3M Littmann Stethoscope for high accuracy of diagnosis

Here we will try to dissect and review each of the categories available so that you make the right decision.

.

1) Lightweight Stethoscopes

.

.

3M™ Littmann® Lightweight and Select Stethoscopes are ideal for taking blood pressure readings and making a limited patient assessment. They're entry-level models that provide essential features such as tunable diaphragms. One of Littmann’s simplest models which are especially useful for training and learning. It has a single sided chestpiece with a tunable dual-frequency diaphragm, as it is usual in Littmann. Having a plastic chestpiece, its durability is limited though.

2) Classic III Stethoscopes

.

.

With the Littmann Classic III, you will, in short, be able to listen to any sound you wish grade I murmur, S3 and S4 noises, among others. This stethoscope comes with excellent acoustics thanks to the development and the experience Littmann has built up over the several decades they have been manufacturing stethoscopes. However, is their acoustic as great as in the Cardiology series models? No, any cardiologist or specialist with a trained ear will be able to perceive the difference. It's acoustic, although fair, is not as excellent as in other superior models. It doesn’t have the same clarity, or amplification, or ability to detect details and nuances.

3) Classic II Pediatric & Infant Stethoscope

.

.

The Littmann Classic II™ Pediatric, as well as the Classic II™ Infant, are versions with smaller chestpieces of the Classic II™ Stethoscope. Therefore, they have the same features with the exception of the diameter of its chestpieces: 1 inch / 1.31 inches (the Pediatric) and 0.75 inch /1.06 inches (the Infant version). Due to this, the Pediatric model is envisioned for children up to 12 years whilst the Infant model is designed for neonates.

4) Cardiology  IV  Stethoscopes

.

.

The Littmann Cardiology IV™ is the most advanced and perfected version of the world’s most reliable classic stethoscope. It follows the traditional Littmann lines with a double-sided chestpiece for pediatric and adult use (unlike the more upmarket versions of the Cardiology series). Besides this, it relies on improved acoustics which better allows it to capture high-frequency sounds, both diaphragms are tunable and it has dual-lumen tubing which reduces ambient and friction noise.

5) Cardiology Master Stethoscopes

.

.

The Littmann Master Cardiology™ has tunable dual frequency diaphragms, with two parallel sound conduits (to reduce ambient noise and friction), olives with Snap-Tight Soft Sealing technology. Definitely, this model relies on a combination of features which make it into an extremely powerful tool, almost without equal. The Master Cardiology™ is simply the best of the Littmann acoustic stethoscopes. If you want an acoustic stethoscope with unrivalled performance –this would be the best choice for you.

6) Electronic Stethoscope Model 3100

.

.

The Littmann 3100 has the same acoustic performance as the superior model –the 3200. It also has 24x magnification and 85% reduction of ambient noise. However, this model does not permit the recording of auscultations nor does it have wireless connectivity. If you are looking for exceptional acoustic performance but you don’t need to record or share your findings, this is the Littmann for you. Cutting-edge technology and exceptional performance.
