Master Classic II Stethoscope
At a price just above $200, buying the Master Cardiology™ is definitely an investment in your healthcare profession. But what you get in return is a solid, high quality stethoscope that delivers impressively clear, detailed sounds at different frequency ranges by just adjusting the pressure on the chest piece thanks.
My mother had introduced me to a lot of my father’s friends because she believed that I would get to know the guy my dad was better through his friends than just in the hospital visits.
Next on the list is the famous Littmann Master Classic II Stethoscope which also features the advanced tunable diaphragm technology. This technology is great to have, in particular, because it basically allows you to get a quick and complete sonic image of a location without having to futz around with the stethoscope. The chest piece is made of fine-grade materials that hold up to chemicals, impacts and scratches that come with daily use. The ear tips are quite soft and fit snugly thus filtering out noise- the whoosh of heating and air conditioning systems, sounds of medical monitors and human noise. Oh yeah, it’s a loud, loud world.
