New 3M™ Littmann® Electronic Stethoscope 3000 range launches in the Middle East

New 3M™ Littmann® Electronic Stethoscope 3000 range launches in the Middle East

This Bluetooth® technology in the 3200 model allows medical professionals to wirelessly transmit sounds real-time to a PC for further analysis, attachment to electronic medical records or for reviewing online with colleagues. This advanced model includes Zargis StethAssit™ sound analysis software which visualizes heart, lung and other body sounds, playback in bell, diaphragm or extended range, display and print as phonocardiogram, and has the capability to save patient information.

In the studies, 83% of cardiologists indicated it was easier to detect/hear an S3 gallop, 82% of cardiologists indicated it was easier to detect/hear an aortic regurgitation murmur(Grade 1 or 2) and 90% of critical care nurses indicated it was easier to detect/hear abnormal lung sounds with the Littmann® stethoscope 3000 series. When using a non-electronic, cardiology-type stethoscope versus this electronic range, cardiologists missed an S3 gallop 40% more often, a Grade 2 aortic regurgitation murmur five times more often and critical care nurses misidentified whether a sound was normal or abnormal two times more often.

3M™’s latest Littmann® stethoscope can quiet the buzzing and humming of any external sounds when trying to listen to lung, heart and abdominal sounds. It is the best way to detect difficult-to-hear sounds. Also, the Bluetooth™ technology allows doctors to instantly transmit sounds to their computer and email them quickly for second opinions,” said Caroline Bilen, Senior Technical Specialist from 3M.

The 3M™ Littmann® Electronic Stethoscope series is easy to operate, lightweight and comfortable, has a worry-free power system and a convenient LCD Interface. Its amazing capacity to detect even the faintest of sounds comes from the following features:

Proprietary Ambient Noise Reduction Technology

The 3M™ Littmann® Electronic Stethoscope cancels out, on average, 85% of ambient background noise that can interfere with the auscultation experience, without eliminating critical body sounds. So medical professionals are much less likely to miss the sounds they need to hear in noisy work environments.

Acoustic Seal Eartips

3M™ Littmann® Snap Tight Soft-Sealing Eartips provide a comfortable fit but also create an excellent acoustic seal. It means a tighter seal from ambient noise entering through eartip connections.

State-of-the-Art Sound Sensor

Built to stringent specifications, this new stethoscope provides a life-like 3M™ Littmann® sound experience similar to a high-end cardiology stethoscope. The sound received from the sensor is transmitted naturally to ears through the tubing.

Frictional Noise Reduction Technology

A number of changes in the chest piece help reduce handling noises compared to earlier electronic stethoscopes. It is therefore less distracting, helping medical professionals focus more on what they need to hear.

Up to 24X Sound Amplification

Extra listening power is needed for those times when for example a heart, lung or body sound is especially faint; when a patient is obese; or when a patient’s clothing restricts the listening experience.

This range allows medical professionals to capture a sound for later playback.
