  • Improving the doctor-patient connection

    The digital age has brought uncountable enhancements to the healthcare industry, but more patients nowadays feel like the human touch in medicine is missing. Despite that, clinicians like you shouldn’t be discouraged – after all, hospitals are increasingly busy, and doctors and nurses are required to be as efficient as possible.

    The good news is: building a trusting relationship with your new patients can be quick and easy. The stethoscope is often the first point of physical contact, and can be used to break the ice at the initial meeting. Having a stethoscope that reflects your personality can also aid in calming down your patient, which will help foster trust and facilitate more meaningful interactions.

  • Have a (stethoscope with) heart

    As the 3M™ Littmann® stethoscope evolved, features that enhanced the human touch during patient examination were incorporated. Additions such as the non-chill bell sleeves that insulates your patients’ skin against a cold stethoscope bell rim were introduced. Small, but significant improvements like these tell patients a lot about how much you care, and the level of professionalism that you bring to your work.

    We believe that when you hear better, you connect better with your patients. The 3M™ Littmann® Cardiology IV™ and Classic III™ stethoscopes feature advanced 3M™ Littmann® tunable technology to help you learn your patients’ conditions better through consistent high acoustic performance. They are now available in fresh, exciting colours and chestpiece finishes to suit your personal style.
