iPax, PBL Application Examples
The iPax chest and back illustrations can be changed, allowing for a more realistic case scenario setting by changing the picture or illustration to match your PBL scenario.
HR and RR can be selected from the iPax database.

Q: How did you feel about the iPax you used this time from the instructor's point of view? Please tell us about the advantages and disadvantages compared to conventional teaching materials and simulators.
A: With iPax, you can hear the sound of the part where you move the stethoscope on the screen, so it was very realistic and popular. It was difficult to hear the breath sounds in the part where I wanted to hear the sound (middle precordial lobe), and it was sometimes difficult whether it was our clumsiness or a problem with the system.
Comment from Telemedica:
In iPax, vesicular sounds are set near the middle precordial lobe. This sound is difficult to hear because it has a lower pitch and volume than tracheal breath sounds and bronchial breath sounds. When outputting the iPax auscultation sound played on a computer to the venue, the sound will be louder if it is output to speakers that support deep bass through an amplifier. Or use Kikuzo to share auscultatory sounds without the need for a large sound system.
Q: What was iPax like from the participants’ point of view? Please tell us about the advantages and disadvantages of the comparison with conventional teaching materials.
A: The participants expressed their surprise at this as a new product. It seems that it was interesting to use it from an educational point of view.
Comment from Telemedica : Thank you. At other academic societies, when we exhibited iPax as a company, we received similar opinions. Please see below.
Neonatal Case 1: Heart murmur due to right ventricular outflow tract stenosis
In this case, you can listen to the heart sounds and bowel sounds.
Tetralogy of fallot
36 weeks 5 days in gestation and birth weight is 2374g. This is a newborn baby with Noonan syndrome and tetralogy of Fallot.
3 days after birth. Heart rate at 156bpm.
The split of sound II is so slight that it isn’t recognizable until you lower the sound speed.
An ejection murmur is heard during systole.
A murmur heard from the right ventricular outflow tract obstruction (subpulmonary arterial valve and an obstruction over 7mm).
A faint alarm sound of the ECG monitor can be heard in the background.
