Better Performance Delivered by the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope!
Clinicians demand the best performance of their stethoscope; this benefits them, but also the patients they treat. Fortunately, there are solid stethoscopes out there with remarkable features, delivering the performance clinicians have come to expect.
One of the stethoscopes that delivers outstanding performance is the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope. If you want to learn more about the performance benefits of this stethoscope, please read the information provided by Mentone Educational below.
What Is the First Performance Benefit of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope?
The first performance-related benefit of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope is the tuneable diaphragm; this piece of technology allows clinicians to hear sounds of various frequencies simply by adjusting the pressure on the chestpiece.
Stethoscopes with a tuneable diaphragm are often preferred by clinicians, since this type of chestpiece can save a considerable amount of time. Instead of having to change stethoscopes or chestpieces, all the clinician does is adjust the pressure. Therefore, 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscopes are often preferred by clinicians working in hospitals.
What Is the Second Performance Benefit of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope?
The 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope performs better than most stethoscopes where durability is concerned; this is due to the next-generation tubing, the material the tubing of the stethoscope is made of.
Next-generation tubing is a material that does not contain latex or phthalate plasticisers. Since some people have a sensitivity to these materials, it means that next-generation tubing is more suitable for a clinical environment.
Another benefit of next-generation tubing is its resistance against skin oils and alcohol. These are two compounds regularly found in medical environments, so a lack of resistance against these substances could cause premature wear and tear on the tubing. Fortunately, this is not a problem with the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope.
What Is the Third Performance Benefit of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope?
The third performance benefit of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope is once again found on the chestpiece. The chestpiece of this stethoscope has two sides; one side for adult patients, the other side suitable for paediatric patients.
Being able to switch between adult and paediatric patients is a must in most medical environments, whether it is a clinician working in a doctor surgery or hospital. With the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope, the clinician can turn the chestpiece to the side that is needed.
The paediatric side of the chestpiece does not prove useful for paediatric patients, since proper contact cannot be reached with a regular chestpiece for some adult patients. For these patients, the paediatric side of the chestpiece can be used too.
Please note that the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope also has an open bell. The open bell is hidden under the paediatric side of the chestpiece, so the clinician can remove the paediatric diaphragm when the open bell is required. Naturally, this provides a lot more versatility for this stethoscope overall.
What Is the Fourth Performance Benefit of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope?
The 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope guarantees optimal sound transmission through the precision-machined chestpiece, but also through the soft-seal ear tips on the headset. The soft-seal ear tips have several functions; this includes optimal sound transmission, but also comfort and the creation of an acoustic seal.
Soft-seal ear tips on the headset of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope have an anatomical alignment; this means the ear tips align perfectly with the ears of the clinician. The alignment makes the headset more comfortable for the clinician, but also creates an acoustic seal that reduces ambient noise from a clinical environment. Needless to say, this proves useful in a noisy hospital environment.
Of course, the acoustic prowess of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope does not only benefit from the soft-seal ear tips. The tuneable technology we mentioned earlier also contributes to the optimal sound transmission delivered by this stethoscope. So, 3M Littmann has outdone itself with the amazing acoustic technology on this stethoscope.
Which Clinicians Will Use the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope?
There is a wide range of clinicians who use the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope daily. It is often used in medical offices, general wards, ambulatory clinics, and urgent care units. Therefore, many clinicians will find that the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope is perfect for the job.
What Are the Benefits of the Chestpiece of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope?
The chestpiece of any stethoscope is important since the quality and the construction of the stethoscope contributes directly to its functionality and effectiveness. Fortunately, the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope has a chestpiece that has been precision-machined, ensuring countless auscultation and maintenance benefits for clinicians.
Due to the less angular shape of the chestpiece, clinicians do not have to worry about dirt and grime pile-ups in the creases and crevices of the chestpiece. The smooth and streamlined design allows them to give the chestpiece a quick wipe down between patients, saving them a lot of valuable time.
The chestpiece of the 3M Littmann Classic III is also a double-sided chestpiece; this means the stethoscope contains a chestpiece for adult examinations as well as a chestpiece for neonatal and paediatric examinations. Each side of the chestpiece also has tuneable technology, which enables the clinician to hear both low and high frequency sounds by adjusting the pressure on the chestpiece.
What Are the Benefits of the Headset of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope?
Each 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope is equipped with an anatomically designed and adjustable headset; this means clinicians can adjust their headset for optimal comfort and functionality. To increase or decrease the size of the headset, clinicians simply pull or squeeze the tubes of the headset, which makes its operation straightforward.
Even the ear tips on the headset have an anatomical design; this once again provides benefit for the overall comfort of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope. The ear tips align with the ear canals of the clinician, ensuring optimal comfort while it is being used. Of course, a proper fit also provides benefits for auscultation, since good-fitting ear tips provide an acoustic seal that reduces ambient noise and increases sound transmission.
What Are the Benefits of the Tubing Material of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope?
The 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope also has some outstanding tubing material. The material is called next-generation tubing and it is completely free of latex and phthalate plasticisers. Evidently, this is beneficial for clinicians who have allergies to such materials.
Next-generation tubing is also more resistant to common compounds such as skin oils and alcohol. Since these compounds can cause premature damage to your stethoscope, a 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope could be the more durable option.
Can I Test the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope with Burgundy Tubing and Black Finish?
Clinicians often like to test a stethoscope before they purchase it. Fortunately, this is possible at the Mentone Educational showroom, where you can test a large range of stethoscopes and other medical supplies.
