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 DUO Digital Stethoscope + ECG purchased after September 24, 2020

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:

Android: Galaxy S10, Galaxy S8, Pixel 4

  1. Launch the Eko App and turn on Play from Headphones under the Settings panel of the App. 
  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. 
  3. Remove the DUO stethoscope Earpiece by unscrewing it from the base of the DUO. 
  4. Turn on the Eko DUO 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. 
  5. (Optional): Put a glove / cover / stethoscope sleeve of your choice on the Eko DUO 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). 
  6. Auscultate with the DUO. You should be hearing sounds through your headphones. Note: ECG will not work when the DUO is covered with a protective sleeve.

  2. Once the recording is complete, you have the option to playback the recording (selecting the “Play” button to the left), saving the recording to a Patient ( “Assign” button to the right), or creating a new recording (the “New” button in the center).
  3. When the “Assign” button is selected, you will be cued to enter your PIN to access your saved Patients (if a PIN has been set up). Then you can select from one of the Patients in your list or create a new Patient to save the recording to.

Analyze your recordings with Eko AI Analysis

If your account has access to Eko AI Analysis, you can detect the presence of heart murmurs and atrial fibrillation 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 DUO 
  2. Take a 15 second recording.
  3. After about 5 seconds or so, the AI results will show up at the bottom of your screen. 
  4. 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.
