How to Use

Just like the normal stethoscope, there is a procedure that has to be followed in order to get accurate heartbeat results. The first step entails lying on your back in a quiet room. Gently press your iPhone microphone on your lower abdomen. It is recommendable to remove the casing or cover before monitoring to enable the app to capture the correct data.

Use the normal headphones to listen to the heartbeats. Note that headsets that have a microphone usually disable the mic inside your iPhone or iPad device so it is recommended to use headsets that do not have a microphone. You might have to increase the volume to hear the heartbeats   clearly.

If the beats are too low or quiet, try adjusting low frequencies of the mic to make the more audible. All you need to do is touch the sound graph that is displayed on the interface. Note that the heartbeats are usually very quiet so it is impossible to hear them using the iPad or iPhone speaker.
