Right out of the box, it lives up to its name.
The 3M™ Littmann® Classic III™ Stethoscope is the latest version of the stethoscope that helps millions of medical professionals achieve their best. The Classic III stethoscope is a dependable clinical tool that provides high acoustic sensitivity for performing general physical assessments. With a two-sided chestpiece, dual tunable diaphragms, convertible open bell, improved tubing, and much more, the Classic III stethoscope combines the best of new and traditional.
Here's what makes the Classic III stethoscope stand out:
Tunable diaphragms on both the adult and pediatric sides of the chestpiece. The pediatric side is useful for small or thin patients, around bandages, and for carotid assessment.
Paediatric side converts to an open bell. Just remove the single-piece diaphragm and replace it with a non-chill rim.
Single-piece diaphragm is easy to attach and easy to clean because the surface is smooth without crevices.
Open bell stays clear of dirt and debris by covering it with the small diaphragm.
Next-generation tubing lasts longer with improved resistance to skin oils and alcohol; less likely to pick up stains.
No natural rubber latex or phthalate plasticisers are used in the tubing or any other component.
