3M™ Littmann® Learning App
Test. Learn. This unique and interactive educational app allows healthcare professionals to apply their auscultation skills to a library of clinical scenarios. All accessible from the palm of your hand.
Developed by 3M’s Litmann® Stethoscope business in collaboration with the 3M Health Care Academy, this comprehensive training programme contains real sounds and patient assessments based on genuine patient histories and tests. Track your progress as you learn and test yourself against best practice using a range of heart and lung sounds. Then apply your knowledge to a variety of patient simulations.

The 3M Littmann Learning App includes a range of learning modules:
- Introduction to auscultation best practice education.
- Access to a library of 10 heart sounds.

Important information: The audio quality of the sounds played through a computer, tablet or smartphone device may not be a faithful representation of the actual sounds heard on auscultation. This is due to the acoustical performance of sound cards, their associated drivers, or the frequency response of the headphones or speakers used. Therefore there is a possibility that the user may not be able to fully hear all clinically relevant sounds.
Disclaimer: Whilst based on genuine patient histories, all patients represented in this educational package are fictitious and any similarity with persons past or present is purely coincidental. For educational purposes only.
