A Feasibility Study on Whether a Stethoscope Sensor Using a Sheet Type Biosensor Can Record Heart Murmur and Heart Sound

      Auscultation often depends on the subjective judgment of the doctor and information sharing is not easy. The newly developed seat type biosensor is characterized by its flexibility and low power consumption. Since it is a high sensitivity sensor capable of detecting slight vibration in the thickness direction, auscultation sensor was created for the purpose of developing a device which can more appropriately record heart murmur and heart sound. We examined whether this auscultation sensor is actually usable, as shown in the Fig. 1. As a result, it was shown that heart sounds and heart murmur can be appropriately recorded. By enabling objective evaluation of data, it can be useful not only for daily clinical but also for education. In the future, we aim to develop electronic stethoscope with diagnostic function.
