Acoustic stethoscope is a primary diagnostic tool used by doctors for effective analysis of various diseases. But, it suffers defects such as low level heart sounds and presence of murmurs. This project aims at developing 'Noise removal in stethoscope using Butterworth filter'. In this, the low level heart sounds were amplified with high gain pre-amplifier circuit. A review of basic filters like low pass RC filter, Butterworth filter, Chebyshev filter and Bessel filter are done for elimination
