The pediatric side of the chest piece easily converts to a traditional bell by simply replacing the diaphragm with the nonchill bell sleeve included with each stethoscope.

“As a nursing student at an inner city hospital I really didn’t want or need such a nice stethescope. But my husband surprised me with it anyway. It turns out I never knew what sounds I was missing until I began using the Littmann Cardiology III stethoscope. Honestly, I don’t need it but I do very much enjoy using it. My old double tubed hand-me-down pales in comparison. The Littmann allows me to auscultate easier and simply makes hearing lungs sounds, etc much louder and clearer. These are sounds I may have heard with my old stethescope, but now I really know what I am hearing and have a little more confidence doing assessments.”

“Great stethoscope..Sound quality is amazing. Very clear acoustics and is even great with backround noise.”

“I don’t know why I used the Classic II S.E. for 5 years since nursing school! The Littmann Cardiology III stethoscope is 100% better! I can hear heart tones & lung sounds like a pro even in a loud, crowded ICU room. Suddenly, it has become easy to detect heart murmurs, fine crackles, and all those things that I had to strain & use my imagination to hear before I got this scope. I would recommend this product to anyone who can possibly afford this stethoscope. It is worth the extra money.

“Breath sounds are so much more clear and when listening to the heart it sounds so clear. Awesome instrument!”

“So far my experience with the Littman Cardiology III has been superb. I could not have asked for a more perfect stethoscope. This is useful because with it have been able to make assessments of my patients with precision. It is indeed a great tool.”

“I just got my second Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope. My first one lasted 11 years of constant use, and this was use in a veterinary clinic where puppies will chew on the tubes and ear tips. Over the life of the stethoscope, I had replaced the rings and ear tips twice. Admittedly, I have not been gentle with this stethoscope so I am very happy with how durable this stethoscope has been. The metal bar between the arms snapped when I was putting it on one day, but like I said: it has been in use 8 hours a day, 6 days a week for 11 years. What really makes this stethoscope standout is the sensitivity of the acoustics. I can accurately differentiate the heart sounds from the background noise of a purring cat or heavily breathing dog. I have no trouble ausculting grade 1/6 murmurs in very small patients. While waiting for my new Cardio III to arrive, I used a Classic II short tube and I felt like I couldn’t hear a thing. I fully expect to get another 11 years out of this stethoscope and I hope they are still making them in 2022.”
