Limited time during curriculum → listening cannot be learned through note-taking or memorization
Infrequent exposure to rare physical findings during clinical time
Lack of easily accessible student teaching material beyond just text
Expensive patient simulators with limited student access

Hear it. Know it. See it. eMurmur is a privately-held medical device and artificial intelligence company specializing in Machine Learning approaches for the analysis and classification of complex human data for innovative medical applications. The company also provides a suite of apps for efficient classroom teaching, self-paced learning to leading medical schools, and earning continuing education credits for US nurses and nurse practitioners. Heart disease is the leading cause of death globally for both men & women causing 31% of all deaths (17.7M) annually. Heart auscultation (listening with a stethoscope for irregularities) is the most common screening test and can be an effective way of diagnosing many heart conditions. However, accurate auscultation requires expert-level training and experience. For example only 20-25% of referrals by primary care providers to echocardiography turn out to be pathological heart-murmurs. Artificial intelligence and e-learning through mobile apps are the way of the future for heart auscultation.
The company is headquartered in Ottawa, Canada (CSD Labs International), has an office in Graz, Austria (CSD Labs GmbH) and does business under the name eMurmur.
