It’s just like having a doctor make a house call.

Online Examination and Result-sharing

Lung, Heart, and Heart Rate Exams: Listen to and record sounds, and send audio data to your doctor for consultation. Place the digital stethoscope at the designated position on the body and, once the signal is clearly being captured, record the audio.
Ears: Capture images of the inside of the ear and eardrum, and send images and video to your doctor as supplemental data for use in online consultation. Simply connect the otoscope adaptor to the device and slowly insert it into the ear until the eardrum can be seen.
Throat: Use the device’s camera to examine the back of the throat (uvula and tonsils). An included tongue depressor will help provide a clear view inside the throat.
Skin: Use the device’s high-definition camera to capture photos and video of the skin surface, and send the recorded data to your healthcare provider.
Temperature: Use the no-touch infrared thermometer to measure your body temperature. Simply point the device at your forehead from a distance of no more than 2 inches.

In an effort to help combat the COVID-19 pandemic, TytoCare devices are being used at Samitivej and other BDMS group hospitals to help provide preliminary health exams and ensure the safety of all doctors and medical personnel in carrying out their duties. Samitivej Hospitals and BDMS Group have also donated TytoCare devices for use in public hospitals throughout Thailand.

The benefits to the country as a whole are as follows:

  1. Reduces the risk of infection of medical personnel resulting from contact with, and examine, patients with short-term infection risk.
  2. Reduces the number of personnel exposed to infected persons or those with risk criteria for infection, helping to solve issues of hospital personnel shortages.
  3. Reduces the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) because doctors and nurses are able to remotely examine infected patients.
  4. Allows patients to access medical services without having to travel to hospitals where they will be at greater risk of infection.
  5. Provides for the examination of patients in remote areas or those who are currently in quarantine or isolation.
