Paediatric

With world leading brands such as Littmann, Liberty, American Diagnostics and ALP K2 Mentone Educational is Australia's leading provider of Paediatric (Pediatric) Stethoscopes for both training and clinicians. To achieve a proper diagnosis on young children and infants, a paediatric stethoscope is essential. While the working of the stethoscope is identical to that of an adult stethoscope, the smaller size of the chestpiece diaphragm and bell means that you can focus the auscultation in exactly the right area.

Furthermore, the advances in technology that have made it possible to get a non-chill stethoscope will be advantageous, as small children may not be reasoned with quite as easily as adults. Lastly, the fact that your stethoscope can be delivered in a variety of colours means that it will look less threatening, and may be a way of putting a small child at easy in advance of the auscultation.

Paediatric stethoscopes at Mentone Educational

At Mentone Educational, we stock a range of 3M Littman paediatric stethoscopes and infant stethoscopes for you to choose from. See below for a quick overview of the main features of both types of stethoscope.

The 3M Littman Classic Paediatric stethoscope

  • Dual-sided chestpiece with small 3.3cm diaphragm is ideal for paediatric patients.
  • Versatile chestpiece design provides high acoustic sensitivity with both a floating diaphragm and open bell.
  • The 3M Littmann Classic II Paediatric Stethoscope is based on the proven design of Littmann Classic stethoscopes. It’s a dependable, hard-working clinical tool for physical assessment, monitoring, and diagnosis of smaller patients.
  • Headset tension is easily adjusted for head size and comfort by squeezing together or pulling apart the ear tubes.
  • Snap-tight, soft-sealing eartips conform to individual ears for an excellent acoustic seal and comfortable fit. Eartips snap firmly onto the ends of the ear tubes and, for safety, require a significant effort to remove.
  • Resilient next-generation tubing retains its shape and flexibility even after folding tightly into a pocket. It provides longer stethoscope life due to improved resistance to skin oils and alcohol, and is less likely to pick up stains.
  • Next-generation tubing is not made with natural rubber latex, a benefit to sensitive medical professionals and their patients. And, to play its part in the protection of human health and the environment, the next-generation tubing does not contain phthalate plasticizers.
  • The Classic II Paediatric stethoscope comes complete with large soft-sealing eartips, large firm eartips, and instructions.

Maintenance of your paediatric stethoscope

Manufacturers recommend that stethoscopes are cleaned between patients with a 70% isopropyl alcohol solution or wipe. To prolong the life of your stethoscope and maintain optimal performance, it is recommended that you clean your whole stethoscope regularly, especially if you carry it around in a pocket where it may pick up lint or small particles of dust and dirt easily.

General cleaning tips:

  • If your stethoscope needs to be disinfected, wipe with a 70% isopropyl alcohol solution.
  • Do not immerse your stethoscope in any liquid, or subject it to any sterilization process.
  • Keep your stethoscope away from extreme heat, cold, solvents and oils.
  • Tunable diaphragms can be removed from the chestpiece and their surfaces wiped with alcohol or soapy water. Dry all parts thoroughly before reassembly.
  • Eartips can be removed from the ear tubes for thorough cleaning. For safety, snap eartips firmly back onto the ribbed ends of the ear tubes.
  • To clean the chestpiece:  With the diaphragm side up, push the rim at one point with both thumbs and roll the rim off the edge of the chestpiece. Remove the diaphragm from the rim and clean parts in soapy water or wipe with alcohol. Wipe chestpiece surfaces with alcohol or soapy water. Dry all parts and surfaces thoroughly before reassembly
