Littmann Stethoscope Parts

Littmann stethoscopes are considered by many to be the best in the world.  Their acoustical performance, durability, light weight, and comfort are extremely well regarded in the medical community.

Typical Littmann replacement parts consist of:

  • 3M Double Stick Discs for securing the chestpiece to patients for surgical procedures, ambulance rides, etc.
  • 3M Littmann Stethoscope Diaphragms.  These are made from a hard, glass-epoxy resin for ultimate long term durability.  It should be noted that these are NOT tunable.  For tunable Littmann models, you will need this.
  • 3M Littmann Stethoscope Special Procedure Adaptors to get an accurate auscultation on pediatric patients, and also for small or curved areas of the body.
  • 3M Littmann Snap Tight Soft-Sealing Eartips for a comfortable fit.
  • 3M Littmann Stethoscope Nonchill Bell Sleeves.  Rubber sleeves that wrap around the cold metal bell and provide more comfort for patients.
  • 3M Littmann Stethoscope Rims, which snap onto the diaphragm side of the chespiece.
  • 3M Littmann Tunable Diaphragm and Rim Assembly.  These are for replacement of the tunable diaphragm and rim on certain Littmann models.

Littmann also offers “Stethoscope Identification Tags” for doctors to attach their name to the headset.  These are useful for hospitals and large practices, but are also great for doctors who just want their own personalized stethoscope.  The kit contains both a hand-writable tag and an engraveable plate that can be sent to their engraving service.

If you are looking to buy parts for multiple stethoscopes, consider buying a “3M Littmann Stethoscope Repair Kit,” which contains many parts for current and discontinued Littmann models.  It might be easier (and possibly cheaper) than buying the replacement parts separately.
