Fighting COVID-19 with Telemedicine Stethoscopesrnkproducts2020-05-13T12:19:58+00:00
RNK’s Response to COVID-19
RNK is helping fight COVID-19 with telemedicine stethoscopes. With COVID-19 being a respiratory illness, a telemedicine stethoscope has become a necessity. A video call (e.g. Skype or FaceTime) between clinician and patient just isn’t enough. A stethoscope is critical for listening to lung sounds. And a telemedicine stethoscope allows Clinicians to listen from anywhere.
As a leader in telemedicine stethoscopes, RNK has significantly ramped up production to meet the high demand.
The PCP-USB Telemedicine Stethoscope
Our most popular stethoscope yet, the PCP-USB stethoscope is used in top hospitals across the world as well as in the VA to extend health services to our veterans and is even used in the White House and on Air Force One. The PCP-USB stethoscope uses a chest piece that includes an embedded amplifier plus an A/D Converter, Encoder, Formatter and USB interface that is recognized as a plug-n-play audio device.
At the beginning of every year, healthcare analysts predict that this will be the year that telemedicine take off. Finally, it is safe to say 2020 was the turning point for telemedicine.
With loosened regulations (President Trump expanded medicare benefits during COVID-19) and the need for virtual evaluations for safety reasons, telemedicine has exploded. While we aren’t sure whether this will be a bubble or a new normal, we do believe that the Genie is out of the bottle. Telemedicine to the masses has finally arrived. It would be hard to go back.
Keeping Patients AND Clinicians Safe with Telemedicine Stethoscopes
Institutional Telemedicine – Use in hospitals, clinics and other institutions.
At home for Clinicians – Allow clinicians to keep working and evaluating patients from afar, thus helping with capacity.
At home for Patients – Help keep patients out of the hospital by closely monitoring their progress. Patients can use the telemedicine stethoscope on themselves with a clinician listening to their lungs from anywhere.
