Innovative Littmann tunable technology
3M Littmann Stethoscopes are renowned worldwide for their quality, performance and innovative design. One of the innovations that makes Littmann stethoscopes unique is its tunable technology.
How Tunable Technology Works:
Tunable, or dual-frequency, stethoscope diaphragms combine the bell (for low frequencies) and the diaphragm (for high frequencies) into a single side of the chestpiece. Move between bell and diaphragm modes by simply varying the pressure applied to the patient—there is no need to turn the chestpiece over. For low-frequency sounds, rest the chestpiece lightly on the patient. When the diaphragm membrane is suspended, the membrane resonates low-frequency sounds. For high-frequency sounds, use firm contact pressure on the chestpiece. By pressing on the chestpiece, the movement of the diaphragm membrane is restricted. This blocks low-frequency sounds and allows you to hear the higher frequency sounds.
Taking care of your 3M Littmann stethoscope
3M Littmann stethoscopes are designed to provide years of reliable service. Cleaning your stethoscope regularly ensures optimal acoustic performance, helps to extend the life of the scope, and leaves it looking shiny and new.
General Cleaning Tips
- If your stethoscope needs to be disinfected, wipe with a 70% isopropyl alcohol solution
- Do not immerse your stethoscope in any liquid or subject it to any sterilization process
- Keep your stethoscope away from extreme heat, cold, solvents and oils
- Eartips can be removed from the ear tubes for thorough cleaning
- Most Littmann Stethoscopes feature tubing made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). PVC becomes hard when exposed to skin for extended periods of time. If you like to wear your stethoscope around your neck, wear it over a collar to keep the tubing flexible.
