What You Should Know:
- Eko Health today announced the launch of its next-generation AI-enhanced digital stethoscope, CORE 500™.
- Engineered to enhance diagnostic accuracy and early disease detection, the CORE 500™ combines artificial intelligence (AI) software, high-fidelity audio experience, full-color display, and 3-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) to deliver an essential patient assessment tool for healthcare professionals (HCPs).
CORE 500 Features
The CORE 500™ is the first stethoscope to provide HCPs with accurate, instantaneous patient auscultation data on a full-color display, including heart rate and ECG tracing. The stethoscope flags abnormalities, including AFib, bradycardia, and tachycardia, in seconds. The CORE 500™ is equipped with up to 40x sound amplification, active noise cancellation, three audio filter modes, and features Eko’s newest audio innovation, TrueSound™. With in-ear speaker technology, TrueSound™ offers optimal sound filtering and reduced background noise to provide the most precise sound during every patient exam.
With a conventional stethoscope’s familiar design and intuitive workflow, CORE 500™ is designed for use across clinical specialties, including structural heart, primary care, urgent care, emergency medicine, home care, and virtual care. Built for dependability, the CORE 500™ is made from lightweight shatter-, splash-, and scratch-resistant material. Its fast-charging lithium-ion battery is optimized for multiple shifts, lasting up to 60 hours of regular clinical use on a single charge.
SENSORA™ Cardiac Disease Detection Platform Integration
CORE 500™ will be compatible with Eko Health’s SENSORA™ Cardiac Disease Detection Platform. SENSORA™ is the first advanced applied machine learning software that more than doubles the detection sensitivity of cardiac murmurs indicative of structural heart disease, giving health systems the power to optimize downstream care and improve outcomes. The CORE 500™ also seamlessly integrates with Eko Live Stream for synchronous listening that allows virtual teams to provide patient care with enhanced capability to record, analyze, and share auscultation data in real-time from anywhere.
The CORE 500™, which recently received FDA 510(k) clearance, is available exclusively at ekohealth.com. The CORE 500™ Digital Stethoscope is for healthcare professional use only. Its compatibility with arrhythmia detection features is currently limited to users within the United States.
