds and conditions of RespiPatient in a way not obvious to learners. This maintains the realism of the simulation.
