Discover the Perfect Stethoscope for the Modern Clinician: The 3M Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope with Raspberry Tube and Smoke Finish!
The days of the old-fashioned black with grey stethoscopes are long gone, because stethoscopes are now coming in various designs, colours, and finishes. A prime example of the stethoscope evaluation can be found in our 3M Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope with Smoke Finish and Raspberry Tube. To learn more about this amazing release from the 3M Littmann brand, be sure to read the info below.
Why Should I Choose This 3M Littmann Cardiology IV Over Other Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscopes?
Choosing one of the Littmann Cardiology IV stethoscopes over another is often a personal choice, since the only difference between the stethoscopes is the tubing colour and the finish. Each 3M Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope provides the same benefits, only the overall colour and finish will be different.
The 3M Littmann Cardiology IV with Raspberry Tube and Smoke Finish is a popular choice amongst female clinicians, specialists, and paediatricians. The cheerful colour brings a little more cheeriness to the job, so why not try this one?
What Are the Acoustics Like of the 3M Littmann Cardiology IV with Raspberry Tube and Smoke Finish?
Acoustics are another important aspect of a good stethoscope, so many clinicians will look for this characteristic in their stethoscope first. Fortunately, 3M Littmann stethoscopes are considered as some of the best in acoustic performance; this is no different for the 3M Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope.
The 3M Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope was made with superior acoustics in mind. The stethoscope has a double-sided chestpiece, as well as a dual-lumen tubing design that can eliminate some of the rubbing noises commonly experienced with other designs.
While the double-sided chestpiece of the 3M Littmann Cardiology IV provides better sound transmission for both adult and paediatric patients, the soft-seal ear tips of the stethoscope also contribute to its overall acoustics. The ear tips align perfectly with the clinician’s ears, subsequently forming an acoustic seal that reduces ambient noise! The properly-fitting ear tips also ensure good sound transmission, which is essential during a physical examination.
Is the 3M Littmann Cardiology IV with Raspberry Tube and Smoke Finish a Durable Stethoscope?
The durability is important too when it comes to your stethoscope. Fortunately, the people at 3M Littmann took durability into consideration when creating the 3M Littmann Cardiology IV.
One of the durability features on the 3M Littmann Cardiology IV is the tubing material. The tubing of the 3M Littmann Cardiology IV is made with next-generation tubing, a special compound that does not contain latex of phthalate plasticisers. As a result, patients and clinicians with a sensitivity to this compound will not encounter any difficulties when touching the tubing material.
The durability of the 3M Littmann Cardiology IV also shines through in the design of the chestpiece. This chestpiece is precision machined, ensuring there are no small crevices or edges where dust and debris can pile up. The material used for the chestpiece is also sturdy, ensuring a lengthy lifespan!
How Do I Maintain a 3M Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope?
Most 3M Littmann stethoscopes have similar guidelines where maintenance is concerned. So, if you had a Littmann stethoscope in the past, similar maintenance guidelines will apply.
The chestpiece can be taken apart and reassembled after maintenance; this enables clinicians to give the parts of the chestpiece a more thorough clean. The tubing material is also resistant to skin oils and alcohol, which means clinicians can wipe the tubing down with a simple cloth and an appropriate cleaning solution.
When maintaining your 3M Littmann Cardiology IV, it is important to know that the stethoscope should be submitted to any form of sterilisation process; this may cause damage to the sensitive parts of the stethoscope. The stethoscope should also not be submerged in any type of liquid.
To ensure full maintenance is possible with the 3M Littmann Cardiology IV, the creators of the stethoscope also ensured that the ear tips on the headset can be removed. By removing the ear tips, clinicians can ensure a more thorough clean, but also replace the ear tips when required to do so.
Please note that 3M Littmann uses trademarked ear tips for their stethoscopes. If the ear tips need replacing, please make sure to pick up the right ear tips from the Mentone Educational catalogue.
