How do Eko stethoscopes work with the Eko App?
An Eko stethoscope connects to the Eko App via Bluetooth to unlock the device and provide access to the platform’s full feature set. Once the stethoscope is connected to the app, you can listen wirelessly, record sounds, see detailed detection results supported by Eko AI, and share recordings.
Are Eko stethoscopes compatible with Eko software?
Yes, Eko stethoscopes connect with the Eko App. Download the Eko App for free in the iOS App Store or Android Google Play Store.
What is Eko AI-supported analysis?
Eko Analysis Software, or Eko AI, is FDA-cleared software intended to provide support to the physician in the evaluation of patients’ heart sounds and ECGs. The software analyzes simultaneous ECG and heart sounds. The software detects the presence of atrial fibrillation and normal sinus rhythm from the ECG signal. In addition, it calculates certain cardiac time intervals such as heart rate and QRS duration and EMAT. The software does not identify other arrhythmias. It is not intended as a sole means of diagnosis. The interpretations of heart sounds and ECG offered by the software are only significant when used in conjunction with physician over-read and is for use on adults (> 18 years).
When the Eko App is connected and used with a compatible digital stethoscope, Eko AI is used to check for signs of heart disease. The Eko App summarizes any findings, including potential AFib or other abnormalities. These findings aren’t a diagnosis, but are intended to aid the clinician in reaching a diagnosis accurately, quickly, and confidently.
Is the Eko App available outside the U.S.?
The international Eko App is available for iOS and Android devices with limited functionality. The international app does not include Eko AI analysis, sharing of recordings or patients, auto record, live streaming, and the full cardiac exam.
