3M To Buy Zargis Medical-Software Used by Blue Tooth Stethoscope

1 Mins read

This makes sense as the stethoscope was a combined effort of 3M and Zargis. The Littmann Electronic Stethoscope, packs features most headphone users would be familiar with, such as noise cancellation and greater sound clarity. The device has been around for a while now and the video below is kind of cool to let you see what actually appears on the computer and more on how it works. The software as shown on the video offers a lot more information and data and you also have a record. Also stated is that there are some trouble areas shown, but the software can also detect the difference between critical and non critical issues.

3M announced today it has acquired certain assets of Zargis Medical Corp., maker of the only FDA-approved diagnostic software to classify suspected systolic and diastolic heart murmurs. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. This acquisition builds on the existing global marketing and distribution alliance between 3M and Zargis Medical. The combination of electronic stethoscopes and telemedicine/diagnostic software enables new and innovative healthcare practices for auscultation, which refers to listening to internal sounds of the body with a stethoscope.
