When you want to make solid diagnoses, you need the right tools. The Littmann Cardiology IV is probably the best versatile acoustic stethoscope ever. Versatile in that you are able to auscultate both children and adults. Great because more than 30 years of product feedback from its predecessor, the Littmann Cardiology III, have been incorporated in the development.

Best versatile stethoscope ever

Next generation diaphragm and tubing technology have been used, providing excellent acoustics. It really is a great joy to use these extraordinary stethoscopes. The Littmann Cardiology IV stethoscopes are equipped with all the features a doctor needs.

The Littmann Cardiology IV encompasses a redesign, from the ground up, which features a brand new chest piece with fully optimized adult and paediatric diaphragms. Tubing consists of latest generation materials and is designed to last for many years. The bell side is specifically tuned for instant low frequencies. The Littmann Cardiology IV is classy with its latest upgrades and comes with a 7 year warranty, making it the leading product in the industry.

The sounds you hardly hear can be the most important ones...

The Cardiology IV from 3M Littmann gives you a full acoustic range for adult and paediatric auscultation. With its newly designed dual chest piece, you just need to rotate the stem to alternate between the two sides for auscultation. With the Littmann Cardiology IV you can even hear those sounds that are hardly audible. The auscultation capacity is superior to any other stethoscope for both paediatric and adults. Only the Littmann 3200 (electronic stethoscope) will surpass this stethoscope in acoustic performance. The optimized acoustic sensitivity is the result of innovations in design and materials used. For example, the improved tube design (two tubes in one) reduces friction sounds almost completely. The tubing is now even more resistant to skin oils and cleansing alcohol, which results in a longer life cycle of the tube. Warranty time is extended to 7 years, beating a budget competitor like the Schweitzer Cardio III. Making it the market leader. The sounds are clearer and easier to hear than with any other stethoscope.

Easy to clean and exchange diaphragms

Have you ever tried to change a worn diaphragm on a stethoscope? Than you know that your nails will probably not survive this. Finally, the 3M Littmann designers have managed to fix this issue. Exchanging diaphragms is now a breeze with the new diaphragm kits. Please keep in mind that you can easily add these spare parts kits to your order if you decide to buy a stethoscope. Littmann recommends to keep your diaphragms in optimal condition to keep the quality of the auscultation high.

Less bacteria, better care

The Littmann IV-Series Cardiology diaphragms are made out of one piece, making them easier to clean. The previous models had two different parts: a diaphragm and a rim where bacteria and dirt could easily accumulate in between. Since the tubing is resistant to skin oils and cleansing alcohol, it is more hygienic. As hygiene is one of the most important concepts when dealing with patients, this is no longer a problem for doctors using this stethoscope. This will help to reduce the chance of cross infecting patients.

Tunable diaphragm

The brand new Littmann Cardiology IV features a tunable diaphragm: low sounds are audible at lower pressures exerted on the thorax, while high sounds are heard when more pressure is exerted. This feature has been introduced with its predecessor, the Littmann Cardiology III. A spare set of both adult and pediatric diaphragms can be easily added to your order.

Pediatric and adult patients

By rotating the chest piece relative to the tube, you can easily switch from adult to pediatric diaphragm. The visual indicator helps you to easily identify which diaphragm you are currently using.

Open bell versatility

Some physicians prefer to use an open bell. This is no problem for the Littmann Cardiology IV. The pediatric diaphragm can be removed easily and replaced by the enclosed non-chill sleeve. However, most doctors, especially pediatricians will prefer to leave the pediatric diaphragm as this will give superior acoustics when examining children.

The new design and improved acoustic quality enable superior auscultation. The bell side is highly tuned for instant low frequencies. All together the Littmann Cardiology IV is designed for doctors who give highest priority to versatility and superior quality.

The latest features making this stethoscope unique are:

  • NEW latest dual head cardiology technology
  • NEW chest piece designed for improved high frequency acoustics
  • NEW long life tubing technology designed to minimise external friction sounds
  • NEW 100% latex or phthalates free tubing for increased patient comfort, durability and lifespan
  • NEW designed single piece diaphragm for easy cleaning and less bacteria
  • NEW 7 year warranty
  • FREE Spare parts with every stethoscope: large eartips, small eartips, non chill bell sleeve
  • NEW Tunable technology - The latest technology lets you easily switch from low to high frequency sounds by applying more pressure.
  • Double sided large/small chest piece - This allows both adult and paediatric assessment. For maximum versatility the reverse side can be easily transformed into a traditional open bell, with the supplied non-chill rim.
  • Laser engrave your stethoscope. As one of Europe’s largest Littmann distributors we will engrave your stethoscope the same day without delay. Making it your own and preventing it from theft or loss.
  • Anatomically designed headset for optimal acoustics.
  • Comfortable soft sealing eartips which give an excellent seal and reduce ambient noise.
  • Littmann performance rating of 9 out of 10

The special features of this unique Littmann Cardiology IV are as follows:

Better audibility. Especially high frequency sounds.

Tunable diaphragms. With both the pediatric and adult diaphragms you can hear both high and low frequency sounds.

Pediatric side to open bell. The pediatric diaphragm can be replaced by a non-chill rim, if the physician desires.

Less bacteria. Since the diaphragms are one piece, the new diaphragm avoids dirt piling up.

Improved tube technology with two internal lumens ensuring better acoustics.

Improved tubing without latex or phthalates ensuring longer life cycle and better resistance to skin oils, alcohol and stains.

Warranty: 7 years
