Acquire Superior Acoustic Quality During Paediatric and Adult Assessment with the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope!
Superior acoustics is a quality that should accompany every stethoscope, yet clinicians find that some stethoscopes do not provide the quality they require. Fortunately, there is never a problem with the acoustics with the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope, which is one of the reasons many medical professionals prefer this stethoscope for their job.
Want to learn more about the superior acoustics of the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope? Or interested in some of the other benefits of this stethoscope? Read the information below to learn more.
What Features Promote the Good Acoustics of the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope?
There are several special features that promote the excellent acoustics of the Littmann Cardiology Stethoscope; this ranges from the unique chestpiece to the ear tips. Below, we have explained each of these features in more detail.
The Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope has special tuneable technology; this is provided by a double-sided chestpiece with one adult diaphragm and one paediatric diaphragm. During an examination, clinicians can adjust the pressure on these diaphragms to quickly switch between low and high frequency sounds.
For clinicians who prefer to use an open bell during a physical examination, the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope can be converted from a diaphragm to an open bell; this by removing the paediatric diaphragm of the chestpiece. The open bell on the chestpiece also comes with a special non-chill sleeve; this ensures more patient comfort during an examination.
Like the diaphragms, the open bell also works with tuneable technology. Therefore, clinicians only need to adjust the pressure on the open bell to distinguish between low and high frequency sounds. Naturally, this benefits the overall acoustics of the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope greatly.
The excellent acoustics of the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope are also provided by the soft-seal ear tips on the headset. The soft-seal ear tips align with the ear canals of the medical professional, so they can create an acoustic seal that reduces ambient noise from a busy hospital environment.
Finally, the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope has dual-lumen tubing; this means that two sound paths can be found in the same tube. By combining the pathways into one tube, rubbing noises caused by adjacent tubes can be avoided. Therefore, the acoustics during an examination certainly become better.
What Are the Added Benefits of Tuneable Technology on the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope?
We already mentioned some of the benefits of tuneable technology, more specifically that it allows a little more convenience during the physical examination of patients. However, the tuneable technology of the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope also provides a slight increase in amplitude for lower frequency sounds. Naturally, this could prove extremely useful for clinicians with certain specialisations.
What Features Promote the Durability of the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope?
The Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope has numerous features that add to the durability of the stethoscope. The entire stethoscope is made from durable materials; this includes the so-called next-generation tubing.
Next-generation tubing is a material that is completely free of latex and plasticized phthalates. The material can be flexed repeatedly too; this is also needed, since stethoscopes are constantly flexed when they are used.
When you choose a Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope, the next-generation tubing ensures that the stethoscope can be flexed reliably at least a million times. So, clinicians can use the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope reliably for many years to come.
Why Should I Choose the Littmann Cardiology III Over Other Littmann Stethoscopes?
The Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope is one of the best stethoscope models in the Littmann range. Many parts on the stethoscope are hand-assembled; this means that more durability, precision, and quality is guaranteed!
Another reason why clinicians should choose the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope is the outstanding sound quality, which surpasses most stethoscopes from other well-known manufacturers. In fact, the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope is considered top-of-the-line for low frequency sounds.
When Should I Upgrade My Current Stethoscope to the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope?
An upgrade of a stethoscope is often a personal choice, but most clinicians consider acquiring a newer model when they believe their current stethoscope is not providing them with the required acoustics for daily practice. When you upgrade to the Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope, outstanding acoustic response is guaranteed.
Can I Protect My Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope Against Theft?
Since stethoscopes can be quite an investment, many clinicians want some form of theft protection for their stethoscope. Fortunately, Littmann provides a way to identify stethoscopes easier, more specifically through the serial number that is present on the stethoscopes.
Littmann started adding serial numbers to their stethoscopes as early as 1998. With the serial number, clinicians can identify a specific stethoscope, which could prove useful when they must report the theft of their Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope.
We must mention that Littmann does not keep any record of serial numbers of sold stethoscopes. To ensure you have the serial number of your stethoscope available in case of theft, be sure to take note of your stethoscope’s serial number.
Naturally, there are other ways to protect your stethoscope against theft. One of the best ways is to keep your stethoscope hanging around your neck while at work; this guarantees you do not leave your stethoscope unattended.
Another way to protect your stethoscope against theft is only leaving it in an area that cannot be accessed by patients or visitors. You can also keep your stethoscope in a locked environment if you believe you will not need it for some time.
