 IPhone Application to Make Stethoscope Redundant

A free iphone application that monitors heartbeat has attracted millions of doctors who are ready to put away what had been the symbol of their profession - the stethoscope.

Peter Bentley of the University College London has invented the iStethoscope application, which monitors heartbeat through sensors in the phone.


As many as 500 apps are being downloaded everyday since a free version was introduced last week. Everybody is very excited about the potential of the adoption of mobile phone technology into the medical workplace, and rightly so," the Telegraph quoted Bentley as saying.

"Smartphones are incredibly powerful devices packed full of sensors, cameras, high-quality microphones with amazing displays," he added.
