A Top Selling 'Scope you'll love!

When you're looking for products on our site, often times the amount of choices can be overwhelming. One way to help narrow down is to click on the "sort by popularity" option. This way you can see our top sellers at a glance and the masses don't lie.

One of our top selling stethoscopes continues to be the Littmann 2141 Master Classic II Stethoscope in 27". It comes in a special edition black, just black, burgandy and purple, truly catering to all!

Awesome sound! I had trouble with other stethoscopes, nothing sounded clear, then I tried my fellow EMTs scope which was a Littmann. I now have my own and love it! -Firefighter Z

When you're looking for a professional scope, the Littmann is it. It's a high-performance single-lumen tubing that gives you excellent acoustic performance.

The diaphragm of the Littmann is tunable and can easily and conveniently alternate between the low and high-frequency sounds without having to turn over the chest piece. A single-sided chest piece has more portable convenience that users love.

The ergonomic design is award-winning, and the acoustic seal is excellent with a comfortable fit including the patented 3M Littmann Snap Tight Soft-Sealing Eartips. They're comfortably angled and the anatomically correct headset gives them a superior fit so they never bother you.

National High Blood Pressure Education Month

May is National High Blood Pressure Education Month. According to the CDC, reducing high blood pressure can lower your risk for stroke and heart attack. 

Unfortunately 1 in 3 US adults, which is roughly 67 million people have high blood pressure. High blood pressure makes your heart overly work and then increases your risk of heart disease and stroke. 

High blood pressure can often be silent. You can have high blood pressure and not even know it, which is why it's often referred to as the Silent Killer. This is the month to make sure you get yours checked. To make sure you ask friends and family members if they've had theirs checked. It's easy and painless to have checked. Many of your pharmacies may do it, and of course, your doctor's office.

At theEMSstore, we've got a few products to help with blood pressure checks.

This easy-to-read, automated Wrist Blood Pressure Cuff is perfect for fire and law enforcement professionals who want to have a back-up BP monitor available on the scene. This device measures and tracks blood pressure and heart rate readings with comfort and ease.

The blood pressure cuff is hospital tested and clinically accurate ensuring you the highest level of quality and precision.  A twist air release valve guides the user’s accuracy. 


So don't forget to use May as the month to get your blood pressure in check. Ask your friends, family and loved ones if they've been checked. Don't let the silent killer touch you or those you love. Find these and other blood pressure products on our website.
