When you’re shopping for a stethoscope, there’s no substitute for trying out different stethoscopes. Ask colleagues if you can listen through their stethoscopes. (Of course, clean the eartips before and after use.) Look at the features. See if the headsets are easy or hard to adjust. Chances are, a 3M™ Littmann® Stethoscope will offer everything you’re looking for, and more.
Auscultation is a clinical skill worth learning. The ability to accurately identify various heart, lung, and bowel sounds can help you quickly and efficiently assess patients and monitor their condition.
Your 3M™ Littmann® Stethoscope is designed to provide years of reliable service. Periodically giving it a routine cleaning helps ensure optimal acoustic performance, helps extend the life of the stethoscope, and leaves it looking shiny and new.
