Learn More About the 3M Littmann Classic II Infant Stethoscope and Its Benefits
Many paediatricians and paediatric nurses use the 3M Littmann Classic II Infant Stethoscope on the job. The reasons why are not hard to find, because this paediatric stethoscope is accompanied by numerous benefits. If you wish to learn more about the benefits of the 3M Littmann Classic II Infant Stethoscope, do not hesitate to read the information provided by our Mentone Educational team.
When you are treating babes or infants, or if you are learning to, you really do want the best. And when it comes to stethoscopes, there are none better than those made by 3M Littman. Dr David Littmann revolutionised the stethoscope during his time at Harvard University in the 1960s, and since then Littmann products have been the industry standard. Since the very beginning, Littmann stethoscopes have been leading the industry with innovations and technological advances that have given their instruments a reputation for durability, flexibility and quality. The 3M Littmann Classic II Infant Stethoscope is a fine example of that. From the soft-sealing eartips and the easily adjusted headset to the next generation tubing, down to the dual-sided and acoustically sensitive chestpiece, if you are using a Littman stethoscope you know you are using something that is trusted by millions of medical professionals and medical students throughout the world.
What Is the First Benefit of the 3M Littmann Classic II Infant Stethoscope?
Since the 3M Littmann Classic II Infant Stethoscope is specifically designed for infant patients, it is certainly no surprise that this fact shines through in the design of the stethoscope. One such a design feature is the dual-sided chestpiece, providing high acoustic sensitivity for both low and high frequency sounds.
The outstanding auscultation provided by the chestpiece of the 3M Littmann Classic II Infant Stethoscope makes the stethoscope a suitable choice to examine and study the heart, lungs, and other body sounds of neonatal and paediatric patients.
With a chestpiece measuring a convenient 2.7 centimetres, and countless acoustic benefits coming from the stethoscope design, the 3M Littmann Classic II Infant Stethoscope is undoubtedly the recommended choice for paediatricians and paediatric nurses.
What Is the Second Benefit of the 3M Littmann Classic II Infant Stethoscope?
The 3M Littmann Classic II Infant Stethoscope also has a headset that is specifically designed for paediatricians and paediatric nurses. The headset is made to fit everyone comfortably, so the anatomically designed headset can be adjusted in size if required by the clinician.
To increase or decrease the size of the headset, simply squeeze or pull apart the ear tubes on the stethoscope; this will either shrink or expand the headset. The size of the headset can be adjusted frequently too; this due to the special next-generation compound that is used for the tubing material.
What Is the Third Benefit of the 3M Littmann Classic II Infant Stethoscope?
The third benefit of the 3M Littmann Classic II Infant Stethoscope is durability. There are several things that contribute to the durability of this stethoscope; this includes the next-generation tubing material.
Next-generation tubing is a strong yet flexible material. The compound increases the lifespan of the 3M Littmann Classic II Infant Stethoscope, since the material is more resistant to certain materials commonly found in hospital environments; this includes alcohol and skin oil. Due to its additional resistance, the 3M Littmann Classic II Infant Stethoscope is also less likely to pick up stains during its use.
Contrary to some paediatric stethoscopes out there, the 3M Littmann Classic II Infant Stethoscope does not contain latex or phthalate plasticisers. Naturally; this makes the stethoscope better for the environment, but also a recommended choice for patients and clinicians who suffer from a latex allergy.
Next-generation compound is also a material that can be flexed reliably; this is a must for stethoscopes since many clinicians like to fold their stethoscope in their pocket. According to Littmann, their stethoscope can be flexed reliably up to a million times.
Is black tube colour still a popular choice?
Today’s modern hospitals, especially children’s wards are full of colour. Given that, and the large range of colours the available to those buying the 3M Littmann Classic II Infant Stethoscope, the question has to be asked about whether there is still a place for traditional black and silver stethoscopes among today’s medical professionals and medical students. It may come as a surprise to many to discover that the answer is ‘yes’. If worldwide popularity and sales figures are anything to go by, there are still a lot of medical practitioners keen to stick with the original. Whether it’s the tradition, or growing up seeing doctors with black stethoscopes, or maybe the air of professionalism it promotes, black tubing is still a big seller. Therefore, it’s important that best sellers are available when you want them. At Mentone Educational we guarantee our customers that when they want a popular product, we will have it in stock for them. We have a whole dedicated team focussed on ensuring strong stock levels of all our popular products.

What is next generation tubing and how does it improve a stethoscope?
The innovation and technological excellence we have come to expect from the Littmann Classic stethoscope range is clear to see with the next generation tubing of the 3M Littmann Classic II Infant Stethoscope. Next generation tubing is resilient, and will hold its shape and flexibility even after it has been folded in your pocket. It lasts longer than other tubing, given its improved resistance to skin oils and alcohol, and it is less likely to pick up stains of any kind. It is also not made of natural latex, which can cause allergies in a lot of people. Using next generation tubing means the Littmann Classic II is also doing its bit for the environment, as it doesn’t contain phthalate plasticisers.
What are the dual-sided chestpiece benefits?
The 3M Littmann Classic II Infant Stethoscope’s dual-sided chestpiece includes a tiny 2.7cm diaphragm, which is perfect for treating babies or infants. The chestpiece is also versatile, providing high acoustic sensitivity with both a floating diaphragm and an open bell. At the other end, the soft-sealing eartips provide an excellent acoustic seal and comfortable fit, and, importantly, are difficult to remove. The eartubes of the 3M Littmann Classic II Infant Stethoscope are angled, and they align with the ear canals for greater comfort and sensitivity. And the non-chill rim and diaphragm is always a welcome innovation for doctors, nurses and specialists dealing with small children.
