Zargis Cardioscan software, the 3M Littmann Electronic Stethoscope Model 3200 and access to ZargisTelemed, Zargis’ Internet-based telemedicine portal can be purchased online.

The ability to record and automatically analyze heart sounds can help improve a clinician’s confidence, document complex auscultations, and may keep some patients from going through additional, unnecessary testing, stated Joseph Tartaglia, MD, a practicing cardiologist in White Plains, NY, and clinical assistant professor of medicine at New York Medical College in Valhalla, NY.

Cardioscan heart sound analysis software is designed to support physicians in analyzing and interpreting cardiac sounds which can be signs of heart disease. Cardioscan connects wirelessly to the Bluetooth-enabled 3M Littmann Electronic Stethoscope Model 3200, and integrates with the ZargisTelemed portal, a HIPAA-compliant feature of Cardioscan allowing users to easily share heart sounds recordings, analyzed results and comments with colleagues via the Internet.

At a time of focusing on leveraging technology to improve healthcare efficiency, these devices represents auscultation that have the potential to reduce unnecessary referrals, and help clinicians detect pathologic heart murmurs earlier in the treatment cycle, stated John Kallassy, CEO of Zargis Medical. We believe that the use of our software could enhance the physician experience during every patient exam where a stethoscope is used.
