Ideal design, size, and acoustic performance for pediatric use.

The 3M Littmann® Classic II Pediatric Stethoscope is based on the proven design of Littmann Classic stethoscopes. It’s a dependable, hard-working clinical tool for physical assessment, monitoring, and diagnosis of smaller patients.


The 3M Littmann® Classic II Pediatric Stethoscope is specially designed for use on smaller patients. It delivers high acoustic sensitivity, through its dual-sided chestpiece, for both high and low frequency sounds. It is used by medical professionals and students alike to identify, listen to, and study heart, lung, and other body sounds for physical assessment and diagnosis in pediatric patients.



  • Dual-sided chestpiece with small 3.3cm diaphragm is ideal for pediatric patients.
  • Versatile chestpiece design provides high acoustic sensitivity with both a floating diaphragm and open bell.
  • Non-chill rim and diaphragm provide patient comfort.
  • Soft-sealing eartips provide an excellent acoustic seal and comfortable fit.
  • Headset is easily adjusted for individual fit and comfort. Angled eartubes align with ear canals.


Commonly Asked Questions


Question: Will either the pediatric or infant stethoscope offer the same sound quality and intensity as the Cardiology IV when using the small side?


Answer: The diameter of the pediatric diaphragm is the same as that of the pediatric stethoscope. The tunable diaphragm, along with the design of the small side of the Littmann Cardiology III chestpiece, offers better sound especially in the low-frequency end of the spectrum. Sound intensity of the Littmann Cardiology IV stethoscope is greater than that found in the infant stethoscope. The need for good surface contact at the auscultation site would be the reason a practitioner would use a smaller stethoscope. The Littmann Cardiology IV offers greater versatility than either the Littmann Infant or Pediatric stethoscope.


Question: Can I use the infant stethoscope on neonates?


Answer: Most neonatal specialists report that the diameter of the bell and diaphragm on this model is still too large to get good surface contact. If the infant is larger, the Littmann Classic II Infant model would be appropriate.

Headset tension is easily adjusted for head size and comfort by squeezing together or pulling apart the eartubes. Snap-tight, soft-sealing eartips conform to individual ears for an excellent acoustic seal and comfortable fit. Eartips snap firmly onto the ends of the eartubes and, for safety, require a significant effort to remove.


Resilient next-generation tubing retains its shape and flexibility even after folding tightly into a pocket. It provides longer stethoscope life due to improved resistance to skin oils and alcohol, and is less likely to pick up stains. Next-generation tubing is not made with natural rubber latex, a benefit to sensitive medical professionals and their patients. And, to play its part in the protection of human health and the environment, the next-generation tubing does not contain phthalate plasticizers.
