One of the most crucial pieces of medical diagnostic equipment, the medical stethoscope is an absolute necessity in all medical and care environments. A classic stethoscope is an acoustic device typically used to monitor heartbeat, blood flow and breathing for signs of abnormalities. This is executed by placing a small metal diaphragm over the patient’s breastbone, through which sound vibrations travel from the diaphragm through eartubes and into an examiner’s ear. The rubber earpieces through which the sound travels utilise a seal to create an acoustic effect within the ear, subsequently allowing the examiner to hear the body’s internal workings. The medical stethoscope is also commonly used in combination with other medical diagnostic equipment (the sphygmomanometer) to assess blood pressure.
A dual head stethoscope (a popular feature of the Littmann quality stethoscope), features a diaphragm with a cupped and flattened side, both of which listen to differing sound frequencies. The cupped side focuses on low frequencies from the lungs, whilst the flattened side listens to high frequencies from the heart.
