    Details
    • Lightest weight of all Littmann adult stethoscopes at just 118 grams.
    • Dual-sided chestpiece provides versatility of both a tunable diaphragm and open bell.
    • Teardrop-shaped chestpiece for easier positioning under blood pressure cuffs and around bandages.
    • Tunable diaphragm: Hear high or low frequency sounds by slightly adjusting pressure on the chestpiece.
    • Soft-sealing eartips provide an excellent acoustic seal and comfortable fit.

    The 3M™ Littmann® Lightweight II S.E. Stethoscope is an ideal entry-level instrument, with a tunable diaphragm, dual-sided chestpiece, and reliable acoustic performance. Its teardrop shape makes auscultation around blood pressure cuffs easier.

    The 3M™ Littmann® Lightweight II S.E. Stethoscope provides reliable acoustic performance for taking blood pressure readings and making limited physical assessments of adult patients. Weighing just 118 grams, it’s the lightest of all Littmann adult stethoscopes, making it more comfortable for caregivers who wear their stethoscopes all day long.

    The Lightweight II S.E. stethoscope is an entry-level instrument that offers a surprising number of beyond-the-basics features such as a tunable diaphragm, dual-sided chestpiece, and adjustable headset. It’s a good choice for medical professionals such as LPNs, licensed vocational nurses, certified nursing assistants, and nursing students.

    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 diaphragm and rim provide patient comfort.

    Resilient tubing retains its shape and flexibility even after folding tightly into a pocket. 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.

    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 Lightweight II S.E. stethoscope is made in the USA for consistent quality. It comes complete with large soft-sealing 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, licensed practical nurses, EMT/EMS, licensed vocational nurses, medical assistants and nursing students

    3M™ Littmann® Lightweight II S.E. Stethoscopes, Lilac Tube, 28 inch, 2453 is rated 4.2727272727272725 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from cracked tubing I bought this stethoscope 2.5 yrs ago & the tubing & ear pieces cracked. This stethoscope was really expensive but it did not last longer than some that I've purchased at one fifth of the cost. It also didn't last one fifth of the amount of time as my other stethoscopes. In addition, the replacement parts are not available! The quality and the price are very dis proportioned! It was not a good product or a good investment!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for First Responders We have been using one for the last several months. Our first responders mostly use it for BP's, but our EMT's use it for lung sounds and love it, compared to our previous used ones.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cost vs. Effect As a RT I'm always bouncing from department to department thorughout the day. This makes a heavy scope a pain in the neck, pun intended. Our department door has every Littmann scope, so i've gotten to listen through all of them. In my personal opinion I see no need to carry any other scope then the light weight. It has excellent acoutic properties which are nearly the same as the higher end scopes making this scope a steal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value and quality product! I purchased this model after using one in our student nursing classes. I feel it's a great learning stethoscope. This model replaces an older one I had.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good basic stethoscope for daily use I purchased this model today as a replacement for another Littmann stethoscope which became inoperable (I am trying to see if I can get it repaired). To be fair, I was unwilling to pay for a higher-end model (all marketed for cardiologists), but I was also unwilling to abandon the brand, as Littmann is the only type I've used consistently throughout my 30+ year career. I will be in touch regarding how effective this model is for my purposes. Thanks for making such quality tools for us to use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Littmann quality/Nice sound quality I bought the Littmann Lightweight II S.E. I haven't had this particular model before, but have owned other Littmanns prior to this. Sound quality is always there. In the store, I tried different brands, and the Littmann had the best sound quality. Having minor hearing issues, this is extremely important. I was able to hear well! I also required a lightweight variety, and this one was it! Littmann does it again!
