- 3M Littmann Lightweight II S.E. Stethoscopes, Black
The 3M Littmann Master Classic II Stethoscope brings together award-winning ergonomic design and excellent acoustic sensitivity. It delivers reliable performance and comfortable use to professionals dedicated to providing the best patient care.
The 3M Littmann Master Classic II Stethoscope combines the reliable, versatile acoustic performance of tunable diaphragm technology with the portable convenience of a single-sided chestpiece. The Master Classic II stethoscope is used by students and medical professionals alike to detect, listen to, and study heart, lung, and other body sounds for physical assessment and diagnosis.
Tunable diaphragm technology—a 3M invention—lets clinicians hear different frequency sounds by simply adjusting the pressure on the chestpiece. Unlike two-sided models, there’s no need to turn over and reposition the chestpiece. Hold the chestpiece with light pressure to hear low frequency sounds; press a little more to hear higher frequency sounds. This time-saving feature allows the healthcare provider to focus on the patient, while the non-chill rim provides patient comfort.
Headset tension is easily adjusted for head size and comfort by squeezing together or pulling apart the eartubes. Snap-tight, soft-sealing eartips conform to individual ears for an excellent acoustic seal and comfortable fit. Eartips snap firmly onto the ends of the eartubes and, for safety, require a significant effort to remove.
Resilient next-generation tubing retains its shape and flexibility even after folding tightly into a pocket. It provides longer stethoscope life due to improved resistance to skin oils and alcohol, and is less likely to pick up stains. Next-generation tubing is not made with natural rubber latex, a benefit to sensitive medical professionals and their patients. And, to play its part in the protection of human health and the environment, the next-generation tubing does not contain phthalate plasticizers.
The Master Classic II stethoscope is made in the USA for consistent quality. It comes complete with large soft-sealing eartips, large firm eartips, and instructions.

Tunable Diaphragm – the Heart of the Lightweight II S.E. Stethoscope
The unique shape of the chestpiece also allows easy navigation around blood pressure cuffs and bandages. This stethoscope is a useful diagnostic tool for blood pressure and limited physical assessment in adult patients and its light weight and tunable diaphragm make it an ideal choice for certified nursing assistants, licensed practical nurses, EMT/EMS, licensed vocational nurses, medical assistants and nursing students. Littmann tunable diaphragm technology offers reliable and clear acoustics, versatility and time-saving convenience. Switching between bell and diaphragm modes is as easy as a simple pressure change on the chestpiece. There is no need to remove, index and replace for same-site auscultation. Resilient tubing folds tightly for pocket portability and retains its shape while patented Snap Tight Soft-Sealing Eartips help form an effective acoustic seal. The anatomically correct headset is angled to channel sound and enhance listening comfort while the nonchill rim and diaphragm provide patient comfort. The Lightweight II S.E. is made in the USA. The product and package are latex-free.

What are Stethoscopes?
Stethoscopes are diagnostic instruments that amplify sounds made by the body from the heart, lungs, abdomen and intestinal tract, or other body sites. A stethoscope is used to detect and study internal systems, such as fetal development, blood flow or blood pressure (BP), and respiration, and sounds, such as cardiac, venous, arterial, pulmonary, and uterine. Stethoscopes typically have Y-shaped rubber tubing that allows sound to travel from the chestpiece to the eartips. An open bell detects low frequency sounds, and a diaphragm detects high frequency sounds. A stethoscope can come as single, double (dual), or triple-head. Binaural stethoscopes are used with both ears, and single stethoscopes work with one ear. Differential stethoscopes are double-head, and allow sound comparison between different body sites. Non-electronic, also called mechanical or acoustic stethoscopes, transmit sound through hollow tubing to a listener’s ear. Stethoscopes are used by students and a wide array of healthcare providers including physicians, nurses, and veterinarians, as well as specialists such as cardiologists, pediatricians, gastroenterologists, pulmonologists, and respiratory professionals in hospital, clinical, or other healthcare facilities.
