This Thursday thousands of UK students will find out if they have the required grades to gain entry to medical school. The successful ones will start their course in October and amongst the list of required items for many medical schools will be a stethoscope.
The Littmann Classic 11 SE Stethoscope has been the first choice stethoscope for most UK medical students now for many decades and still remains so. The reason is that it is a reasonably priced high quality double headed ie with a bell and a diaphram acoustic stethoscope that is ideal for medical students who need to master all the basics of auscultation.
The Littmann Dual 111 cardiology stethoscope is also a popular choice due to its superior acoustic performance particularly when listening to heart murmurs and has always been a popular choice wit final year medical students & young doctors. It also makes a good choice for medical students.
This year Littmann in their ‘Love your Littmann ‘ promotion are offering a free cardiac sounds auscultation cd with each Littmann Classic 11 Se stethoscope in the promotion and also with the Littmann Dual 111 cardiology stethoscopes in the promotion.
We have had a lot of new colours in the Littmann Classic stethsocope recently. Now we have some new colours in the Littmann Master Classic 11 SE stethsocope.

Littmann Stethoscopes remain the standard doctors choice. Littmann continues to be the medical school recommended stethoscope of choice for students.
The Littmann Classic II SE stethoscope remains the first choice, giving excellent general clinical performance and value for money. The Littmann stethoscope range is made by parent company 3M.
The Littmann Classic II SE features:
Dual headed with a patented tuneable diaphragm on one side, and a traditional bell on the other.
The tuneable diaphragm on the 3M Littmann Classic II SE Stethoscope detects high and low frequency sounds by simply adjusting the pressure used during examination. Firm pressure allows you to listen to high frequency sounds- ease off to lighter contact and the diaphragm instantly switches to let you hear lower frequency sounds (previously heard using the traditional bell).
The bell side on the 3M Littmann Classic II SE stethoscope can also be used for low frequency sounds and special examinations to detect bruits, for examination of intercostal spaces and auscultation of smaller and bony patients.
A high quality single lumen tube (71cm/28 inches), with comfortably angled anatomically correct headset and patient-friendly nonchill rim and diaphragm to ensure maximum patient comfort.
The 3M Littmann Classic II SE stethoscope features a tough, elastomer polyurethane rim on the chestpiece and crack-resistant, reinforced, PVC tubing. The tubing allows you to fold the scope easily without worry of kinking or breaking. The internal, double-leaf, binaural spring helps assure a long life and allows easy adjustment of ear-tube tension. The ear-tubes are lightweight, yet very durable.
Patented soft sealing medium ear tips designed to produce an excellent acoustic seal, offer maximum comfort (firmer ear tips are supplied with the stethoscope if you prefer). These ear tips are supplied as standard on the 3M Littmann Classic II SE Stethoscope.
Littmann offer 3 year warranty against any manufacturing defects.
