Number of Positions 1 Required Documentation Once applicants have submitted their standardized CAP application, they will need to send the following documents in order to be considered for a fellowship position: A fetal stethoscope or fetoscope is an acoustic stethoscope shaped like a listening trumpet.
It is placed against the abdomen of a pregnant woman to listen to the heart sounds of the fetus. A Doppler stethoscope is an electronic device that measures the Doppler effect of ultrasound waves reflected from organs within the body. Motion is detected by the change in frequency, due to the Doppler effect, of the reflected waves. Hence the Doppler stethoscope is particularly suited to deal with moving objects such as a beating heart.
Moreover, Doppler auscultation was superior in the detection of impaired ventricular relaxation. Since the physics of Doppler auscultation and classic auscultation are different, it has been suggested that both methods could complement each other. A 3D-printed stethoscope is an open-source medical device meant for auscultation and manufactured via means of 3D printing. Tarek Loubani and a team of medical and technology specialists. The 3D-stethoscope was developed as part of the Glia project, and its design is open source from the outset.
The stethoscope gained widespread media coverage in Summer The need for a 3D-stethoscope was borne out of a lack of stethoscopes and other vital medical equipment because of the blockade of the Gaza Strip , where Loubani, a Palestinian-Canadian, worked as an emergency physician during the conflict in Gaza.
The s-era Littmann Cardiology 3 stethoscope became the basis for the 3D-printed stethoscope developed by Loubani. Stethoscopes usually have rubber earpieces, which aid comfort and create a seal with the ear, improving the acoustic function of the device.
Stethoscopes can be modified by replacing the standard earpieces with moulded versions, which improve comfort and transmission of sound. Moulded earpieces can be cast by an audiologist or made by the stethoscope user from a kit. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Health portal Medicine portal.
