The cardiology master is a bit better than the III. Makes my life easier as it makes intubation and auscultation in a noisy environment so much easier. I've definitely picked up more murmurs and bruits with this as well, which has changed my management in a lot of cases. But I'm sure if I took more time listening with the III, the difference would be negligible.

If your tubing cracked and is still under warranty, you can send it in to 3M and they will replace the tubing for you for like $5 or so. My tubing also cracked, so I just gave my stethoscope to my kiddo as a toy as it was out of warranty (although I'm sure it still would have been pretty cheap to send in for repair).
Lol, glad your not my doctor if you need a stethoscope to intubate.

Good price.*

Would recommend Cardiology IV for versatility compared to Master Cardiology (dedicated bell) but don't use either enough to tell the difference.

I think you can register your stethoscope on the Littmann website to extend your warranty to 7 years or so.

*To be honest, there is such a huge mark-up of these items that it realistically should only be worth $30-50 max.

Idk if you're being sarcastic or not, but i'll just take my naive side and say that you kinda need to auscultate post intubation for at least a bilateral air entry prior arrival of portable CXR for final confirmation and readjustment of the ETT.

As for the warranty, my Classic III is currently serving me well. I bought in 2015, and i cracked the tubing badly after 3 years of wearing it over my neck. I also chipped a part of the small bell. Contacted 3M, paid 15$ to have it shipped, and they cleaned, changed my tubing, changed my small bell plastic piece, oiled it, and resent it to me. It's literally brand new now. 3M warranty is amazing, and for Classic III, it's 5 years warranty.

Intubation and auscultation are 2 different things, and there are multiple other ways to confirm placement.

WTF are doctors doing here, I thought RFD was for cheapskates like me.
BTW Docs how is this deal and reliability. Don't want to get blood pressure getting wrong readings.
I keep hearing the most accurate ones are the manual ones. Do these have to be calibrated every once in a while?

I guess I’m just dumb then, but when you intubating someone during transport on the back of an ambulance, sometimes your stethoscope is one of the best tools to confirm placement and for reassessment of placement...and with road noise and weather noise, sometimes the improved ability to auscultate those breath sounds becomes important...

But, hey, maybe I’m just not as skilled and advanced as you are in your practice...fortunately all my patients have survived during these instances!!!

That's like saying direct laryngoscopy is different than intubation. They're 2 different things but related. And there is likely no easier and more definitive way to confirm placement than with auscultation .

My cardiology III also broke after an honourable life and I have been using a Classic in the meantime too. Not sure what your experience has been with the Classic but I find it severely lacking. I've used the Master Cardiology and while it is good you cannot expect to use it effectively on small adults or pediatric patients (the diaphragm is even larger than the adult diaphragm on the Cardiology series). I deal with all ages so I sprang for the Cardiology IV. Presumably the Cardiology IV will be similar to the Cardiology III, which I find otherwise comparable to the Master Cardiology. I wouldn't go for the Classic, III or otherwise, unless you don't really need to do a proper exam.

Thank you OP, and feel free to update your post with the Cardiology IV on sale for $160 and up: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01LZW1T23/ref ... =UTF8&th=1
Thanks! Updated the post!

Thanks picked up a master to have in the Lexus glove box. Twice in the past month I've ran into patients not feeling well at the grocery store. Be great to have one in the car for these odd visits as I generally don't keep a medical bag in the car.
Mine is for the Mercedes glove box. My second Mercedes.
