New York hospital deploys Bluetooth stethoscope for telehealth exams 

For remote assessments, a nurse at the medical facility who is with the patient video calls the physician so they can see the patient. The nurse then can put the Bluetooth stethoscope on the patient so the doctor can monitor their heart beat. The device can also tape the patients heartbeat so the physician can evaluate it later.
