The ri-sonic® 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 ri-sonic® 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 ri-sonic® PCP-1 stethoscope, clinicians are able to perform auscultations on patients from a distance using a PC, laptop or device. The PCP-1 connects to a PC via the 3.5 mm microphone port.
