What Can You Tell Me About the Chestpiece of the Littmann Master Classic II Veterinary Stethoscope?
The chestpiece of the Littmann Master Classic II Veterinary Stethoscope is a pressure-based system; this means the veterinary stethoscope is equipped with the tuneable technology you will often find in most Littmann stethoscopes.
Tuneable technology delivers many benefits for any medical professional, including veterinarians and veterinary assistants. To distinguish between low and high frequency sounds during an examination, simply adjust the pressure on the chestpiece. If you want to hear low frequency sounds, apply a light pressure on the Littmann Master Classic II Veterinary Stethoscope chestpiece. However, if you require high frequencies, apply a firmer pressure on the chestpiece.
In addition to being wonderfully versatile, the chestpiece of the Littmann Master Classic II Veterinary Stethoscope also has a beautiful ergonomic design. The ergonomic design has more functions than just being aesthetically pleasing, since the streamlined design makes it less likely that debris and dust will get stuck in the chestpiece.
Why Does the Littmann Master Classic II Veterinary Stethoscope Have a Longer Tube than Normal Littmann Stethoscopes?
The longer tube is provided with the safety of the clinician in mind, but also for more convenience. When examining animals, keeping some distance is required for safety reasons. For example, when examining a dog that suddenly snaps because he feels uncomfortable, the veterinarian or veterinary nurse must have sufficient time to remove himself or herself from danger. With the longer tube on this stethoscope, a safer distance can be maintained.
There is another reason for the longer tube on the Littmann Master Classic II Veterinary Stethoscope, more specifically an easier examination of larger animals such as horses and cows. Since such animals have larger bodies, a longer tube may be needed to get to the location where sounds must be obtained from. The longer tube on the Littmann Master Classic II Veterinary Stethoscope accommodates for that.
Will the Headset of the Littmann Master Classic II Veterinary Stethoscope Fit Me?
The size of the headset is a common concern for both veterinarians and veterinary nurses, since many of them are concerned they will pay a lot of money for a good stethoscope, only to find that the headset is uncomfortable, or that it does not fit them properly. Fortunately, this is something that should not be worried about with the Littmann Master Classic II Veterinary Stethoscope.
Our Littmann Master Classic II Veterinary Stethoscope has an anatomically designed headset; this means the entire headset was made to fit the head of any veterinarian or veterinary nurse comfortably. The headset can also be adjusted, more specifically by extending or pressing the tubes near the bend where the ear tips enter the stethoscope tubes.
Each of the Littmann Master Classic Veterinary Stethoscopes has a pair of soft-seal ear tips too. These ear tips are counted among the most comfortable in the stethoscopes industry. They align perfectly with the ear canals, but also create an acoustic seal to reduce any ambient noise! Therefore, veterinarians and veterinary nurses can examine their patients thoroughly, even in some noisier environments.
Can the Littmann Master Classic II Veterinary Stethoscope Be Worn Around the Neck for Longer Periods of Time?
Even though the tube of the Littmann Master Classic II Veterinary is longer than the average stethoscope, the Master Classic II Veterinary Stethoscope is still light enough to hang around the neck.
The Master Classic II Veterinary Stethoscope has a length of 81 centimetres and a weight of only 173 grams. Please note that the weight can vary slightly, since each stethoscope can be just a little lighter or heavier. However, the difference will never be to far from the norm. Therefore, it is no problem for veterinarians and veterinary nurses to wear this stethoscope around the neck.
Is the Littmann Master Classic II Veterinary Stethoscope Durable Enough for Repeated Use in a Busy Veterinary Practice?
Our Littmann Master Classic II Veterinary Stethoscope is designed to withstand repeated use; this goes from the materials used to create a durable chestpiece to the material used for the tubing.
The Littmann Master Classic II Veterinary Stethoscope is made from next-generation tubing. This material is free from latex and phthalate plasticizers, which means the material is allergy free as well as environmentally-friendly.
Next-generation tubing has more benefits than environmentally-friendliness, because this type of tubing is incredibly strong. Still, even though it is strong, it can also be flexed reliable up to a million times; this according to the tests executed by the Littmann brand.
For a busy environment such as a veterinary practice, extra durability is required. Veterinarians and veterinary nurses are also dealing with animals, which could pose a greater risk of damaging the stethoscope. Fortunately, with the durable construction and materials used for the Littmann Master Classic II Veterinary Stethoscope, this is not a problem.
Can I Test the Littmann Master Classic II Veterinary Stethoscope Before I Purchase It for My Veterinary Practice?
All information regarding the Littmann Master Classic II Veterinary Stethoscope is available online, but nothing beats testing the stethoscope yourself. If you prefer to test a veterinary stethoscope before you obtain it, you are more than welcome to visit our state-of-the-art showroom.
