Hi elskersoz, welcome, I think you need the stethescope to put on his stomach, try that, have fun, good luck

The stethescope is the correct tool to use. It should work.

I've never heard of stomach compressions, until now. Chest compressions have the Aide Giver pumping up and down on the chest. Why would you do that to someones stomach?

To see if it can dislodge something like a heimlich maneuver?
Trust me, the stethescope works.

The correct term is AUSCULTATION not compression.

The Stethoscope does work. However, it is a huge pain. I remember it took me numerous attempts to touch the precise location of the stomach. So it can be done, be prepared. It may take a few tries.

There are actually several medical bloopers in this game and this is definitely one of them. Another one is having red cells fight bacteria. They may have done that one on purpose because it made a better graphic for the game or something, but it sure stands out to anyone with medical knowledge as being weird to say the least. <g>

Having said that, I still think it's a really FUN game, and I've enjoyed playing so far very much! I'm just glad to see anything medically related in an HO because until now, there really hasn't been anything like that at all that I'm aware of anyway.

As with the penlight and the pupils, make sure the cursor is on the abdomen. Don't worry about placing the bell of the stethoscope on the belly. The cursor is what is important.
