Follow this simple 3 step process to attach the Eko Core to your analog stethoscope. The process should take less than 1 minute to complete.
Step 1: Detach the Chest Piece
Remove chest piece of the analog stethoscope manually. Grip the chest piece with one hand and the tubing in the other, pull them apart. This may require some force. If you cannot remove the head from the stethoscope, put the tubing in hot water for a few seconds. See Figures 1 and 2 below.
Step 2: Install Eko Core hardware
Insert the small end of the Eko Core hardware into the tubing of the stethoscope. The jack on the hardware fits into the hollow opening of the tube. NOTE: ensure the small end of the Eko Core fits onto the tubing for the earpieces. See figure 3. below.
Test to ensure successful installation. The inner part of the tubing should be sealed so that the sounds can be transferred.
Step 3: Reattach Tubing and Chestpiece
Attach the piece of additional tubing onto the end of the Eko Core hardware as shown below. Then attach the chest piece into the connector tubing as it was on the analog stethoscope. Ensure that the large end of the Eko Core is towards the head of the stethoscope.
