    The 3M™ Littmann® Classic II S.E. Stethoscope is a dependable, hard-working clinical tool for physical assessment and monitoring of your patients. It’s the choice of millions of care providers who are dedicated to achieving the best patient outcomes.

    The 3M™ Littmann® Classic II S.E. Stethoscope is a true clinical workhorse, providing high acoustic sensitivity through its dual-sided, stainless steel chestpiece; with a tunable diaphragm on one side and traditional bell on the other. The Classic II S.E. stethoscope is used by students and medical professionals alike to identify, listen to, and study heart, lung, and other body sounds for physical assessment and diagnosis.

    Tunable diaphragm technology—a 3M invention—lets clinicians hear different frequency sounds by simply adjusting the pressure on the chestpiece. Hold the chestpiece with light pressure to hear low frequency sounds; press a little more to hear higher frequency sounds. This time-saving feature allows the healthcare provider to focus on the patient, while the non-chill rim provides patient comfort.

    Headset tension is easily adjusted for head size and comfort by squeezing together or pulling apart the eartubes. Snap-tight, soft-sealing eartips conform to individual ears for an excellent acoustic seal and comfortable fit. Eartips snap firmly onto the ends of the eartubes and, for safety, require a significant effort to remove.

    Resilient next-generation tubing retains its shape and flexibility even after folding tightly into a pocket. It provides longer stethoscope life due to improved resistance to skin oils and alcohol, and is less likely to pick up stains. Next-generation tubing is not made with natural rubber latex, a benefit to sensitive medical professionals and their patients. And, to play its part in the protection of human health and the environment, the next-generation tubing does not contain phthalate plasticizers.

    The Classic II S.E. stethoscope is made in the USA for consistent quality. It comes complete with large soft-sealing eartips, large firm eartips, and instructions.

    Suggested Applications

    • Used as a diagnostic aid as part of the physical assessment of a patient. Ideally suited for certified nursing assistants, medical assistants, physician assistants, registered nurses, entry level nurses, EMTs, licensed vocational nurses and nursing students

    3M™ Littmann® Classic II S.E. Stethoscope is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality This is the second littmann I have owned and it only lasted three years. The first I owned lasted 10 years. The tubing is not worth the material it is made out of. Very disappointed in the quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Littmann II Classic I bought mine in 2001. Has been very reliable. Only in the last few years has the tubing become stiff, warped and has small cracks

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Only Bargain Option I own 2. Every month or so something falls off this stethoscope. I've had to replace the diaphragm / ring a handful of times and the "snap on" ear buds are always getting lost between uses. When getting new parts, they're expensive and are a huge pain to attach. You almost need a hydraulic press to get the ear buds on (Why can't these be a simple screw on?). The thing works... but the reason I have 2 is so I can swap them out with the other when it falls apart and needs repairs.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Diaphram fell off after 4 months. If they send me new parts for free, that would be nice. I carry this around my neck or in my pocket. It fell off sometime between 7am and 11am, I had 5 patients. I went to assess my last patient and it was gone. No where to be found. I don't know if I would recommend this due to the fact it fell off so fast. My last stethoscope lasted over 10 years. I would not buy this again unless they fix this problem.
