An experimental electronic stethoscope for use aboard aeromedical evacuation flights and on flight lines was developed. Preliminary evaluation has indicated that such an instrument is both feasible and useful aboard aeromedical-evacuation aircraft and in patient staging areas on the flight line. Utilization of a noise-shielded pickup and earphones mounted in a noise-protection earmuff, plus the use of appropriate filter circuits, substantially excludes environmental noise while enhancing the audibility of desired sounds.
