A stethoscope is a medical device used to listen to heart sounds and breathing of the body. Stethoscope can be broadly classified into two types: Acoustic stethoscope and Electronic stethoscope. The commonly used stethoscope is an acoustic stethoscope. The disadvantage of acoustic stethoscope is that the sound level is very low and this stethoscope is not very suitable to use in noisy environment as well as to detect internal sounds of babies as they are very low. Electronic stethoscope electronically amplifies body sounds. As the sound signals are transmitted electronically, it can be wireless and can provide noise reduction. The primary aim of this paper is to develop and construct an electronic stethoscope using filters and based on wireless Bluetooth using Arduino Microcontroller that will make it easier to detect heart sound. In this paper we have discussed design and simulation of an electronic stethoscope which will not only provide us with a better signal but can also be wireless and interfaced with computers so that it can be further analysed and stored for further uses.
