The Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope provides outstanding acoustics, durability, and can be used on both adult and paediatric patients. Curious about this stethoscope and want to learn more? Read the information about the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope below.
Why Is the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope One of the Most Versatile Stethoscopes on the Market Today?
Versatility requires many features, but fortunately you can count on such features with the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope. One of these features is the double-sided chestpiece, which contains a small diaphragm for paediatric patients on one side and a larger diaphragm for adult patients on the other.
The double-sided chestpiece was selected for the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope for a good reason. Firstly, the double-sided chestpiece allows for quicker diagnosis, since clinicians do not have to change their chestpiece between examinations of adult patients and paediatric patients. The chestpiece also contains the typical tuneable technology from 3M Littmann, which allows easier transition between high and low frequency sounds.
Finally, the smaller side of the chestpiece can be transformed into an open bell. To get the open bell, clinicians can easily remove the small diaphragm. The diaphragm can be reattached afterwards and protect the open bell against dust and debris.
How Are the Acoustics of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope?
Cardiology stethoscopes demand impeccable acoustics, so this is exactly what you can expect from the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope. The entire stethoscope is designed to provide optimal acoustics for clinicians, so medical professionals can expect a lot of features that contribute to better acoustics.
One of the features that clinicians can expect from the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope is the tuneable diaphragm we mentioned earlier, which does not only provide versatility, but also better acoustics. By adjusting the pressure, clinicians can easily hear low and high frequency sounds. Therefore, this is the first part of the stethoscope that contributes to superior acoustics.
The 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope is made with dual-lumen design; this means that two sound paths run through the same tube. By letting the sound paths run through the same tube, Littmann can avoid some of the rubbing noises experienced with stethoscopes that have two tubes instead of one. So, the dual-lumen design is certainly another feature that provides better acoustics.
Finally, the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope also comes with soft-seal ear tips. The ear tips provide an acoustic barrier when the stethoscope is used, reducing any ambient noise coming from the nearby environment. So, the seal makes the acoustics better, but it also makes the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope extremely suitable for busy hospital environments.
What Material Is Used for the Tubing of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope?
The material used for the tubing can be a concern for many clinicians, since some tubing materials may contain latex or plasticized phthalates. Either of these two materials could cause allergic reactions in both patients and the clinician using the stethoscope, so manufacturers try to avoid these materials for stethoscope tubing.
All latest stethoscopes from the Littmann brand are made with a tubing material called next-generation tubing. Next-generation tubing has many benefits, because it directly contributes to the durability of the stethoscope.
Next-generation tubing is a material that does not contain any latex or plasticized phthalates; this makes the stethoscope suitable for anyone with sensitivity to latex or plasticized phthalates. Next-generation tubing is also quite resistant to skin oils and alcohol, actively contributing to the durability of the stethoscope.
Another benefit of next-generation tubing is that the material can be flexed reliably. To guarantee maximum durability where flexing is concerned, Littmann has tested the next-generation tubing. Next-generation tubing can be flexed up to a million times reliably, so even with repeated flexing, the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope will stay as strong as the day you bought it.
What Is the Recommended Head Size for the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope?
One of the additional benefits of the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope is that the stethoscope matches the head size of any clinician. Since the headset has an anatomical design and can be adjusted, clinicians can find the perfect fit for their head size, accompanied by the perfect acoustic seal.
Which Medical Professionals Use the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope Most Often?
There are various medical professionals who use the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope on the job. Even though the stethoscope is designed for cardiologists, other specialists such as paediatricians, critical care nurses, general practitioners, medical students, and respiratory specialists use this stethoscope frequently too. Therefore, no matter what medical field you work in, the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope should always be considered.
How Do I Maintain the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope?
Clinicians can easily clean the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope with some alcohol or soapy water. However, Littmann recommends avoiding contact between the stethoscope and extreme heat, cold, solvents, and oils.
For the maintenance of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope, clinicians can remove the ear tubs; this provides clinicians with the ability to clean their stethoscope more thoroughly. However, it is advised never to fully submerge the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope in liquid, nor should the stethoscope undergo a steam sterilization process.
