LungPass Pro is an FDA listed prescription device intended to monitor and record lung sounds and automatically detect crackles and wheeze. It consists of a Bluetooth-enabled stethoscope and an AI-powered app.
LungPass Pro is a prescription device intended to monitor and record lung sounds and automatically detect crackles and wheeze. When interpreted by healthcare providers, LungPass Pro aids in diagnosis and patient management. LungPass Pro is intended to be used in healthcare settings on adults, adolescents, and/or children over three years old.
It was designed for use by any healthcare provider who performs lung auscultation, including doctors, nurses, EMTs/first-responders, and students.
The app provides an automatic computer analysis of lung sound recordings using an AI algorithm. It differentiates between 5 types of sounds: normal breathing, wheeze, crackles, artefacts and heartbeat. .
The algorithm uses spectrograms – a visual representation of sounds, to do such analysis. Normal breathing, wheezes, crackles, and heartbeat analysis are provided when the spectrogram created by the user receives the highest match with a respective class of spectrograms derived from recordings labelled by respiratory specialists.
Artefacts analysis is provided when the spectrogram created by the user receives the highest match with a class of spectrograms derived from recordings of skin or hair rubbing against the stethoscope membrane, fingers moving on the stethoscope during the recording, stethoscope repositioning during the recording, electromagnetic interference, background noise, etc.
Yes, each recording lasts 5 seconds. During the development process it was determined this is sufficient time for the trained AI algorithm to analyze lung sound recordings. It also allows caregivers and providers to record sound from all lung areas without putting too much strain on a patient.
See " How does its AI analysis work?” page” and “Choosing the appropriate lung exam type” link to “Choosing the appropriate lung exam type” page” for further information on how LungPass Pro can assist you in recording and registering your patients’ lung sounds..
It can. A healthcare provider can share a saved lung exam they performed, incl. during at-home visits, with their colleagues or patients. The recipient will be able to access the audio recordings and AI annotations directly, without any login.
LungPass Pro is intended to be used in healthcare settings on adults, adolescents, and/or children over three years old. The patient should be capable of breathing in and out deeply through an open mouth during the lung sound recording process.
Yes, LungPass Pro is registered with the FDA as a Class II device.
We are now working with select distributors to bring LungPass Pro to primary care facilities across the US. Contact us “link to the contact page” if you'd like to order directly.
