What kind of stethoscope is best for a paramedic?

Posted by Kaelyn Sanchez on

    It can be easy to trust the cardiac monitor in your aid car, but the truth is, in case of a power outage, power insufficiency, or other unforeseen event, a stethoscope will be your most reliable piece of life-saving equipment. Not relying on battery power or electricity, a stethoscope is a simple but essential tool for a paramedic. Making sure you own and use the correct stethoscope can be a life or death matter, so let’s get to the facts:

  • The Littman®Caridology IV™stethoscope is designed for both pediatric and adult patients
  • The Littman®Cardiology IV™has been manufactured to isolate subtle sounds with a 40% larger chest piece and 60% deeper bell than the Littman®Classic III™Stethoscope
  • The Cardiology IV™by Littman®is specifically made for critical and challenging environments, such as a hospital emergency department, cardiac ICU, or any critical care unit, including ambulances and emergency services
  • The Cardiology IV™can help you hear even faint heart murmurs, and detect changes in a patient’s status in loud and chaotic environments
  • The single piece tunable diaphragm of the Cardiology IV™allows you to hear both high and low frequency sounds
  • Dual-lumen tubing on the Cardiology IV™stethoscope combines two sounds in one tube, eliminating the rubbing noise of traditional double tubes
  • The Littman®Cardiology IV™comes with a 7 year warranty so you can feel secure that you have made a wise investment

So ask yourself, if it was yourself or a loved one facing a medical emergency or sudden trauma, what tools would you like your paramedic to have at their disposal? The Cardiology IV™is truly a life saving device that is worth the cost because of its power, durability, and exceptional functionality. Try it out for yourself so you can see what you’ve been missing, and you can take your patient care to the next level!
