3M, a Fortune 500 company known for its diversified technologies and innovations, today announced that its 3M(TM) Littmann(R) electronic stethoscope from the Medical Products Division has been selected for the popular science magazine "Popular Science". For the "2009 Best Health and Technological Achievements in Health". The advent of the product marks the first major upgrade of the stethoscope invented in the past two centuries.
Debra Rectenwald, vice president of prevention and infection at 3M, said, "The 3M(TM) Littmann(R) electronic stethoscope is a big step in changing the way clinicians identify heart abnormalities. The award recognizes the spirit of innovation. The development of 3M has opened up a new path for the advancement of health care."
John Kallassy, â€‹â€‹CEO of Zargis Medical, said, "3M and Sargis have teamed up to turn traditional electronic stethoscopes into advanced medical tools that replace doctors' guesses about heart murmurs and improve diagnostic capabilities. Cardioscan software breakthroughs in medical technology Its application reduces unnecessary medical referrals and improves diagnostic results."
3M's 3M(TM) Littmann(R) Electronic Stethoscope is the first electronic stethoscope to use Bluetooth technology to wirelessly transmit signals from the heart, lungs and other body organs to a computer used by doctors, and in real time via Cardioscan software. The sound curve is displayed on the computer screen to more accurately reveal the possible abnormalities in the patient's heart. The software then analyzes the sonic curve and highlights the details of the anomalous portion of the unwanted noise. The doctor can reduce the playback speed by half to analyze the problem more carefully, save the file to the patient's test results, and email it to the cardiologist to confirm the diagnosis. Not only does this system accurately capture dangerous murmurs, but it also reduces the cost of more expensive ECG exams and the need for unnecessary cardiologists.
Mark Jannot, editor-in-chief of The New Era of Technology, said, "For 22 years, the New Era of Technology has been in recognition of the innovations that have surprised us. These products have a positive impact on our world today and change our vision for future development. The 'Best Technology Achievement Award' is the highest honor of our magazine.
