At the Littmann® booth at the recent National Teaching Institure & Critical Care Exposition, in Houston, Texas, the Medisave team had the pleasure of assisting a member of stethoscope royalty in choosing herself a new stethoscope…

Attending the event was Lisa Littmann Cranford – granddaughter of the legendary Dr. David Littmann, founder of Littmann® stethoscopes and inventor of the dual-headed chestpiece design that is still the backbone of Littmann® stethoscope technology to this day.

Whilst getting her new mirror finish Littmann Cardiology IV laser engraved at the booth Lisa was kind enough to share some fascinating insight into the human story behind the brand. She even brought along her grandfathers original Littmann stethoscope!
