Abstract:
    DigiSteth is a portable digital Stethoscope to help patients with cardiac and respiratory issues, in rural areas, using intelligent decision support system and DigiSteth.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Although the emergence of the electronic stethoscope has paved the way for a new field of computer-aided auscultation, there are still some issues like the amplification of noise in it. Also, the one available is the market is costly. Our model will be more efficient and less costly.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   In Pakistan, top 2 causes are CVD and pneumonia. Pakistan is 3rd largest contributor to pediatric pneumonia. So, all the people in rural areas will be our target/benefactors
How will the solution works
    Sound will be converted into electrical signals, which will be filtered out via analogous circuits. It will be digitized and fed into MATLAB for further processing, which will be used for detection of diseases. It will be connected to an android application and cloud storage.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    DigiSteth has features like Remote Database, Bluetooth, Telemedicine, Conference listening, Cloud Storage/Processing Beat/Breath Count and many more at a price of USD250 while it's competitors such as Litmann offers 1 feature only in Steth at USD375 and Think Lab One offers 2 features only at USD500
