5.2 Comparison

  • Is the Card IV superior to the master cardiology?
    Both the Cardiology IV and Master Cardiology™ stethoscopes have outstanding acoustics. The major difference is within the chestpiece functionality. The Cardiology IV stethoscope offers a pediatrics side which can be converted into a traditional bell, where the Master Cardiology™ stethoscope has a single sided chestpiece. It really depends on the patients you diagnose and your personal preference.
  • The Master Cardiology stethoscope is considered the top-of-the-line model for acoustic performance. However, the Cardiology IV stethoscope comes very close. The biggest difference lies with the chestpiece. The Master Cardiology stethoscope has a single-sided chestpiece for use on adults. Many cardiologists use this stethoscope.

    The Cardiology IV has a double-sided chestpiece (large side for adults and small side for pediatric or thin patients). A clinician that sees patients of all ages might prefer the Cardiology IV stethoscope because of that. Also, the pediatric side of its chestpiece converts to an open bell, so if you want the option of having an open bell, the Cardiology IV stethoscope is recommended.

  • Where can I engrave my stethoscope chestpiece?
    Dealers offer their own engraving services so we recommend shopping around for the best price. Visit our Where to Buy page for a list of 3M™ Littmann® authorized distributors in Malaysia.
  • Littmann stethoscopes does not recommend the use of decorative glitter or rhinestones on the tubing since their effect on acoustic performance is unknown and they may introduce extraneous noise due to rubbing on the sound tube. In addition, these types of decorations interfere with the proper cleaning of your stethoscope.
  • We do not provide special orders nor do we encourage our customers to attempt to customize their stethoscopes.
