The stethoscope has undergone a high-tech makeover sporting a bluetooth connectivity and an LCD panel.
3M Health Care has announced the Littmann Electronic Stethoscope which packs features most headphone users would be familiar with, such as noise cancellation and greater sound clarity. With the souped-up hearing, the Littman then transmits the lung, heart and body sounds wirelessly to the bundled Zargis StethAssist program for further analysis, as well as to keep a record on file. The cost has also been upgraded, at a pricey USD379, which hopefully won’t trickle down too much to the tab on your next visit to the clinic.
