Discover How a Stethoscope Can Be Stylish with the Littmann Master Cardiology in Smoke!
We all have an idea of how a stethoscope should look like, but Littmann proves that a stethoscope can be stylish with the Littmann Master Cardiology in smoke finish! Of course, this stethoscope is not only stylish, since the stethoscope is considered as top-of-the-line by many medical professionals.
Want to discover how the Littmann Master Cardiology could help you on the job? Read our information below to find out.
How Are the Acoustics of the Littmann Master Cardiology Stethoscope in Smoke Finish?
The Littmann Master Cardiology Stethoscope in smoke finish provides some superior acoustics. The chestpiece on the stethoscope is single-sided but comes with tuneable technology to provide versatility during physical examinations.
Tuneable technology is a feature many clinicians search for nowadays, since this could save medical professionals quite some time during any examination. Instead of having to turn or alter the chestpiece to listen to sounds of different frequencies, the clinician only has to adjust the pressure on the same chestpiece to distinguish between low and high frequency sounds.
The outstanding acoustics of the Littmann Master Cardiology in smoke finish also benefit from the presence of the dual-lumen design. Instead of putting the sound paths into two separate tubes, Littmann chose to implement both sound paths in one tube. By doing this, the stethoscope can limit some of the rubbing noises that are commonly experienced with stethoscopes during examinations.
The dual-lumen design of the Littmann Master Cardiology does more than just eliminate rubbing noises, since this design also guarantees optimal sound transmission and sound insulation; this makes the Littmann Master Cardiology in smoke finish the perfect choice for medical professionals working in clinics and hospitals.
A Littmann Master Cardiology Stethoscope also has an anatomically-designed headset. While this anatomically-designed headset provides more comfort to medical professionals, it also makes sound transmission during physical examinations better.
At the end of the headset, medical professionals will also find the characteristic soft-sealing ear tips from the Littmann brand. The ear tips are anatomically aligned; this means they match the ear canals of the clinician wearing the stethoscope. By ensuring a perfect fit, Littmann can reduce the possibility of sound leaks and create an acoustic seal that eliminates some ambient noise.
How Strong Is the Littmann Master Cardiology Stethoscope in Smoke Finish?
Clinicians can count on outstanding durability with the Littmann Master Cardiology; this ranges from the chestpiece to the tubing material!
The chestpiece of the Littmann Master Cardiology stethoscope is made from handcrafted stainless steel. The handcrafted quality of the chestpiece adds durability to the construction of the stethoscope, but also eliminates some of the problems that can be experienced with mass-produced stainless steel.
For the tubing of the Littmann Master Cardiology stethoscope, Littmann chose their characteristic next-generation tubing. The compound has proven to be more resistant against skin oils and alcohol, which could prove useful in many hospital environments. Next-generation tubing can be flexed reliably too, since the material can retain its original shape even after repeated flexing.
Can I Examine Paediatric and Neonatal Patients with the Littmann Master Cardiology Stethoscope?
Since the chestpiece of the Littmann Master Cardiology Stethoscope is quite large, many clinicians wonder if the stethoscope is still suitable for the physical examination of paediatric and neonatal patients. The Littmann Master Cardiology Stethoscope can be used for smaller patients; this with the help of the special procedures adapter that comes with the stethoscope.
The special procedures adapter that accompanies the Littmann Master Cardiology Stethoscope can easily be attached to the chestpiece. The use of the special procedures adapter is not only recommended for paediatric and neonatal patients, but also other examinations where it is difficult to get a good surface contact with an adult-sized chestpiece.
Please note that the sound intensity and sound quality will remain the same, even if you use the special procedures adapter during the examination. Therefore, clinicians can choose the Littmann Master Cardiology Stethoscope for adult patients as well as neonatal and paediatric patients.
Why Should I Choose the Littmann Master Cardiology Over Other Littmann Stethoscopes?
Since Littmann creates some of the best stethoscopes in the world, many medical professionals wonder why they should invest in the Littmann Master Cardiology. The answer is simple though, because the Littmann Master Cardiology is considered as the best of the Littmann stethoscope brand.
We must mention that the Littmann Master Cardiology is hand-assembled for the most part; this ensures superior quality from manufacturer to medical professional. The materials used in the Littmann Master Cardiology also guarantee better sound transmission and even provide specialist features for low-frequency sound ranges.
When Should I Upgrade My Existing Stethoscope to the Littmann Master Stethoscope?
Most clinicians consider upgrading their existing stethoscope to the Littmann Master Stethoscope when they believe they cannot detect everything they should hear during a physical examination. Since the Littmann Master Stethoscope provides the best acoustic response, an upgrade to this stethoscope is straightforward.
Is There a Way to Identify My Stethoscope?
Since 1998, Littmann has started to put a serial number on most of their stethoscope models. Subsequently, clinicians can identify their stethoscope by looking at the serial number.
The serial number of your stethoscope can be found on the chestpiece; this number will be engraved. Engraving ensures that the serial number does not fade over time and can be determined easily.
Serial numbers on stethoscopes provide clinicians with some degree of protection against the theft of their stethoscope. Unfortunately, Littmann does not maintain records of these serial numbers, so clinicians should keep their stethoscope documentation to keep track of the serial number and other identifying markers on the stethoscope.
The Littmann Master Cardiology is the obvious choice for many clinicians; this includes cardiologists, but also emergency nurses, general practitioners, paediatricians, and other medical professionals demanding outstanding acoustics on the job.
