A Stethoscope is an instrument used to magnify sounds that are generated from within the body! Some of the organs and areas of the body for which a stethoscope can be used to diagnose illness and problems are the following:

  • Heart
  • Lungs

  • Arteries (blood pressure)

Consider the following parts and types of Stethoscopes:

  • Bell (cup shaped part at the end of the tubbing)
  • Diaphragm (flat part at the end of the tubing with plast drum-like covering)
  • Tubing (transmits sound from the diaphragm to the earpieces)
  • Earpieces (fit into the ears to allow magnified sound to be heard)
  • Allheart Stethoscopes
  • 3M Littman Stthoscopes
