The 3M Littmann company has a lot of experience in producing electronic stethoscopes. Both of the 3100 and 3200 models will relay accurate sound to the clinician using them; utilizing state of the art technology. As with any medical device there is a learning curve. However, this is easily and quickly overcome via the accompanying video. Instructions provided by Littmann are clear and easy to understand. It should be mentioned though that neither stethoscope is operational if the batteries are dead. Each operates with one AA cell battery and the battery life is variable depending on use. The 3100 model provides excellent ability to assess lung and heart sounds and the 3200 model adds the recording feature. To purchase the extra app for this Bluetooth-enabled app, go to Google Play or the App store. For clinicians looking for a lightweight, reliable electronic stethoscope, either of these models would work well. If you need or wish to record heart/lung sounds, the 3200 model is what you should purchase.
