Littmann Quality, Connective Technologies

The CORE Digital features Littmann’s finest engineering and manufacturing quality combined with advanced digital technologies that ensure this stethoscope is suitable for modern medical professionals. FDA-cleared and HIPAA compliant, among the flagship features of this is its ability to connect with Littman’s Eko software that visualizes heart sounds wave forms and allows easy sharing with patients or colleagues.

Offering intuitive connectivity with both iOS and Android, this software allows the user to save and annotate 15, 30, 60 or 120-second recordings on a standard smartphone or tablet. In addition to this, the user can create a library of heart sounds for disease monitoring or educational purposes, securely share recordings with colleagues, and use Eko Artificial Intelligence to aid in the detection of murmurs.

High-Sensitivity Analogue & Digital Acoustics

Including soft-sealing ear tips that provide acoustic occlusion and lasting comfort over long periods, instant feedback is relayed from a tuneable, dual-sided stainless steel chestpiece with open or closed bell. This 3M invention allows the user to hear different frequencies by simply adjusting the pressure.

In addition to these analogue listening technologies, however, the 3M Littmann CORE Digital also offer advanced digital listening options that deliver up to 40x amplification over analogue mode. This, combined with active noise cancellation technology allows you to auscultate with unparalleled accuracy and confidence, ensuring even the most subtle heart sounds can be identified.

Finally, with the ability to toggle quickly and easily between both analogue and digital listening modes, you can tailor your auscultation technique to your preferences or the patients’ requirements, ensuring the most comprehensive stethoscope examinations in any setting.
