ACC 2013 San Francisco

9th – 11th March 2013 saw the Medisave USA team attend the ACC13 in San Francisco’s Moscone Center in conjunction with 3M Littmann. Focussing on the transformation of cardiovascular care – from discovery to delivery, thousands of delegates attended the session learning about the latest developments in cardiology while combining the sunny atmosphere of the west coast city famed for its Golden Gate Bridge and infamous penitentiary Alcatraz.

 

UK colleagues joined the USA team and together with representatives from 3M Littmann from as far as China, UK, and Australia liaised with thousands of delegates from across the globe to advise the advantages of buying a Littmann stethoscope. With the added benefit of personalisation on the spot, the stand was surrounded by cardiology specialists fascinated to view their new stethoscope being engraved with our latest engraving technology.

 

The usual buzz surrounded the electronic models – particularly the Littmann 3200 with its 12 track recording facility. And of course, the colour tubing and new finishes on Cardiology models caused inevitable curiosity. With smoke finishes, brass, and rainbow editions, queues bordered the stand eager to obtain their latest Littmann.

 

All in all a great success for the team, and 3M Littmann working in unison to promote the professionals choice in stethoscope. Check out the photos below!

 

Will you marry me?

A rising trend amongst our customers here in the UK, and also in the USA and our other global locations is the idea of using the engraving facility to propose when buying a stethoscope for your significant other.

 

When it comes to an unusual and unique way to ask your loved one in the medical profession to marry you, we are finding this is an special and increasingly popular method by which to pop the question. Around ten of our consumers from across the world have decided on this distinctive way to ask their partner to marry them.  And usually they let us know the outcome. Happily in all cases a “yes”. Whether this is because the beneficiary is enthralled by the loving gesture and cannot resist we can only speculate!

 

Besides some funny and curious names, and the intermittent “Happy Birthday” and “Good Luck” messages, the “Will You Marry Me?” in its variety of incarnations and languages has recently grown in popularity at times of importance such as anniversaries, birthdays and Valentine’s day we inevitably envisage a peak in popularity. Unsurprisingly, it is the Littmann Stethoscope which is the preferred choice and add our symbol engraving such as hearts or stars into the mix and you have one distinctive stethoscope! Some also choose a finish or colour which might signify something special or significant to their other half.
