Heart Murmur Sensor Gains CE Mark
Austria-based eMurmur has earned the CE Mark for its heart murmur sensor, a mobile device that uses cloud technology in conjunction with a third-party electronic stethoscope.
The device makes use of advanced machine learning to identify pathologic and innocent heart murmurs, as well as the absence of a heart murmur.
The system uses machine learning, a mobile app and a web portal to help healthcare providers with cardiac auscultations. This usually requires providers to have good hearing and the ability to distinguish different pitches and timing.
