The Littmann Lightweight II S.E. is the choice for basic clinical use, primary assessment, and initial triage. This design offers a higher quality alternative to common Sprague's and nurse stethoscopes. This general-purpose, entry-level stethoscope is an excellent, affordable choice for basic blood-pressure and limited physical assessment. Littmann quality is apparent from the soft-sealing ear tips down to the combination bell/diaphragm chest piece.
