Utilize the Updated Design and Improved Acoustics of the New Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope

A trusted leader in innovative auscultation technology, Littmann stethoscopes have garnered worldwide acclaim for their unmatched levels of quality. As a brand name that is associated with precision, acoustical superiority, and innovative designs, Littmann stethoscopes can be relied and depended on for years of superior performance and exceptional service. Offering superior quality and exceptional adaptability, the new Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope is designed to assist emergency medical professionals to perceive the barely perceptible: sounds that can tell you more about a patient’s condition, which can be the difference between life and death.

Littman Cardiology IV Stethoscope

Its distinctive chalice-shaped chestpiece features tunable diaphragms on both sides that result in outstanding acoustic performance, diagnostic versatility, and convenience for treating adult and pediatric patients. The chestpiece’s pediatric side converts to a traditional open bell by removing the tunable diaphragm and replacing it with the included, non-chill bell sleeve.

Clinicians can hear different frequency sounds by simply adjusting the pressure on the chestpiece, all thanks to tunable diaphragm technology—a 3M innovation. To hear low-frequency sounds, simply hold the chestpiece with light pressure. Apply a little more pressure to hear higher-frequency sounds. This technique saves time and allows the clinician to focus on the patient, while the non-chill rim offers ample patient comfort. The rubbing noise that traditional double tubes create is eliminated due to dual-lumen tubing, which combines two sound paths in one tube. This crucial feature allows emergency medical professionals to hear patient sounds with less interference.

Littman Cardiology IV Stethoscope

Resilient, next-generation tubing retains its shape and flexibility even after folding tightly into a pocket. The Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope can resist skin oils, alcohol, and is unlikely to pick up stains – all attributes that greatly extend its lifespan. Its next-generation tubing is not made with natural rubber latex, which is a benefit to sensitive patients, and it is not made with phthalate plasticizers, thereby making it a human-health friendly as well as an environmentally friendly choice for emergency medical professionals. Some additional specs include:

  • it is used to identify, listen to, and study cardiac, lung, and other body sounds in adult and pediatric patients
  • it is made in the U.S.
  • backed by a seven-year warranty
  • included with it are large and small, soft-sealing eartips, large, firm eartips, a non-chill bell sleeve, and instructions

CMC Skedco Drag-N-Lift Harness

It is constructed from heavy-duty, EZ-glide plastic that becomes rigid once it is curved around the patient to form a protective stretcher.
