General Physical Assessment and Diagnosis

Achieve the Best Results with the 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope!

The 3M Littmann Classic III is one of the favourite stethoscopes of many medical professionals, but why is this stethoscope so beloved? Clinicians who want to determine if an upgrade to the 3M Littmann Classic III stethoscope could be right for them should certainly read the information below, which provides them with a complete overview of 3M Littmann Classic III features and benefits.

What Makes the Chestpiece of the 3M Littmann Classic III Superior to Other Brands?

Each 3M Littmann Classic III is equipped with a double-sided chestpiece. The double-sided chestpiece has numerous benefits, especially where versatility is concerned.

The double-sided chestpiece of the 3M Littmann Classic III contains a paediatric and an adult diaphragm; this means examinations are possible on both adult and paediatric patients. Both diaphragms have tuneable technology too, an advanced feature that is loved amongst medical professionals.

With tuneable technology, clinicians can easily listen to low and high frequency sounds. To listen to low frequency sounds, apply a light pressure to the chestpiece and ensure good contact with the patient. If you wish to hear high frequency sounds, apply a firmer pressure on the chestpiece.

The tuneable diaphragm on the paediatric side is not only suitable for paediatric patients, it is also an option for patients where auscultation is not that evident. It can be used on patients who are thin, around bandages, and even carotid assessment.

In addition to tuneable technology, the chestpiece of the 3M Littmann Classic III is made from precision-machined stainless steel. Littmann has also ensured a less angular design for the chestpiece, which makes it less likely for dirt and debris to get lodged in the chestpiece after repeated use.

Is There an Open Bell on the 3M Littmann Classic III?

There is an open bell on the 3M Littmann Classic III, which is situated on the paediatric side of the chestpiece. The paediatric side of the chestpiece can be converted into the open bell by removing the single-piece diaphragm and then replacing it by a non-chill rim.

The overall design of the chestpiece ensures that the open bell is no longer susceptible to dirt and debris. Since the open bell is covered by the diaphragm, small particles can no longer reach the open bell underneath. Naturally, this provides many benefits for the overall care and maintenance of the stethoscope.

What Tubing Is Used for the 3M Littmann Classic III?

Littmann uses its own compound for the tubing of the 3M Littmann Classic III; this compound is referred to as next-generation tubing. The compound is known for its strength and flexibility, enabling clinicians to reliably flex their stethoscope when required.

Flexibility is not the only benefit clinicians can expect from the tubing material on the 3M Littmann Classic III, since the compound has a high resistance against skin oils and alcohol. Naturally, these are things commonly found in a hospital environment. While other materials would be affected by them, the next-generation tubing of the 3M Littmann Classic III provides additional protection and a high resistance to stains.

We must also mention that the tubing of the 3M Littmann Classic III is completely free of latex and phthalate plasticizers; this makes next-generation tubing environmentally-friendly, but also makes it safer! Some medical professionals and patients have a sensitivity or even an allergy for latex, so avoiding this compound in stethoscope tubing is certainly a necessity.

What Can You Tell Me About the Headset of the 3M Littmann Classic III?

The 3M Littmann Classic III has an outstanding headset too. The headset features an anatomical design, which aligns perfectly with the head shape of the medical professional. Of course, not every clinician’s headset is the same, so Littmann ensured that the tension of the headset could be adjusted.

To adjust the tension on the headset, medical professionals can pull or press the tubes on the headset. When pressing, the tension on the headset is increased, subsequently making the headset smaller. When pulled, the tension on the headset decreases, providing the clinician with a bigger headset.

The headset of the 3M Littmann Classic III is also equipped with soft-sealing ear tips. These ear tips are typically used for Littmann headsets, because they provide many benefits for acoustics as well as comfort.

Soft-sealing ear tips on the headset of the 3M Littmann Classic III provide a perfect acoustic seal. The acoustic seal ensures good sound transmission, ensuring clinicians can hear everything they must hear during a physical examination. It also reduces some of the ambient noise that could be around during an examination. Since ambient noise is not the uncommon in a doctor surgery or clinic, the acoustic seal could certainly make diagnosis easier.

Which Clinicians Should Choose the 3M Littmann Classic III?

The Littmann Classic III is an excellent stethoscope for general practitioners, nurses, and medical students. It provides them with the acoustics they require on the job, but also countless comfort features that make the stethoscope comfortable with regular use.

We must mention that specialists should consider one of the stethoscopes from the Littmann Cardiology range instead. Even though the Littmann Classic III has great acoustics, it does not provide the ability to listen for murmurs and other delicate sounds that can only be detected with a specialist stethoscope. Still, the 3M Littmann Classic III remains an outstanding choice for general practitioners, nurses, and students.

Conclusion

The 3M Littmann Classic III Stethoscope is considered as a standard for many medical professionals. Even though the acoustics are different from stethoscopes in the Littmann cardiology range, the 3M Littmann Classic III still provides good acoustics for an affordable price.

Want to compare the Littmann Classic III with a stethoscope from the cardiology range? Or do you want a demonstration of the 3M Littmann Classic III? Feel free to stop by at the showroom of Mentone Educational, where you can get familiar with the various stethoscopes available. Our team can also provide you with a detailed demonstration before you make your purchase.
