Quick Record - What’s New

Quick record lets you hear and see real-time visualizations like phonocardiograms and electrocardiograms. You can connect your personal audio device and use this feature for wireless listening. If you have an Enterprise Software Plan, you can tap the “stream” button to initiate a Live Stream of your ECG and body sounds. Please note that Eko will not automatically check for murmurs or AFib during recordings made through “Quick Record.” If you’re running a Live Stream from “Quick Record” your receiver will be able to initiate an analysis if your institution has not opted out of recording or the automated murmur and AFib detection.


Quick Record Walkthrough 

Step 1: Connecting device

Make sure Bluetooth is enabled on your mobile device. Log in to the Eko App and power on your digital stethoscope. 





Select the stethoscope you want to set up from the screen.


If you’re using the same stethoscope from your last pairing, Eko will automatically reconnect with that stethoscope. The app will indicate when the stethoscope is paired successfully. iPhone_UI_69.png

Step 2: Starting a quick record

From here, you can tap “Audio” to enable Play from Headphones. This setting allows you to stream sounds to headphones or earbuds that are connected to your phone or tablet. Please adjust your phone’s audio settings to find a suitable volume.  iPhone_UI_71.png
You have the option to enable Volume Boost, which will further amplify the sounds and if you have a Eko device connected, you can also adjust your audio filter from here as well iPhone_UI_113.png

You can also tap “Live Stream” to initiate a Live Stream session if you have an Enterprise Software Plan. 

Make sure to click “Live Stream” and toggle the feature to “on” to unlock the Live Stream URL 

If your workflow involves sharing the Live Stream link, users will need to click the “Live Stream” icon and select “Email Live Stream link’ or “Share Live Stream link” from the pop-up. 


Note that when you launch the Eko Clinic application, it will default to your last used screen. If you are utilizing the Eko application primarily for Live Stream, you will remain on the “Record” tab where Live Stream lives unless someone clicks away.

Step 3: Taking a recording

When you’re ready to take a recording, tap “Record.” (Note that if your institution has shut off the "Record" feature, the option to record will be grayed out. Make sure the patient is still and quiet in order to capture a high quality recording. The recording will begin automatically once the device picks up a signal.



Hold your device steady for the next 15 seconds. (You can record up to 120 second sound clips by adjusting the settings.) 


Step 4: Assigning Exam

Once you have finished the recording, you can assign the recording to a patient by tapping “Assign” on the top right corner. If you’re assigning the recording to a patient you’ve already created, you can find them using the search bar or by scrolling through the patient list.



You can also create a new patient profile directly from the recording. If you do not assign the exam to a particular patient, it will be automatically saved in your Unassigned Files.


Step 5: Selecting a stance

Indicate the stance your patient was in during the recording by selecting: “Standing”, “Sitting”, or “Supine”.


Step 6: Playing back a recording

Tap the Play button if you want to listen back to the recording. 


Step 7: Sharing a report

Tap “Share” to generate and share a report with the full waveform, a secure link to access the audio clip, and any included annotations. Your recipient will be able to access the audio clip directly from the report without any login.


If this recording is assigned to a patient, any personally identifiable information (PII) and/or protected health information (PHI) from that patient will be pulled into the report. It is your responsibility to maintain HIPAA compliance and, if necessary, remove PII and PHI before report transmission.

Step 8 : Adding a note

Tap “Notes” if you want to write specific comments to be saved with the recording. 


Step 9: Deleting a recording

Tap “Delete” if you want to delete the recording.  iPhone_UI_85.png

Step 10: Ending a quick record

Tap “Done” to be taken back to the Quick Record Home screen. iPhone_UI_76.png

Additional considerations for Eko Enterprise users: 

  • If your institution has requested to shut off the recording or analysis features, you will find Live Stream under the record tab but the option to record will be unavailable.
  • If you are an Eko subscription member who utilized Eko Clinic prior to March 2022, note that you will no longer have the ability to “reset the Live Stream”. This feature has been removed from the application and transitioned to an admin level feature in the institutional dashboard.
