ChestPal Pro, a digital stethoscope for detecting, classifying, recording, and sharing crackles and wheezes, launches to healthcare practitioners in the U.S. today. The device is designed to convert lung sounds to visual spectrograms.

The advanced generation device is designed to help clinicians arrive at a diagnosis accurately, quickly, and confidently, aiding in the timely treatment of life-threatening respiratory conditions, including pneumonia, asthma, and COPD. The tool enables lung exam sharing, making case escalation and referrals easy and convenient, especially in situations when a pulmonologist or other specialist is necessary and not located close to the patient.

“ChestPal Pro helps pick up lung sounds that are too subtle to hear when using a stethoscope alone,” said Dr. Emily Tuchman, MD, General Internal Medicine. “I listened to a patient’s lungs with my stethoscope and didn’t auscultate wheezing, but with ChestPalTM Pro, I picked up wheezing and could prescribe the steroids and inhaler my patient needed to improve.”

“We created ChestPal Pro to make lung sound classification more objective and reliable for frontline healthcare professionals as part of their clinical decision-making process,” said Helena Binetskaya, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer, ChestPal Ltd.
