Welcome to our Stethoscope collection.

Stethoscopes

Here you will find anything you need for your own use, to check if everything is already with your heart. We use this medical instrument in listening to sounds produced within the body, chiefly in the heart of the lungs. 

What criteria should you take into account when choosing a traditional stethoscope like we are selling?

 Single head or dual head chest piece?

- The single head stethoscope does not allow you to alternate listening to low and high-frequency sounds by simply turning over the chest piece. However, if a single-head chestpiece is equipped with a double frequency diaphragm, you will be able to apply slight pressure in order to hear low-frequency sounds and a firmer pressure for high-frequency sounds. The single-head chestpiece also limits sound loss during auscultation and is known for its perfect propagation of sound. On the other hand, this type of chestpiece is more suitable for blood pressure measurements as its shape allows it to fit more easily under the cuff.

- The dual-head stethoscope first and foremost allows you to listen to different types of sounds, not only those coming from the heart and lungs but also from the carotid arteries and abdomen. Placing the bell on top of where the carotid artery passes, gives you the opportunity to listen to the sounds that characterize stenosis. On the median part of the abdomen, the bell is used to detect a systolic heart murmur that might indicate an aortic aneurysm.

You can check our single head and dual-head stethoscope in our Stethoscope collection.

Our Classic Stethoscope offers high acoustic sensitivity for exceptional performance when doing general physical assessments. It features dual tunable diaphragms and a un updated design that is easier to clean and maintain.

Some of the benefits of using our Classic Stethoscope are:

 - Two-sided chestpiece with tunable diaphragms on both the adult and pediatric sides.

 - Single-piece tunable diaphragm is easy to attach, and easier to clean because its surface is smooth without crevices.

 - Pediatric side converts to a traditional open bell by replacing the single-piece diaphragm with a non-chill rim.

 - Next-generation tubing provides longer life due to improved resistance to skin oils and alcohol; less likely to pick up stains.
