An instrument used by doctors and hospital staff to monitor patients for abnormal body sounds. Often used to assess the heartbeats/heart tones and sounds of the lungs of those affected. The stethoscope was invented in 1819 by the French physician Laennec. Quite simple compared to today’s models, it was equipped with a long paper tube. Although simple, it was still very effective. A quarter of a century later, the New Yorker Cammann developed a stethoscope with an earpiece for both ears. This type of stethoscope has been used for over a hundred years with some minor changes. In the 1960s, a doctor named Littman developed an incomparably modern stethoscope with significantly improved acoustic properties. This achievement transformed a simple listening device into an efficient diagnostic device. Thanks to these and other achievements and awards, today’s 3M Littmann stethoscope is the measure of all things by which other stethoscopes are judged. The name Littmann stands for quality, which means superior acoustics, innovative aesthetics and outstanding performance.


High-quality stethoscopes are usually solid and well crafted. In addition to flexible ear olives and adjustable earhooks, an ergonomically shaped chest piece provides drawn-in results. A funnel and a membrane are integrated in the double head.

In some devices, the earhooks are a little too rigid (inflexible).
