It’s usually the doctors that are seen carrying their stethoscopes around their neck or inside their pocket, handy enough whenever the need arises. However, nurses as well need one. After all, it’s (us) the nurses who are always at the patient’s bedside.
But remember, a great nurse always comes handy with a great stethoscope to save the day. So which is the greatest of them all?
Littmann has already been known to be one of the most popular stethoscope among medical related students especially nursing students including the nurses, of course. Since its release, Classic II has always remained at the top among other models in the market.
A Test of Time
Why not? By just the name itself, classic would only mean it can stand a test of time. Like a family heirloom being passed from one generation to generation. One coming from a family of nurses still has hers since 1986. While one, now a dad is still using his 3M Littmann Classic II S.E. Stethoscope for already over 15 years.
Weight problems are the main disadvantages of a stethoscope but 3M Littmann Classic II just weighs right thus causes no discomfort when you carry it around your neck for long hours or just keep inside your pocket.
It’s always a pain for nursing students everytime they can’t clearly auscultate lung sounds. But with 3M Littmann Classic II S.E. Stethoscope, you can achieve it in a very clear confident manner. You can hear almost everything from lung sounds to the faintest BP even with the ambulance on the road.
But what I mean with a boost in confidence is the most interesting part of this stethoscope. Unlike the typical ones in which you still need to turn over its chest piece when changing either diaphragm or bell, you only need to apply a little pressure over the chest piece. No hassle especially in an emergency situation.
