A Nigerian medical expert based in the United States (U.S.), Dr Samson Arigbamu, has invented a stethoscope equipped with components capable of immediately identifying adventitious lungs such as Covid-19 infected lungs that will immediately announce its findings.
Arigbamu disclosed on Sunday in a mail made available to journalists in Ibadan, Oyo State capital, that the stethoscope is in production at prototype and optimisation stage, adding that the final product would commence by December. He noted that, however, that the process could be expedited with resources from individuals, organisations or even the Nigerian government.
Arigbamu has been living in the USA for about 22 years and is currently the Director of Nursing at Future Care Lochearn, a 200-bed capacity health rehabilitation center in Baltimore, Maryland.
He has been employed by the company for 10 years. Prior to that, he was a director of nursing at Manor Care Woodbridge in Baltimore Maryland for over three years. Also, he currently owns and operates a private clinic called Upsurge Health Associate in Freeland, Maryland.
The medical expert maintained that the eventual production of the stethoscope would be a great achievement to the Nigerian government and solicited support from Nigeria government.
