With a Pulsator, the patient's pulse is literally at your fingertips.
Pulsators™ allow you to feel the carotid pulse, apex beat, or right ventricular lift. They plug right into the speaker jack of your computer, and play heart sounds through Sonitors or regular headphones.

With our software, Pulsators will demonstrate the changes in pulse contour that one experiences with aortic stenosis, aortic regurgitation, or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

Even when the carotid pulse is otherwise normal, it can provide a valuable timing aid. For example, the diastolic murmur of mitral stenosis is easy to misclassify when the heart rate is too fast to tell systole from diastole simply by listening.

A pulsator takes up less room on your desktop than a stack of CDs, and can very easily travel with your laptop for teaching or self study.

Speaker Pads allow you to use your own stethoscope to listen to heart sounds.

Speaker Pads for Stethoscopes transmit sounds and murmurs directly to your stethoscope, and are compatible with any heart sounds software. They are the best sound solution available, and are ideal for sharing a computer with several listeners.

Shown here with a stethoscope, a group of Speaker Pads can be daisy-chained to teach a small group. For larger groups, up to 12 Speaker Pads can be used simultaneously without an additional amplifier.

Note: we strongly discourage the use of loudspeakers when listening to, or teaching heart sounds. Low-frequency sounds such as the third heart sound, or the mid-diastolic rumble of mitral stenosis, are all but inaudible with loudspeakers. If you don't have Speaker Pads, try to find a pair of good headphones and use them in a quiet room. Either way, you can listen to heart sounds and murmurs without disturbing others, such as in a library or shared office setting.
