I am a full-time general pediatrician with > 20 years experience. I have used Littmann pediatric stethoscopes for decades. I bought this stethoscope because of the noise cancelling feature. First, the positives: 1) the stethoscope performs well at high frequencies, and this is useful for murmurs in infants. Second, there is a modest degree of noise attenuation. I can see where this may be of value in a noisy ER or for EMS personnel in the field. But (now the negatives) the noise attenuation is really quite modest. I was expecting something along the lines of my Bose headphones. Forget it. Not even close. Second, the diaphragm setting eliminates many mid frequencies that are necessary to assess lung sounds in children. At the same time, the bell setting attenuates mid and high frequencies so well that I find this setting is useless for pulmonary auscultation. What they need is a setting that allows BOTH to be heard simultaneously. Lastly, the heart rate monitor works on infants < 5% of the time and on school a
Works great for those heard to hear low BPs and for lung sounds but I work in cardiac/pulmonary rehab and need to take exercise BPs frequently. Very hard to hear while someone is on the treadmill and hard to hold in place on a moving target. Diaphragm cover also frequently falls off and the film covering it has peeled off. Waste of my money unfortunately.
I am a physician. Thus far, this (3100)stethoscope has NOT performing at par for Littman. Contrary to what is stated in manual, it rarely provides a reading of the patient's heart rate when diaphragm is held over the heart apex area for many seconds. It amplifies all noises in addition to the ones you're interested in. Rubbing against skin produces significant noise interference. It feels this product needs refinement and I feel I did not get the quality I paid for. Overall, I am NOT satisfied with this purchase. I would also know how I could safely clean/disinfect it please.
Absolutely love this stethoscope. I wish I hadn't waited so long to buy it!!
I love my Littmann 3100 stethoscope, it's much better than the electronic steth. I purchased in the past. I recommend this to anyone interested in enhancing their ability to diagnose heart and lung sounds. It's worth the price!
