Bill, I have a suggestion for you to consider for your workshop - a heart sound analyzer that is simple to construct using an ordinary USB microphone and Open Source software (audacity). Details are available here: DIY Heart Sound Analyzer. My hope is that this simple analyzer will be valuable in medical settings where resources are limited.

@djdoyle

Since the details are already provided in the URL you reference and since only a Windows computer, earphone and Audacity is required, what would you have Bill do in a video on the topic ?

I was kidnapped by mimes.
They did unspeakable things to me.

Hi Will, I was thinking that Bill might show how easy it would be to bring everything together and show how it works. It would be a nice, quick, starting project for anyone interested in the field of medical instrumentation. John

@djdoyle Isn't that a stethoscope?

It is considered poor judgement to traverse a chasm in 2 leaps.

@zander Yes, it is a digital stethoscope with a number of advanced features. Technically, it is a phonocardiogram recording and analysis system.

@djdoyle Ok. I have rewritten my response 5 times now trying to not come off as a SA but just put together the concepts of over a decade of training for a DR, using very expensive (liability insurance costs) medical instruments and DIY medical instruments and 3rd party liability.

I haven't looked at the link, but if @will says it runs on Windows and has all the details, that's good enough for me.  You understand this is most specifically a micro processor forum - Arduino.  This sounds like you want free marketing by someone (Bill) that is well respected.
