CORE 500™ placement guidelines

The CORE 500™ can be used to auscultate at all anatomical positions. Each position will produce a unique body sound and ECG tracing. Because of this, the best placement can vary.

The dots in the illustration show generally accepted CORE 500™ placement positions for cardiac and pulmonary auscultation. The CORE 500™ is sensitive to vibration and hand movement. Apply steady and constant pressure against the body to ensure good contact.
