Top-of-the-line stethoscope brand Littmann has just introduced a new satin finish tubing in four new colors for the Littmann Cardiology IV Stethoscope and the Littmann Classic III models. The satin finish tubing extends the lifespan and durability of the stethoscope, as it’s more resistant to skin oils and alcohol, less likely to stain, and doesn’t stick to clothing, skin, or hair.
These fantastic new tubing colors come just in time for the holiday season, making the perfect gift for the healthcare professional in your family. Take a look below as we cover the four brand new color options for Littmann’s new satin finish tubing innovation.
3M™ Littmann® Classic III™ Stethoscope, 5912C, Stainless-finish Chestpiece, Marine Blue Tube
The first new tubing color we’d like to highlight is Marine Blue, featured on the 3M™ Littmann® Classic III™ Stethoscope. This compact stethoscope is made in the USA and is perfect for clinicians working in non-critical settings. It can be used on both adult and pediatric patients and has exceptional acoustic performance, so it’s a highly versatile instrument that’s suitable for most healthcare providers.
The two-sided chestpiece with tunable diaphragm technology from 3M helps practitioners work quickly and efficiently when assessing patients. Not to mention, the strong yet lightweight materials that make up this stethoscope make it highly durable yet comfortable enough to wear all day.
The new satin finish tubing makes for even more comfortability and isn’t likely to stick to clothes or hair. Plus, it’s even more flexible than previous versions, so it’s easy to fold and stow without damaging the instrument.
Another great feature of the stain finish tubing is that it is easier to clean, and since it is less likely to stick than other tubing styles, it collects less lint and debris, leading to a sleeker appearance.
3M™ Littmann® Classic III™ Stethoscope, 5910C, Stainless-finish Chestpiece, Champagne Rose Tube
Another great Littmann stethoscope featuring the new tubing colors and innovative satin finish is the 3M™ Littmann® Classic III™ Stethoscope, Champagne Rose Tube. Featuring all the same features and perks as the previous stethoscope, this option has an incredible rosy tubing color, adding a hint of feminine beauty to any healthcare practitioner’s day-to-day.
Whether you work with adult or pediatric patients, this stethoscope can handle it all. Busy healthcare providers will love the adjustable headset tension, soft-sealing eartips, and lightweight design that make this stethoscope comfortable to wear even after hours of use.
Featuring the new satin finish tubing, this stethoscope is easier to clean and more debris- and scuff-resistant than previous tubing styles. Even after a long day in the clinic, this stethoscope looks clean and sleek.
When you’re on the move, this new tubing style is easy to fold up, stow away, and return to its normal shape whenever you need it. It feels incredible to the touch with a silky smooth non-stick feel that you won’t find with uncoated tubing, and it is completely free of phthalates and rubber latex.
3M™ Littmann® Cardiology IV™ Diagnostic Stethoscope, 6187C, Stainless-finish Chestpiece, Midnight Blue Tube
Switching gears to the 3M™ Littmann® Cardiology IV™ Diagnostic Stethoscope in the new Midnight Blue tube color, this instrument has a refined appearance and is built to help you hear more. The Littmann Cardiology IV can isolate subtle and hard-to-hear sounds for better patient monitoring and diagnosis, perfect for loud or challenging environments.
You’ll find this stethoscope has better audibility of high-frequency sounds compared to other models, and the satin finish tubing has a comfortable and flexible feel–perfect for the intense demands of critical care settings.
This highly reliable instrument and satin finish tubing are the perfect match for practitioners on the go, easily folding up to be stowed away in scrubs or lab coat pockets without sticking. This stethoscope has a seven-year warranty, and the new satin finish helps extend the instrument’s lifespan given its improved resistance to stains, skin oils, and alcohol.
3M™ Littmann® Cardiology IV™ Diagnostic Stethoscope, 6186C, Black Matte-finish Chestpiece, Alabaster Tube
The Alabaster tube color is a new option for the 3M™ Littmann® Cardiology IV™ Diagnostic Stethoscope. With a stark contrast between the cream tubing color and the black metal headpiece, this instrument is truly a gorgeous statement piece and a winning color combination.
Like the previous stethoscope, this instrument features superior acoustic quality for detecting even the most subtle noises, including hard-to-hear sounds like S3 gallop murmurs or aortic stenosis.
The stethoscope works great on both adult and pediatric patients, and the new satin tubing finish gives a smooth feel, comfortable wear, and convenient portability that other tubing styles lack. In addition, it’s easier to clean, doesn’t snag on hair or clothing, and is more resistant to stains, alcohol, and skin oils for better longevity.
It’s perfect for even sensitive practitioners and patients, as this new tubing finish contains no natural rubber latex or phthalate plasticizers. If you’re thinking about gifting this to the healthcare provider in your life, you can get the instrument engraved with their name or initials for an extra personalized touch.
