The sounds caused by the heart's activity are a treasure trove of information on the wellness of the heart. Auscultation is the oldest known method employed to decode cardiac sounds. With auscultation, an expert can identify cardiac problems such as murmurs, regurgitation, septal defects, stenosis, valvular defects as well as other pathologies. A normal stethoscope with its limitations lacks the basic provision to visualise and record auscultation data for reference or follow-up care, which results in increasing number of healthy patients being recommended for expensive procedures to ascertain the condition of the heart. A cost effective and highly capable cardiac device like ViScope® would meet these important needs.
