What Is the Difference Between the 3M Littmann Cardiology III and Previous Littmann Stethoscope Models?
With the 3M Littmann Cardiology III, Littmann presents a new stethoscope design as well as new technology. The numerous features that have been added to the 3M Littmann Cardiology III could make examinations easier and more accurate, so many medical professionals have already made the switch to the series III from Littmann.
What Is Different About the Chestpiece of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III?
The chestpiece of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III is double-sided. It contains a specialist diaphragm at either side; this includes a dedicated diaphragm for paediatric patients and a dedicated diaphragm for adult patients. Therefore, clinicians can use the 3M Littmann Cardiology III in many fields of medicine.
We must also mention that the 3M Littmann Cardiology III still contains an open bell. The open bell can be obtained by transforming the paediatric diaphragm. First, remove the diaphragm from the chestpiece and replace it with the non-chill rim that accompanies the stethoscope.
The chestpiece of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III is precision-machined and has a different shape from the usual chestpiece. For the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope, Littmann has chosen a less angular and more streamlined shape; this eliminates dust and debris getting stuck in the crevices of the chestpiece.
There are also some differences on the diaphragm of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III. Instead of using a separate diaphragm and rim design, Littmann choose a single-piece diaphragm; this makes it a lot easier to attach and remove the diaphragm from the chestpiece. The smooth unbroken surface of the diaphragm also makes it easier to clean.
To ensure you are operating with the correct diaphragm, Littmann included an open side indicator on the stem of the stethoscope. By looking at the stem, you can immediately detect which side is in operation.
What Is Different About the Tubing of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III?
The tubing of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III is made from a special compound called next-generation tubing. The compound is completely free of latex and comes with benefits that add to the durability and longevity of your stethoscope.
Next-generation tubing is a strong material that has a lot of flexibility, which makes it the perfect material for the tubing of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III. Next-generation tubing has more benefits though; this includes a higher resistance to skin oils and alcohol.
Are the Acoustics of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III Better Than Previous Models?
Littmann has done many updates on the 3M Littmann Cardiology III compared to previous models; this includes the addition of tuneable technology. Tuneable technology has become a standard in the world of stethoscopes, since it enables clinicians to quickly distinguish between low and high frequency sounds.
The acoustics of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III are improved even further with soft-sealing ear tips. The ear tips are designed to fit in the ear canals of the clinician, but also to create an acoustic seal. The acoustic seal has a specific purpose. On one hand, it reduces any ambient noise that can be heard in a hospital environment. On the other hand, it makes sound transmission a little better.
How Is a 3M Littmann Cardiology III Maintained?
To maintain the 3M Littmann Cardiology III, all the is needed is a wipe with 70% isopropyl alcohol solution. Even though other alcohol wipes can be used, isopropyl wipes are recommended for the maintenance of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III by the Littmann brand.
Medical professionals can easily take the chestpiece of the stethoscope apart; this makes it easier to clean all the parts thoroughly. They can also remove the ear tips from the headset, which enables a more thorough clean.
When putting the chestpiece of the 3M Littmann Cardiology III back together, please make sure that all the parts you have cleaned are completely dry. Also, ensure there are no remnants of any cleaning solution or soap you have used to clean the parts.
The same applies to reassembling the headset. Check if all the parts are dry and free of cleaning solution. Then, add the ear tips to the headset by putting them on the ribbed ends of the ear tubes.
How Can I Protect My 3M Littmann Cardiology III Against Premature Wear and Tear?
To ensure you get the maximum from the 3M Littmann Cardiology III, it is recommended to store your stethoscope in a safe and dry place. It is advised to keep your stethoscope away from extreme temperatures, as well as most solvents and oils.
