The 3M Littmann Classic III – The Timeless Stethoscope with Limitless Features
Even though there are many stethoscopes to choose from, there is a clear favourite among clinicians, the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope. The popularity of this stethoscope is not out of the ordinary though, because this stethoscope has some amazing features that contribute to its acoustics, durability, and even comfort. To learn more about this stethoscope’s features, please read the information provided by the Mentone Educational team below.
What Is Special About the Acoustics of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope?
The 3M Littmann Classic III has impeccable acoustics because of the unique construction of the stethoscope itself. The stethoscope has a two-sided chestpiece, tuneable technology, but also soft-seal ear tips contributing to the acoustic capability of the Classic III.
Dual-sided chestpieces can save clinicians a bunch of time during examinations. On the dual-sided chestpiece of the Classic III, clinicians can find an adult chestpiece and a paediatric chestpiece. The adult chestpiece is used on most adult patients, while the paediatric chestpiece is used on neonatal and paediatric patients, as well as patients where good contact with a regular-size chestpiece is not possible.
Tuneable technology is another important contributor to the success of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope. With tuneable technology, a clinician can perceive sounds of both low and high frequencies. To perceive these frequencies, all the clinician must do is adjust the pressure on the chestpiece during the examination.
Finally, the soft-seal ear tips on the headset of this stethoscope create an acoustic seal during examinations. The ear tips align perfectly with the ear canals, preventing sound leaks and encouraging proper sound transmission.
What Is Special About the Durability of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope?
Some stethoscopes contain phthalate plasticisers and latex, but this is not the case for the Littmann Classic III. The Littmann Classic III Stethoscope is made from next-generation tubing, which is not only free of these materials, but also guarantees a lengthier lifespan.
Next-generation tubing is a compound that is more resistant to common substances found in hospitals; this includes skin oils and alcohol. Through this added resistance, the material is likely to cause stains, or less likely to show signs of premature wear and tear.
To get the most from your stethoscope, it is still recommended to have a barrier between the skin and the stethoscope’s tubing; this can be done with something as easy as a shirt collar when wearing the stethoscope around the neck. It is also advised to store the stethoscope in a safe location; preferably out of direct sunlight.
What Is Special About the Comfort of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope?
The 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope has a bunch of comfort features too. These comfort features are bound to come in handy for clinicians who pull long hours at the hospital.
Firstly, the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope is a lightweight stethoscope; this means it is easy to wear around the neck for longer periods of time. The stethoscope also flexes reliably, so it can be stored in the pocket of the clinician too.
The 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope also comes with an anatomically-designed headset. Clinicians can also increase and decrease the size of the headset; this by pressing on the headset or by pulling it apart. So, each headset will fit comfortably on the head of the clinicians in question.
Finally, the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope also has soft-seal ear tips. These ear tips do not only form the perfect acoustic seal, they also align perfectly with the ear canals of the clinician. So, clinicians can say goodbye to having to wear uncomfortable ear tips.
Please note that ear tips are available in various sizes for the 3M Littman Classic III Stethoscope. If the standard ear tips are not the right fit for you, you can easily find replacement ear tips suitable for your ear size at Mentone Educational.
