US-based Nigerian Doctor, Arigbamu Invents Infected Lungs Detector

A US-based medical Doctor, Dr. Samson Arigbamu has invented a stethoscope equipped with components capable of immediately detecting adventitious lung such as coronavirus infected lungs that would immediately announce its findings.

Arigbamu said that the stethoscope invention is in production at prototype and optimisation stage, which the final product would commence by December.

He noted that the process could be sped up with resources from individuals, organisations, even the Nigerian government.

Dr. Arigbamu has been living in the USA for about 22 years and currently the Director of Nursing at Future Care Lochearn, a 200-bed capacity health rehabilitation centre in Baltimore Maryland.

He has been on the employment of the company for 10 years, prior to that, he was a director of nursing at Manor Care Woodbridge in Baltimore Maryland for over 3 years. He currently owns and operates a private clinic called Upsurge Health Associate in Freeland, Maryland.

Dr Arigbamu maintained that the eventual production of the stethoscope would be a great achievement of pride to the Nigeria government for a simple fact that a citizen of the country invented such critical medical equipment worthy of a USA patent, hence, soliciting support from Nigeria government.

Arigbamu further expatiated that having worked in the healthcare field for over 20 years, he had seen healthcare providers including nurses, mid-level providers and physicians find it hard with identifying lung and heart sounds.

As a result, chest x-rays, EKGs and other cardiac interrogative tests are often ordered to identify adventitious lung and heart conditions.

He also noted that clinical issues with these expensive tests and devices is that, they are incapable of identify adventitious sounds and providing immediate and accurate feedback, consequently, utilization of such devices often results in significant clinical and health issues for the patients as well as a waste of valuable resource.

According to him: “As a result of these challenges, in 2018 I started working on inventing a digital stethoscope that could identify lung and heart sounds, interpret the sounds and immediately announce its findings to the users. The stethoscope is also capable of integrating its data into the electronic medical record.”

“With such capabilities, it will enhance physical assessment vital to health care providers and novice users. It will also ensure opportunities for timely intervention and prevention of further health decline in patients.”

“The stethoscope is also equipped with an electronic medical record (EMR) integration capabilities (essential to telemedicine) in order to improve care coordination and patient information portability.”

“The project received a USA patent on June 2nd 2020 and is currently in the prototype phase of production in the USA and Ukraine.”

“The eventual production of the stethoscope would be a great achievement of pride to Nigeria for a simple fact that a citizen of the country invented such critical medical equipment worthy of a USA patent,” he said.
