Learn Everything You Need to Know About Using the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope
The 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope is one of the most popular stethoscopes available today, so many clinicians consider adding the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope to their working environment for their daily practice. If you want to learn more about the use of this stethoscope, please read the information provided by Mentone Educational below.
How Do I Change the Frequencies on the Tuneable Diaphragm of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope?
To adjust the frequency on your new 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope, it is important to learn more about the various parts of the chestpiece first. The chestpiece consists of two sides, one to examine adult patients and one to examine paediatric patients. Naturally, this means that each side has a different size.
The Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope also has an open bell; this is often useful for clinicians who prefer to use the traditional examination method with their stethoscope. To acquire the open bell, simply remove the paediatric diaphragm from the stethoscope.
Clinicians can easily distinguish between high and low frequency sounds by adjusting the pressure on the respective diaphragm; for example, a low pressure for low frequency sounds and a firmer pressure for high frequency sounds. The same method applies for the open bell, which also comes with a non-chill bell sleeve for optimal patient comfort.
How Do I Adjust the Headset of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope to Fit Me Comfortable?
One of the benefits of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope is the adjustable headset, which is made to fit any head size. While on the job, clinicians can easily adjust the headset, ensuring optimal comfort as well as improved acoustics.
To adjust the headset on your new Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope, please refer to the ear tips on the headset first. The ear tips are set to align with the ear canals, so they should always point in a forward direction when they are inserted into the ears.
Clinicians can adjust the tension on the headset. To alter the tension of the headset, position each ear tube at the bend near the ear tips. Then, pull them apart carefully until the desired extension for your head size is reached.
Medical professionals can also reduce the tension on the headset. To reduce the tension, grab the headset of the stethoscope with one hand, more specifically in the place where the ear tubes go into the tubing material. Squeeze the headset until the desired tension is reached for your head size.
To ensure full maintenance for the headset, or to replace the ear tips after a couple of years, clinicians can remove the ear tips from the headset of this stethoscope. Simply remove the ear tips by pulling them firmly.
How to Maintain the Chestpiece of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope?
The unique design of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope makes it easier for clinicians to maintain their stethoscope. To clean the chestpiece of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope, medical professionals should remove the diaphragm. To remove the diaphragm, make sure the diaphragm is placed facing upwards. Then, place your thumbs and index fingers of both hands on either side of the rim and roll the rim from the edge of the chestpiece.
Once the diaphragm is removed from the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope, you can clean the parts with some soapy water or wipe them off with some alcohol. When the parts are cleaned, please make sure all the parts are completely dry before reassembling the chestpiece.
Please note that some substances should be avoided when maintaining the chestpiece of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope. Littmann recommends avoiding solvents and oils. The chestpiece should also never be submerged in any liquid.
How Do I Assemble and Replace the Tuneable Diaphragm?
To ensure easy assembly of the tuneable diaphragm on the adult side, Littmann recommends using a small amount of talcum powder on the inside surface of the flexible edge of the adult diaphragm. The talcum powder will make the assembly of this part easier, but also provide a quiet switch between low and high frequency sounds. To remove any excess talcum powder from the chestpiece, simply snap the diaphragm with your fingers.
After snapping the diaphragm, insert the flexible side of the diaphragm into the rim groove. To ensure the right side gets inserted, make sure the rim is positioned above the legible side of the stethoscope diaphragm.
Clinicians should also examine the rim during the assembly of the tuneable diaphragm. Ensure that the flexible side of the rim is engaged properly inside the rim. If not, clinicians can make the required adjustments by pinching the outer edge of the rim between the thumb and the fingers.
After this process is completed, clinicians can attach the rim and diaphragm to the chestpiece by engaging the groove of the rim. Then, hold the rim and diaphragm in place with the thumbs and roll the rim over the chestpiece edge. Roll the rim around on the chestpiece with the thumbs, but make sure to do it in the opposite direction of the chestpiece.
Once you have connected the rim and diaphragm to the chestpiece, it is a good idea to check the chestpiece and connected diaphragm for any inconsistencies. If any inconsistencies can be found, you can still make some small adjustments by slightly pulling and rolling the rim away from the diaphragm; this will allow the adult diaphragm to slip into the right position.
