3M introduces its first disposable stethoscope.
Now, clinicians caring for patients in isolation don’t have to compromise what they hear through a disposable stethoscope. 3M has combined two areas of its expertise—advanced acoustic engineering and infection prevention—to produce the new 3M™ Single-Patient Stethoscope that delivers excellent acoustic performance and a comfortable design.
Intended for single-patient use in isolation room settings, this single-patient disposable stethoscope helps eliminate the potential risk of patient-to-patient cross-contamination introduced by reusable stethoscopes. Medical professionals can depend on the 3M™ Single-Patient Stethoscope for listening to heart, lung, and other sounds for patient assessment and diagnosis.
