Choose the Stethoscope That Holds Itself to the Highest Standard! Choose the 3M Littmann Master Cardiology!
Some stethoscopes stand out from the rest, and this is certainly the case for one of Littman’s finest stethoscopes, the 3M Littmann Master Cardiology. If you want to learn more about this standout from the Littmann collection, be sure to read the detailed information provided by the Littmann brand below.
Does the 3M Littmann Master Cardiology Perform Better Than Other Mechanical Stethoscopes from the Littmann Brand?
Even though all Littmann stethoscopes have a high standard, the 3M Littmann Master Cardiology is considered top-of-the-line amongst their mechanical counterparts. The 3M Littmann Master Cardiology provides unmatched acoustics; this through the presence of tuneable technology as well as the dual-lumen design.
Tuneable technology is one of the wonderful perks clinicians can expect when they choose a 3M Littmann Master Cardiology Stethoscope. The technology provides more versatility to your stethoscope, more specifically by letting you distinguish between low frequency and high frequency sounds without having to turn the chestpiece around.
The chestpiece on the 3M Littmann Master Cardiology Stethoscope is single-sided; this means it contains one diaphragm where the pressure can be adjusted. However, even though the 3M Littmann Master Cardiology Stethoscope has a large diaphragm, it can still be used for the examination of paediatric and neonatal patients thanks to the accompanying special procedures adapter.
When a clinician finds it difficult to get good contact with the normal chestpiece of the 3M Littmann Master Cardiology, they can take out the special procedures adapter, which snaps onto the chestpiece easily. With the adapter, better contact can be achieved, while still receiving the excellent sound transmission and sound quality you would expect from the regular chestpiece.
Another reason why the 3M Littmann Master Cardiology performs better than most mechanical stethoscopes is its dual-lumen design. To avoid some of the rubbing noises that may occur with conventional stethoscopes, Littmann placed both sound paths of the 3M Littmann Master Cardiology in the same tube. By doing so, common rubbing noises experienced during an examination can be eliminated.
How Does the 3M Littmann Master Cardiology Perform on the Level of Comfort?
When you use a stethoscope daily, the overall comfort of that stethoscope becomes extremely important. With the 3M Littmann Master Cardiology, clinicians can expect outstanding comfort through the presence of an adjustable headset and soft-sealing ear tips.
The headset of the 3M Littmann Master Cardiology is based on the anatomy of the head; this means that the headset will fit the head of the clinician perfectly. Of course, Littmann understands that there can be some variations in head size, which is one of the reasons why they incorporated a variable tension on the headset as well.
Clinicians who want to adjust the head size of the 3M Littmann Master Cardiology can do so simply by pulling or pressing the headset. The pulling or pressing motion should occur where the ear tips enter the tubing material; this to prevent problems with some of the delicate mechanisms inside.
What Colours and Designs Could I Obtain for the 3M Littmann Master Cardiology?
Medical professionals like to have a stethoscope that is their own; this means that it stands out from a sea of stethoscopes in a hospital or clinic. Fortunately, there is plenty of room for personalisation with the 3M Littmann Master Cardiology, since this stethoscope comes in various colours and finishes. Each of the stethoscopes also comes with a unique serial number; this can prevent loss or theft.

Does the 3M Littmann Master Cardiology Require Special Maintenance?
Every stethoscope requires some degree of maintenance; this to protect the materials your stethoscope is constructed from, but also to guarantee the hygiene of the stethoscope when used. Fortunately, the maintenance of the 3M Littmann Master Cardiology is quite straightforward.
Before we delve into the maintenance of this stethoscope, it is important to mention that the 3M Littmann Master Cardiology is made from next-generation tubing. This material provides some benefits where maintenance is concerned, since this compound is more resistant to skin oils and alcohol, two compounds commonly found in hospital environments.
To disinfect your 3M Littmann Master Cardiology, we recommend using a wipe containing 70% isopropyl alcohol solution. There are also some things you can do to prevent signs of premature wear and tear; this includes keeping your stethoscope away from extreme heat, cold, solvents, and oils.
Please note that all parts of the diaphragm can be removed from the 3M Littmann Master Cardiology chestpiece; this ensures thorough maintenance. We recommend cleaning the parts with the alcohol wipe we mentioned earlier, or some soapy water. However, please make sure that all the parts of the chestpiece are fully dry before you reassemble them.
Finally, clinicians should be aware that the ear tips on the 3M Littmann Master Cardiology can be removed for a more thorough cleaning. Medical professionals can also acquire additional ear tips if they prefer to replace them regularly. For more information about replacement ear tips, please speak to a Mentone Educational representative.
The 3M Littmann Master Cardiology provides a standard of excellence that is difficult to find with many other stethoscope brands. Not only is this brand on the forefront of latest technological developments, they also keep the comfort of clinicians in mind when designing their stethoscopes!
