COVID-19 Support: Digital Stethoscopes Protect Staff

Posted: 4/14/2020
Through a grant from the Foundation, Deaconess Critical Care and Emergency purchased digital EKO stethescopes. These innovative stethescopes allow one clinician to use a digital device to listen to a patient's heart and breathing while other physicians and nurses can receive the information to their phones while outside the room. This reduces the use of PPE (personal protective equipment) and protects patients and providers from extra traffic in and out of rooms.
