The three filter options are:

  1. Wide: 45Hz-750Hz (Heart and Lung sounds)
  2. Cardiac: 35Hz-110Hz (Heart and Bowel sounds)
  3. Pulmonary: 275Hz-750Hz (Lung sounds)

Set up wireless screening

Wireless screening allows for real-time streaming of stethoscope sounds to Bluetooth-enabled audio devices. This set up helps clinicians adapt to different environments and keep safe from infectious disease.

The following workflow is designed for the Eko CORE Digital Stethoscope (2nd Generation) and Eko CORE Attachment (2nd Generation).

User Manual and Indications for use can be found here

Please note: Make sure your preferred headphones are plugged into or paired with your phone. We recommend using wired headphones for best sound quality but have beta tested with Airpods and got good sound quality with the following devices:

iOS: 5s, 6, 6s, 8, X, XR, XS, XS Max, 11.

Note: If you choose to use Airpods, or other wireless headphones, we recommend testing the sound quality and having wired headphones as a backup. Please see more information on compatible phone and bluetooth headphone models for Wireless Auscultation Here.

Step 1: Launch the Eko App and turn on Play from Headphones under the Settings panel of the App.

Step 2: Plug your preferred headphones into your phone. If you are using bluetooth headphones, connect them to your mobile device. We recommend limiting to only 2 bluetooth devices connected simultaneously to ensure strongest wireless connectivity. 

Step 3 (Optional): If you have a fully assembled stethoscope, start by removing your stethoscope ear tubing by either unscrewing the barb/tubing from the bottom of the CORE or pulling the ear tubing off of the barb.

Step 4: Turn on the Eko CORE and pair to the Eko App. Once the device is paired to the App, you can put your mobile device in your pocket or hold in your hand during auscultation. 

Step 5 (Optional): Put a glove / cover / stethoscope sleeve of your choice on the Eko CORE so that the entire device is covered. This can be changed between patients and the device can also be cleaned with 70% isopropyl alcohol wipes (do not submerge device in liquid). 

Examples of covers: (you can also use surgical gloves)

Step 6: Auscultate with the CORE. You should be hearing sounds through your headphones.

Analyze your recordings with Eko AI Analysis

If your account has access to Eko AI Analysis, you can detect the presence of heart murmurs whenever you take a recording. Your AI analysis results will show up within 5 seconds of completing your recording. 

  1. Launch the Eko App and connect your CORE 
  2. Take a recording.
  3. After about 5 seconds or so, the AI results will show up at the bottom of your screen. 

Note: For recordings longer than 15 seconds(up to 30 seconds), Eko AI will only analyze the first 15 seconds of data. Ensuring that signal quality is optimal is needed before a recording is initiated in order to return the best analysis results. Follow the steps outlined in Capturing Good Quality Data to ensure optimal data quality.
