A Prospective Study Investigating the Use of the Eko CORE and Eko DUO Electronic Stethoscopes for Differentiation of Innocent vs. Pathologic Murmurs in Pediatric Patients.

The vast majority of these murmurs are benign asymptomatic "innocent" murmurs and not indicative of heart disease, according to the CDC. Even if the murmur is found to be innocent by the pediatrician and in some situations, clinical diagnostic testing is performed unnecessarily. Specific characteristics of the murmur may help distinguish innocent from other murmurs, such as improving auscultation techniques and diagnosis based on auscultation and electrocardiography is vital in accurate diagnosis and minimizing costs associated with child healthcare diagnosis of innocent and pathological heart murmurs. A digital stethoscope that can be used to produce a PCG and a single lead electrocardiograph is easily portable thanks to the FDA-cleared Eko DUO unit. The CORE and DUO are both capable of sound amplification and audio streaming to a smart phone, notebook, or tablet via Bluetooth® that enables the user to display and playback sounds with an iOS, Android, or Microsoft Windows compatible device. We want to create a clinically useful algorithm that distinguishes innocent from pathologic heart murmurs in this research.
