Why the stethoscope became successful

As you continue to read this Cardiology III review article, you will find out that this stethoscope offers the best performance but at the same time, it is at competitive price. It offers many features like reliability and backup.

Littmann Cardiology III is a simple stethoscope and it is affordable in all Cardiology models. This means that it is a perfect stethoscope for specialists in cardiology, anesthesiology, internal medicine and pulmonology. Even if it has the name cardiology, it does not mean that it is an exclusive tool to use only in cardiology. It is named this because it is a stethoscope that has more than an average performance. It is accurate and more reliable. It has capacity of detecting many acoustic nuances.

With the stethoscope, you can hear S4 and S3 sounds, Grade I murmurs and midsystolic clicks. The specialty of this stethoscope is found within the nuance, detection of the details and the sensitivity using a high accuracy.

Many nurses and family doctors choose to buy the stethoscopes from the cardiology range. They do this because they would like to have a reliable and excellent tool to diagnose their patients. The other reasons is that the stethoscope is being manufactured in United States so it is resilient and it is built using the premium materials and it comes with a guarantee of 5 years. They are stethoscopes built to last for long. You can use the stethoscope on daily basis for 15 years.

Dual frequency and a tunable diaphragm found with Littmann stethoscopes

As it is found with many of Littmann stethoscopes, the two sides of a Cardiology III chestpiece has a dual frequency tunable diaphragm. With it, you can get both low and high frequencies and this depend on pressure which is exerted at the patient.

To get light pressure, you should use a bell mode which auscultates low frequency sounds. Firm pressure using membrane or diaphragm, it is used to auscultate high frequency sound.

Longest diameter side of a chestpiece stethoscope is found at both side of a diaphragm and it can be used on adults and the shortest diameter side performs same function for pediatric clients.

As you can find in this Cardiology III review article, the stethoscope may be used for both pediatric and adult patients. It is also possible to use shortest diameter side as a traditional open bell. A stethoscope can include non chill bell sleeve so that it may replace an adjustable diaphragm which is installed with it by default.

Dual lumen tubing is meant to reduce the friction with environmental noise which is a challenge to the acoustic stethoscopes. The Littman had achieved an improvement when it comes to this and this is because of dual lumen tubing used with its stethoscopes. The dual tube is the variation of the typical shape of the stethoscope and it helps to reduce the noise while improving acoustic performance.
