Here's what makes the Classic III stethoscope stand out:

  • Tunable Stethoscope Diaphragm

    Tunable diaphragms on both the adult and pediatric sides of the chestpiece. The pediatric side is useful for small or thin patients, around bandages, and for carotid assessment.

  • Pediatric stethoscope diaphragm
    Pediatric side

    Pediatric side converts to an open bell. Just remove the single-piece diaphragm and replace it with a non-chill rim.

  • Single-piece stethoscope diaphragm

    Single-piece diaphragm is easy to attach and easy to clean because the surface is smooth without crevices.

  • The bell of the stethoscope stays clean
    Open bell

    Open bell stays clear of dirt and debris by covering it with the small diaphragm.

  • Stethoscope tubing
