The Littmann Cardiology IV is one of the latest models of stethoscopes from the Littmann brand. The steth is specially designed for cardiologists but can also be used by anyone interested in a cardiology stethoscope.
This new steth has a tunable diaphragm chestpiece on each side. One of the diaphragms is one for pediatric usage and the other for adults. The diaphragm has no crevices; its surface is extremely smooth.
Features of the Littmann Cardiology IV
The sound output of the Littmann IV is crispier and clearer than that of other stethoscopes. This is due to the uniquely designed chest piece and double lumen that has revolutionized the stethoscope market. This stethoscope has challenged other manufacturers to up their cardiology stethoscopes.
The Littmann Cardiology IV is lighter than other Littmann steths. With a weight of 6.2 ounces, the steth is 0.02 ounces lighter than the Littmann Cardiology III. This makes the steth easier to wear around the neck and carry around. You are also sure to give the correct diagnosis with the steth.
This stethoscope’s length makes it the best for patient examination as you won’t be too close near them to make them uncomfortable. The 27-inch next-generation tubing is durable than that of other Littmann stethoscopes. The tubing is now more resistant to oils from the skin and even alcohols. You definitely won’t need to replace the stethoscope anytime soon.
Like with other Littmann stethoscopes, the Littmann Cardiology IV also has extra pairs of ear tips, just in case you need a change. Of course, the all favorite soft sealing ear tips are one of them.
