3M Littmann CORE Digital Stethoscope Honored in Fast Company’s 2022 World Changing Ideas Awards

06 May 2022: 3M™ Littmann® has announced its 3M™ Littmann® CORE Digital Stethoscope received honorable mention accolades in the health category of the 2022 Fast Company World Changing Ideas global awards program recognizing companies, products and initiatives that support innovation for the public good and tackle social inequality, climate change and public health crises.

Currently available in 21 countries, 3M Littmann CORE Digital Stethoscope is a first-of-its-kind smart stethoscope. Released in October 2020, it marries best-in-class 3M Littmann technology with advanced digital innovations from Eko, a digital health company advancing heart and lung disease detection. Benefits to clinicians include:

  • Sound amplification up to 40 times – at peak frequency versus analog – to help health care providers with different hearing abilities and identify hard to hear body noises.
  • Active noise cancellation to help reduce distracting background sounds for those working in noisy environments.
  • Easy one-button toggling between analog and digital amplification modes to suit the clinician’s listening needs.
  • Visualization of sound data during auscultation. The ability to see the pathology is another tool to help clinicians with diagnoses.
  • HIPAA compliant means to save and annotate 15-, 30-, 60- or 120-second recordings in a secure dashboard.
  • Analysis of heart sounds to aid in the detection of the presence of suspected heart murmurs in seconds with Eko’s FDA-cleared and clinically-proven AI algorithm.

“3M Littmann is a pioneer and proven leader in auscultation innovation and quality. The 3M Littmann CORE Digital Stethoscope is our most advanced stethoscope yet and we believe it will help the world tackle heart disease, one preventative screening at a time,” said Kristi Barnett, 3M medical devices senior director.
