The founder of wooshers, the Pulsatile tinnitus forum has been in touch again. It seems this time someone may have successfully used my iOS app iStethoscope Pro to record the elusive sound of her condition. This is what she said:

One of our group members has had success listening to the objective pulsatile tinnitus with your iStethoscope App. She gave me permission to share her experience with you, since I told her I thought you'd be interested!

She's been diagnosed with superior canal dehiscence and bilateral sigmoid sinus diverticulum. She has already had surgery on one side to correct it, and is awaiting surgery on the other side. Anyway, here is the post she shared on our Facebook page. I am fascinated by this and hope to again ask others --particularly those with a similar diagnosis-- if they too can hear their whoosh with the app. She is thrilled that she can now share the actual audio sound with her doctors and everyone. The doctor who performed the surgery --Dr David Eisenman in Baltimore-- is a doctor I've been in touch with for several years and he has corrected many patients' symptoms.

Do you have an iphone? The app is way cool! the Microphone at the bottom of the phone is used as the "stethoscope" you put earbud style headphones in and wear them. Then you open the app and crank the careful, just like a real steth if youve ever used one, it's LOUD...dont talk into it lol. You can listen to your heart with it by firmly pressing the bottom of the phone right where a stethoscope goes...same thing. Put it over you belly, you will hear your bowel. Put it one the sides of your ribcageor back, and you hear you lungs. Putting it all over different pulses in the body, I found my venous hum...which i already knew i had even though the doctors coudnt hear it. Right above the clavicles...I have it both sides and it goes away with certain head positions.

Hi Peter...that was me, the app is really something else! I wasn't able to get it to record with the app but have used it to let many people hear it. I have bilateral sigmoid sinus dehiscence and diverticuli however had the right repaired in January and just had the left repaired two and a half days ago. I don't have superior canal dehiscence though...that was a miscommunication. The app is really helpful astounded many friends and family to be able to step into my world for a few seconds!
