Stethoscope Contec S/H SC11
- Diaphragm: The flat, circular part of the chest piece is the diaphragm. It is used to listen to high-frequency sounds like lung and heart sounds. When placed on the patient’s skin, the diaphragm vibrates and transmits these sounds up the tube to the healthcare provider’s ears.
- Bell: The bell is the smaller, concave side of the chest piece. It is used to listen to lower-frequency sounds, such as certain heart murmurs. To use the bell, the healthcare provider lightly presses it against the patient’s skin, creating a seal to block out external noise while amplifying internal sounds.
Stethoscopes are indispensable tools for diagnosing and monitoring various medical conditions. They allow healthcare providers to listen to the heartbeat, lung sounds, and other bodily noises, helping them identify abnormalities or irregularities in a patient’s health. Stethoscopes come in various designs and configurations, including electronic and acoustic models, to suit different clinical needs and preferences.
