Discover the Latest 3M Littmann Stethoscope with Rainbow Finish
3M Littmann is known to create stethoscopes with top performance, but the design of their stethoscopes stands out too; this is especially the case for the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope with rainbow finish. Of course, this stethoscope still has the characteristic Classic III benefits, which we will disclose below.
What Is the First Characteristic of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope?
The first characteristic of a 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope is its tuneable technology. Tuneable technology is useful in many clinical environments, since it enables the clinician to easily distinguish between low and high frequency sounds by adjusting the pressure on the chestpiece.
To detect low frequency sounds during an examination, the clinician only needs to add a light pressure on the chestpiece. To hear high frequency sounds, clinicians apply a firmer pressure on the chestpiece. It is that straightforward.
What Is the Second Characteristic of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope?
The 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope is also characterised by a dual-sided chestpiece; this means the chestpiece of this stethoscope contains a paediatric diaphragm as well as an adult diaphragm. The paediatric diaphragm also covers the open bell, so each clinician using the Classic III stethoscope can certainly benefit from a lot of versatility.
What Is the Third Characteristic of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope?
Clinicians who use a 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope can also count on the characteristic anatomically-designed headset. The headset provides superior comfort when worn and can be adjusted depending on the head size of the clinician.
If the clinician needs to increase the size of the headset, the tubes of the headset can be pulled apart. Simply pull the headset until the desired head size is obtained. If the headset needs to be smaller, simply press the tubes on the headset to decrease the headset size.
Adjusting the size of the headset regularly is not a problem, since Littmann has shown that the next-generation tubing can be flexed reliably up to a million times. So, even clinicians who like to store their stethoscope in the pocket can do so as they desire.
What Is the Fourth Characteristic of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope?
The fourth characteristic of the 3M Littmann is a set of soft-seal ear tips, which are attached to the headset of this stethoscope. The soft-seal ear tips have more than one function. On one hand, the soft-seal ear tips provide superior comfort to the clinician wearing them. On the other hand, the ear tips form a barrier between the clinician and his environment. This barrier reduces ambient noise coming from the environment, but also optimises sound transmission during a physical examination.
What Is the Fifth Characteristic of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope?
Another major characteristic of 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscopes is the tubing, which is made from next-generation compound. The next-generation compound adds more durability to the stethoscope; this since the substance is more resistant against skin oils and alcohol.
Skin oils and alcohol are common causes for premature wear and tear on stethoscope tubing material. Littmann decided to fix that problem by using a next-generation compound, making the stethoscope more suitable for hospital environments.
Next-generation compound is also a material that is free of latex and phthalate plasticisers. Patients and clinicians sensitive to these materials will therefore not experience any bad reactions when encountering the tubing of this stethoscope.
What Is the Sixth Characteristic of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope?
Littmann stethoscopes are also known for their easy maintenance. During the design phase of this stethoscope, Littmann took maintenance in consideration, giving the chestpiece a less angular shape. By doing so, it is less likely for grime and dirt to end up in the chestpiece, making the stethoscope more sanitary overall.
The chestpiece of the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope can easily be disassembled for more thorough maintenance. The diaphragms can be removed, after which the clinician can perform an in-depth clean with a dedicated alcohol-wipe.
It is important not to clean the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope in a steriliser of any kind; this could cause damage to the stethoscope’s delicate mechanism. The stethoscope should also not be submerged in any liquid. Instead, choose a simple alcohol wipe. Also, take special care when reassembling your chestpiece.
Where Can I Go with Questions About This 3M Littmann Stethoscope?
