The PCP-1 Telemedicine Stethoscope can be used without software as a standalone external microphone. It can be selected in desktop video conference platforms as the primary microphone when conducting an auscultation. Any PC, MAC or device with a microphone jack will recognize the stethoscope microphone. Sound quality is excellent but use without stethoscope software requires switching back and forth between the stethoscope and main video conference microphone. Additionally, frequency filtering and local monitoring features are not available without software. Also, the PCP-1 has an internal amplifier but relies on the audio circuitry of the PC for audio processing and handling so that, on some PCs with marginal audio circuitry, newer stethoscopes like the PCP-USB can sound better.
With the PCP-1 stethoscope and sSOIP Auscultation Anywhere Software, clinicians are able to perform auscultations on patients from a distance using a PC, laptop or device running full versions of Windows® OS. The Auscultation Anywhere software and a high quality, echo-cancelling USB headset, both of which can be purchased with on this website, allow clinicians to conveniently and easily conduct auscultations, and adjust any of five distinct audio filters to allow for the best quality sound regardless of clinical use or body site. The audio filters along with the recommended USB headset provide, clean and crystal clear sound to help clinicians make the most informed medical decisions from a distance. In addition, the nurse, tech or presenter can use the local monitoring feature to listen as they place the chest piece to hear what the physician is hearing. This aids the telepresenter process and helps in training the presenter. The PCP-1 connects to a PC via the 3.5 mm microphone port.
