This is my second one, I including others liked this stethescope so much that it got stolen at work. Even with my name laser etched on it??? What people will do. Keep an eye on yours, this one is flashy. Great tones, perfect for an assessment, BP's, lungs sounds, heart sounds etc...
I have been in EMS since 2007, and started out with a double tube scope. Got a Cardio III when I was in Paramedic school and did not realize what I was missing when listening to my patients. This is the only stethoscope that I have used that I can hear clear lung sounds and heart tones in the back of an ambulance even with the engine running and going emergency to the hospital. My old Cardio III black edition walked off at a ER but it is worth the cost to replace it with another littmann. I would recommend this model to anyone in EMS, ER, or other Critical Care areas where you have a mix of adult and pediatric patient.
The package arrived sooner than I expected, but it was in the exact condition that I expected: Impeccable. Thanks for a good purchase and quality products!!
I finally had to replace my original Cardiology III that I got as a 1st year medical student. The internal spring broke and repair by 3M costs over half the price of a new one. I love the black-on-black edition. Looks very cool & yet professional. Cardiology III has the multi-purpose functionality I need as a family physician treating newborns to elderly. The soft tips originally on it were too soft, actually collapsed on themselves & impaired sound transmission. The hard rubber tips work perfectly for me, and their gray color actually makes the black-on-black style stand out more.
I don't know because I purchased this for my daughter who is graduating next month from college with her BSN in Nursing. She specifically asked for this because while in school, she did clinicals at different hospitals and found that she likes this stethoscope.
