Discover How to Buy a Stethoscope Matching Your Profession!
Clinicians already know that no stethoscope is the same, because most stethoscopes are made with certain medical professionals in mind. If you need to buy a stethoscope for your profession, we recommend reading through the following tips! Below, you will find all the criteria you must consider before you buy a stethoscope from Mentone Educational!
When Should I Consider Enhanced Acoustic Performance While Looking to Buy a Stethoscope?
One of the most important things when it comes down to a stethoscope is the acoustic performance; this does not only apply to professionals working in busy hospital environments, but also clinicians working in a doctor surgery.
Naturally, the right acoustic performance becomes even more important for clinicians working in cardiology! At Mentone Educational, you can find classic Littmann stethoscopes that were created specifically for that purpose.
A good example of a classic Littmann stethoscope with tremendous acoustic performance is the 3M Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope. The 3M Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope is ideal when you want to buy a stethoscope with outstanding acoustic performance, but also if you require versatility.
The classic Littmann stethoscope has outstanding acoustics and is specifically designed to provide better audibility for high-frequency sounds. This classic Littmann Stethoscope is also designed to last longer, since it is made with next-generation tubing opposed to natural rubber latex or phthalate plasticizers. Therefore, this is the perfect classic Littmann stethoscope for clinicians who like durability as well as functionality.
When Should I Consider Extra Durability When Looking to Buy an Australian Littmann Stethoscope or Another Branded Stethoscope?
Stethoscopes that are more durable are usually a little heavier as well; this means that clinicians wearing their stethoscope for long periods may encounter some problems finding their perfect stethoscope. However, there are stethoscope brands that combine a lighter weight with durability perfectly.
Clinicians who do not want a stethoscope that is too light could choose an Australian Littmann stethoscope. Most Australian Littmann stethoscopes are made with versatility in mind, so in addition to being durable, Australian Littmann stethoscopes are still comfortable to wear. Even though there are lighter options than the Australian Littmann stethoscope, this brand does offer a golden middle way.
If you do not want to compromise on the light weight of a stethoscope, you could consider one of the ultra-light stethoscopes from the American Diagnostics brand. American Diagnostics provides many lightweight stethoscopes, but these stethoscopes still deliver optimal functionality for clinicians.
When Should I Choose an Electronic Stethoscope Opposed to a Classic Stethoscope?
An electronic stethoscope could be an option for a clinician who only wants the best acoustics on the job. Even though classic stethoscopes could provide the same quality acoustics, some clinicians prefer the convenience of an electronic stethoscope.
Electronic stethoscopes also tend to have advantages for clinicians who work in busy hospital environments, since these clinicians often must deal with a lot of noise coming from busy hospital wards. With an electronic stethoscope, you can use modern technology to counter that noise and amplify body sounds simultaneously!
At Mentone Educational, medical professionals can find countless stethoscopes that will meet their requirements. We have electronic stethoscopes available from renowned and trusted brands; this includes Littmann. So, if you often rely on the classic Littmann stethoscope, but thinking about making the switch to electronic, an electronic Littmann stethoscope should make that transition a little easier.
When Should I Choose a Dedicated Stethoscope for Paediatrics?
For clinicians who solely work in the paediatrics unit, a paediatrics stethoscope may be the advised choice. Even though you can buy stethoscopes that can easily be adjusted from adult to paediatric, having a dedicated stethoscope for paediatrics does come with extra features those other stethoscopes do not have.
A good example of a stethoscope specifically designed for paediatrics is the 3M Littmann Classic II Paediatric Stethoscope. The stethoscope is specifically designed for paediatric patients, featuring a small 3.3 cm diaphragm, high acoustic sensitivity, and a non-chill rim for optimal patient comfort.
Many of our paediatric stethoscopes, including the 3M Littmann Classic II Stethoscope, are available in different colours. Choosing a more cheerful colour such as pearl, red, or raspberry, might look less threatening to paediatric patients. So, it could certainly influence their mood.
Where Can I Get More Advice on Finding the Perfect Stethoscope for My Needs?
The information above is an outline of how to choose your perfect stethoscope, but there are always more things to consider. Clinicians who choose Mentone Educational for their stethoscope needs, can certainly count on our expert advice and recommendations.
