Many clinicians claim you have not experienced remarkable acoustics until you upgrade to a Littmann stethoscope.

Want to learn more about Littmann and why you should upgrade to the latest Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope? Learn more by reading the information provided by Mentone Educational below.
What Special Benefits Does the Chestpiece of the Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope Provide?
The chestpiece of the 3M Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope is designed for optimal auscultation as well as convenience, making this stethoscope a winner for many clinicians.
One of the features you will notice immediately with the Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope is the single-piece diaphragm. Do not let the name of the diaphragm deceive you though, because this stethoscope comes with a tuneable diaphragm on either side.
The chestpiece of the Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope is divided into three parts. There is the adult diaphragm for adult examinations, the paediatric diaphragm for paediatric examinations, and the open bell for clinicians who like to get their diagnosis in the traditional manner. Of course, each of these parts has the tuneable technology Littmann is known for.
Tuneable technology enables clinicians to get their diagnosis easier, since no parts must be changed to hear both low and high frequency sounds. Whether you are using the large diaphragm, small diaphragm, or the open bell, an adjustment in pressure will help the clinician hear the low or high frequency sounds required for a diagnosis.
The chestpiece of the Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope has been precision-machined. Not only does this add to the durability of the chestpiece itself, it also creates an aesthetically-pleasing and stylish shape.
Finally, the unique design of the chestpiece provides some benefits where maintenance is concerned. The single-piece design of the Littmann Cardiology IV chestpiece allows for easier maintenance, but its streamlined design also provides added protection against dust and debris!
What Special Benefits Does the Tubing of the Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope Provide?
Even the tubing used in the Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope provides numerous benefits for clinicians. The tubing used for the Littmann Cardiology IV is called next-generation tubing; this is a compound free of latex and plasticized phthalates.
Next-generation tubing adds more durability to this new release from the Littmann brand. Since the compound does not contain latex or other materials that could affect the lifespan of the stethoscope, the durability of the Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope is guaranteed.
Another benefit of next-generation tubing is that the compound combines strength with flexibility. Tests executed by Littmann have proven that the tubing material can be flexed reliably up to a million times; this makes the stethoscope a recommended choice for clinicians who use their stethoscope often.
With next-generation tubing also comes easier maintenance and more resistance to common types of damage that could be encountered in a hospital environment; this includes contact with skin oils and alcohol. This once again contributes to the overall durability of this remarkable stethoscope.
What Special Benefits Does the Headset of the Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope Provide?
The headset of the Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope provides some clear benefits for various medical professionals. Firstly, the headset has an anatomical design, which means that the headset is made to comfortably fit the clinician as well as facilitate better auscultation by creating a unique acoustic seal.
Clinicians who find it hard to get a stethoscope for their head size will not have much problems with the Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope either, since the headset can easily be adjusted to the head size of the clinician thanks to the next generation tubing.
To increase the size of the headset, simply pull each tube gently outwards; this by holding each of the tubes where the ear tips enter the tubing material. The compound can be stretched until the desired head size is acquired.
Medical professionals using the Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope can also decrease the head size; this by holding the tubes into one hand and pressing the headset until the desired head size is achieved.
Each headset is also supplied with the characteristic soft-seal ear tips of the Littmann brand. The ear tips are designed to align with the ear canals of the user; this means the ear tips should be pointing forward before they are inserted into the ears.
Combined with the anatomically-designed headset, the Littmann ear tips provide the medical professional with an added acoustic seal. The acoustic seal allows better sound transmission, but also reduces any ambient noises that can be heard in a hospital or other busy medical environment.
The ability to adjust the headset and the soft-seal ear tubes provide a personalisation of a stethoscope that ensures optimal comfort and functionality for every medical professional. Therefore, the Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope should be a serious consideration for any medical professional working in a clinic or hospital environment.
Does the Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope Have a Serial Number?
Littmann started added serial numbers to most of their stethoscopes in 1998, so clinicians can expect their Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope to have a serial number. Having such a serial number can prove useful for various situations; this includes theft.
Please note that Littmann does not maintain a record with stethoscope serial numbers and their respective owners. Therefore, keep record of your serial number to ensure you have the appropriate information in case of theft.
