Tool Details



Listen smart, treat smarter

Whisper® Veterinary Stethoscope System is the only tool specifically designed to detect lung health status for improved BRD confirmation. 

In eight seconds, Whisper provides users with a lung severity scale of 1 to 5, allowing veterinarians to confirm the BRD diagnosis and determine a more accurate treatment plan based on the disease severity of the lungs.

How Does Whisper Work?
Step 1: Whisper is placed on the animal’s right side (approximately two inches back and slightly up from the front elbow) for eight seconds.
Step 2: The electronic stethoscope wirelessly transmits the animal’s lung sound to a computer.
Step 3: The software assesses the recording and provides a score – ranging from 1 to 5 – that reflects a sliding scale of disease severity. A lung score of one indicates no signs of lung tissue damage, while a lung score of five indicates permanent lung tissue damage.
