Thoms, Lars-Jochen; Colicchia, Giuseppe; Girwidz, Raimund

When a stethoscope is placed on the chest over the heart, sounds coming from the heart can be directly heard. These sound vibrations can be captured through a microphone and the electrical signals from the transducer can be processed and plotted in a phonocardiogram. Students can easily use a microphone and smartphone to capture and analyse characteristic heart sounds.
