ScopeBug Kit Instructions For Use
Before you start….
Find a comfortable room that is quiet, private, and free of distractions. Make sure to close the door, shut windows, turn off the television and keep loud pets in another room if possible. Consider hanging a “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door to avoid interruptions. If you live in an area with slow internet, try using wired Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi. If you do use Wi-Fi, sit as close to your router as possible. Also, close other programs and make sure you’re not downloading any large files. If the audio becomes choppy during the visit, turn off your video stream to improve the quality of the call.
Connecting the otoscope to your computer:
Simply connect the USB to any USB socket. Your video platform should automatically switch to the bug’s camera. If not you can go to “settings” on your video platform and choose the correct camera.
Note, you can only connect this device to a USB type A socket.
Most desktops, laptops, and tablets should have this connection.
mobile phones generally are not suitable for this device.
Using the ScopeBug Camera:
Mouth - For this part of the exam, your doctor may request that you attach the Tongue Depressor attachment to ScopeBug.
To use this, simply slide the non-rounded end into the slot located below the light on the front until it cannot be advanced further.
To remove, pull firmly and clean with the Antiseptic Pad.
Nose - For this part of the exam, your doctor may request that you attach the Cone Attachment attachment to ScopeBug. To use this, simply slide the non-rounded end into the slot located below the light on the front until it cannot be advanced further. To remove, pull firmly and clean with the Antiseptic Pad.
Ears - Gently insert the Ergonomic Tip into the front of ScopeBug until it clicks in place.
Once the tip enters the nostril or the opening of the ear canal, it should be inserted no further, and no pressure should be exerted. If resistance or discomfort is experienced,
withdraw ScopeBug until it feels comfortable. Your doctor may advise you to change the angle, or rotate it, to see the best possible view.
After use, the tip may be removed and cleaned with the Antiseptic Pad.
Note: You can control the amount of light emitted from Scopebug using the dial along the cable.
Skin: Using ScopeBug without any attachments, you can get a clear image of any outside surface of the body. In order to measure abnormalities on the skin, or the distance from abnormalities to other structures on the body, you can use the Calipers. To measure, slide the two measuring feet apart until the abnormality in question fits precisely between them in centimeters. The ruler on the neck of the device will inform you how much distance is between the two prongs. For irregular or oval abnormalities, it is important to measure both length and width.
Body Temperature: Place the Digital Thermometer tip under your tongue. Hold it in the same spot for about 40 seconds, and you should try to keep your mouth closed during this time. Readings will continue to increase and the F (or C) symbol will flash during the measurement.
For Heart and Lungs - Connecting the stethoscope to your computer:
Simply connect the USB to any USB socket. Your audio platform should automatically switch to the Stethoscope’s microphone. If not you can go to “settings” on your audio platform and choose the correct microphone.
Note: You can only connect this device to a USB type A socket.
Most desktops, laptops, and tablets should have this connection. Mobile phones generally are not suitable for this device.
Using the Stethoscope :
For this part of the exam, press the circular pad of the Stethoscope firmly against the skin. Your doctor will inform you of the correct area on your body to place it, and once it is in the correct position, try not to move it until the doctor indicates that he or she has heard the necessary sounds. The circular pad may then be cleaned with the Antiseptic Pad after the exam is complete.
