Product Description

Product Description

The 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope, one of the most recognized stethoscopes in the industry, features tunable diaphragms on both sides to deliver outstanding acoustic performance, diagnostic versatility and convenience for treating adult and pediatric patients. The diaphragm on the small side is easily removable and, with the included nonchill bell sleeve, converts to a traditional open bell for capturing low frequencies. The Cardiology III stethoscope is used by students and medical professionals such as cardiologists, pediatricians, and other healthcare providers to identify, listen to, and study cardiac, lung, and other body sounds in adult, pediatric patients. With innovative tunable diaphragm technology, switching between bell and diaphragm modes is as easy as a simple pressure change on the chestpiece, which means there is no need to remove, index and replace for same-site auscultation or turning over the chestpiece. This time-saving feature allows for focus on the patient. Resilient tubing folds tightly for pocket portability and retains its shape while patented Snap Tight Soft-Sealing Eartips help form an effective acoustic seal. The anatomically correct headset is angled to channel sound and enhance listening comfort while the nonchill rim and diaphragm provide patient comfort. The Cardiology III is made in the USA; product and package are latex-free and come complete with non-chill rims for the small and large diaphragms, small and large eartips, and instructions.

Stethoscopes are diagnostic instruments that amplify sounds made by the body from the heart, lungs, abdomen and intestinal tract, or other body sites. A stethoscope is used to detect and study internal systems, such as fetal development, blood flow or blood pressure (BP), and respiration, and sounds, such as cardiac, venous, arterial, pulmonary, and uterine. Stethoscopes typically have Y-shaped rubber tubing that allows sound to travel from the chestpiece to the eartips. An open bell detects low frequency sounds, and a diaphragm detects high frequency sounds. A stethoscope can come as single, double (dual), or triple-head. Binaural stethoscopes are used with both ears, and single stethoscopes work with one ear. Differential stethoscopes are double-head, and allow sound comparison between different body sites. Non-electronic, also called mechanical or acoustic stethoscopes, transmit sound through hollow tubing to a listener’s ear. Stethoscopes are used by students and a wide array of healthcare providers including physicians, nurses, and veterinarians, as well as specialists such as cardiologists, pediatricians, gastroenterologists, pulmonologists, and respiratory professionals in hospital, clinical, or other healthcare facilities.

Style Name: Machined Stainless Steel ChestpieceColor Name: BlackOverall Length: 27
I've had mine for about 3-4 years. You can pick up murmurs and crackles very easily with this model. Recently, I tried using my former stethoscope on patients (Sprague Rappaport), and WHOA!! I could barely hear anything!! (I had gotten spoiled by my Cards-III for the last few years without even knowing it!) Years ago, I was wondering how my classmates and residents (all of whom seemed to have the Cards-III) could hear murmurs and stuff, and I couldn't! As a resident now, I'm glad I own one. One day, I forgot my own Cards-III, and had to borrow a colleague's stethoscope (it was a Classic II SE). Even though her Classic II SE was also a Littman, I still couldn't hear as clearly through that, as I did the Cards-III.

On the downside, it is rather pricey. But I equate it to buying a good pair of glasses. In exchange for your money, you'll be able to hear a lot more.

I loved the versatility of being able to switch from adult to pediatric just by rotating the stem of the chest piece. The quality of auscultation is good. The only problem is that the tubing got stiff after a couple of years and cracked after 7 years. Apparently a vinyl protector is a must with these stethoscopes.

Style Name: Machined Stainless Steel ChestpieceColor Name: BlackOverall Length: 27
The Littmann Cardiology I got in med school back in 1988 bit the dust five years ago (tubes cracked after 19 years of heavy use). I got a top-line Tycos that worked for 5 years before it just fell apart (tubes hardened and cracked and the headset spring pooped out). The Tycos acoustics seemd OK but not as good as my first Littman, so I went back to Littmann, and I'm glad I did. The Cardiology III transmits heart, lung, and abdominal sounds far better than the Tycos. I thought my older ears were the reason the Tycos didn't seem as good, but no I know it was the scope, because I hear sounds just as well as I did years ago with the Cardiology... The tunable diaphragm takes getting used to, but it does work as advertized. I'm a neurologist and I find that the "pediatric" headpiece with the smaller tunable diaphragm is superb for listening to carotid and femoral bruits, and even for listening to flow in the temporal arteries...You can remove the small diaphragm and use that end as a bell, but frankly I don't see a need to do that.

Bottom line: you can't find a better acoustic multiuse stethoscope. I would have been satisfied even if I paid the list price. You can find it cheaper on-line. I purchased mine in a brick-and-mortar store in Oakland, CA (Nightingale Scrubs) for $100 below list, and I'd recommend them to local folks who want to go there. They carry the full Littmann line.

Style Name: Machined Stainless Steel ChestpieceColor Name: BlackOverall Length: 27
This steth is amazing when it comes to acoustics. Everything you want to listen to is crisp and clear. I often have my fellow nurses borrowing my stethoscope when they are listening for clicks and murmurs. I honestly don't know that you could find a better stethoscope that isn't electronic.

I find the soft ear pieces to be comfortable, but it did take a bit of stretching it out in the beginning to keep it from squeezing my head too much. Once it stretched out a bit, the tension has been great and applies just enough pressure to stay in my ears and create a good seal without me feeling like it is burrowing into my head.

Personally, I don't really use the tunable diaphragm. When I first got the stethoscope I attempted to use it and I never got the hang of it. I have an open bell on the smaller side and it works just fine for me.

The downside is that this is an incredibly heavy stethoscope. I can't wear this thing around my neck at all because my neck will start to ache in a short time. I feel like the constant pulling it in and out of my pockets coupled with constantly putting it down every where greatly increases the likelihood of it disappearing and means it is getting far dirtier than if I could just throw it around my neck.

Another feature of this stethoscope that i don't particularly care for is the stickiness of the tubing. I clean it several times a shift, but it always seems to have a tackiness that I don't care for. It is so tacky that it actually picks up lint and stray hair. I contacted Littmann about this and they stated that the material that the stethoscope is somewhat tacky due to the nature of the material.

This is a great stethoscope that has served me well, but am shopping for the Littmann Classic II S.E. as a replacement.

Style Name: Machined Stainless Steel ChestpieceColor Name: BlackOverall Length: 27
I am a Firefighter/Paramedic and when I entered into paramedic school over ten years ago I blindly purchased the Littmann Cardiology III it has been absolutely the best medical equipment purchase I have made! Working in an emergency environment and not knowing what type of patient will be next whether they're sick, not sick, pediatric or adult. The Littmann Cardiology III with the dual-head of adult and pediatric along with the tunable-diaghragm for high and low frequancies gives you the ability to only need one quality stethoscope. If your in the medical field and don't deal with pediatric patients, but like to listen to low-frequencies sounds such as heart sound the stethoscope comes with an attachment to switch the pediatric side over to a traditional bell. I honestly don't know how you can go wrong with the Littmann Cardiology III. Just a tip, get the tubing along with the chestpiece engraved since someone could replace just the tubing removing any identifying mark of yours. Plus this stethoscope comes in wide range of great color combinations for you to personalize your Littmann Cardiology III. Enjoy, you won't regret it.
