Littmann Lightweight II SE Stethoscope is best for basic clinical use, primary assessment, and initial triage. However, there are several Littman Stethoscopes in the market and I hope that the information I provide below might settled some questions about the comparison between Littmann Lightweight II SE Stethoscope with other littmann stethoscope product:
Littmann Lightweight II SE Stethoscope VS Master Classic II
A Master Classic II is clear even in a place where there is a lot of ambient noise, such as a lorry. Therefore, Master Classic II is more suitable for doctors working in mobile hospitals, or other places where there are visitors, children, etc compared to Littmann Lightweight II SE Stethoscope.
Littmann Lightweight II SE Stethoscope VS Cardiology III
Cardiology III is suitable for listening to lung sounds along with apical pulses. This stethoscope is also a favorite with pediatricians, as it comes with a pediatric-sized diaphragm. This scope lacks a bell. But it has been found that by pushing down on either side of a Cardiology III, one can get the same effect as a bell. This, this all-round quality of a Cardiology III also makes it sought after by med school students compared to the Littmann Lightweight II SE Stethoscope.
Littmann Lightweight II SE Stethoscope VS Littman II Pediatric Stethoscope
As the name suggests, this is a scope meant especially for pediatrics. Although some pediatrics favor the Cardiology III, because of the latter’s superior acoustic quality, this scope comes with a bell, which is missing in the case of a Cardiology III. In pediatric setting, definitely Littmann Lightweight II SE Stethoscope is not included in one of the choice that you want to consider.
Littmann Lightweight II SE Stethoscope VS Classic III
While the Classic II is among the most popular stethoscopes, doctors prefer the Classic III when they treat patients suffering from BP. Littmann Lightweight II SE Stethoscope on the other hand, is still the best stethoscope for general purpose and blood pressure taking.
Littmann Lightweight II SE Stethoscope VS Model 3000
The manufacturers claim that Model 3000 stethoscope is technologically equipped to reduce ambient sound, while amplifying organ sounds, simultaneously. Some users claim to be attracted by innovation in these stethoscopes. They cite the example of different designs of ear-tips available, to cater to different needs of different users. They also say that the settings can be changed using one hand, leaving the other free for any other work, such as checking the blood pressure of the patient. Others claim to like the variations in size, weight, ease-of-use, or longevity. From indications, this scope could become an all-round favorite of various specialists, in the near future. On the other hand, based on the quality that is provided by Model 3000 stethoscope, Littmann Lightweight II SE Stethoscope will left far behind.
