Cardiologist calls stethoscope a "relic" amid new technologies

Family Medicine SmartBrief | Oct 27, 2014

The stethoscope is a "relic" because physicians now have technology to visualize the heart instead of just listen to it, cardiologist Eric Topol, M.D., told attendees of the 2014 AAFP Assembly. Topol said new innovations include a glucose monitor that works with a smartphone and earbuds that track heart rate and blood pressure, but patients will continue to need the experience and treatment only physicians can offer.
