It is recommended that stethoscopes must be cleaned in-between every patient with a 70% isopropyl alcohol solution or wipe. Do not immerse the stethoscope in any liquid or subject it to any sterilization process.
Many heart and lung sounds that are difficult to hear for a variety of reasons and can be potentially missed even with normal hearing. Amplification along with ambient noise reduction helps healthcare professionals hear the sounds they need to hear.
If the acoustic performance seems to be lacking or absent it may be because you usually carry your stethoscope in a pocket or don’t clean it often, lint or dirt may accumulate and obstruct the sound pathway. To avoid debris from accumulating, give your stethoscope routine cleaning and care.

Weight of the chestpeice is one of the factors that contributes to the superior sound quality that is heard when using this product. Size also contributes to sound quality. A wider diameter surface on a chestpiece will increase sound intensity over one that is small. A wide diameter surface area on a chestpiece may contribute to sound intensity, but may also result in outside noise getting into the system.
Tubing length is measured from the top of the eartips to the bottom of the chestpiece.
