    OP- Not sure if you get pedi pt if you do the cardiology III would probably be better. However, I am fan of the master cardiology. I admit that I am a new nurse but this helps being new because I still love really listening and I have caught a couple murmurs that were never documented...could it be my master cardiology?

    This is not a real littmann cardio III that comes up. The REAL littmann cardio III at Amazon is 144 dollars.

    I just got my new Cardiology III and am very happy with it.

    I also have to agree with APNgonnabe. If you have peds on your unit, there is a pediatric head on the cardiology III, you have to change the head on the Master Cardiology...also the Litmann website doesn't list the master cardiology as greatly superior to the cardiology III. It gets a 10 and the cardiology III gets a nine.

    I tried out my classmate Cardiology III and it is awesome. I currently have the Littman Classic SE2. Im starting my preceptorship soon on a tele or ICU floor so Im going to upgrade to something where I dont get- anxiety r/t using a stethoscope of entry level AEB not able to hear every single murmur, click rub. Outcome: to upgrade to a superior stethoscope to hear heart sounds by Jan 2008. =D Going to hand down my old, but still reliable one to my sister who is going to start nursing school in the spring. I just purchased mine on ebay for $120 shipped new in box.

    I have a Cardiology III is just bought to replace a Classic II SE that I must have misplaced (it was getting pretty beaten up, anyway.) My unit gets a few peds admits, although they tend to be bigger kids and an adult scope has usually worked okay.

    I also have an Ultrascope. I don't love it. As advertised, I can hear breath sounds through seven layers--well, three, but I tried it out through my leather jacket and a sweater, and it does okay through sheets, gowns, and even a blanket. Impressive, but the acrylic head is like carrying a doorknob around, and I can hear my own breath on the tubing if I'm not real careful.

    I've borrowed the Master Cardiology and it is really nice. So is the Cardio III.

    The master cardiology is the way to go It is the best that i have ever had. It also comes with a pediatric attachment which is kinda neat.

    Check out the reviews of it on amazon, that's why I chose it.

    I think you have to buy the pediatric attachment separately, mine didn't come with it. It is a great stethoscope though and I also recommend it. A bit pricey but worth the money if you want one that is going to last.

    I just got my Master Cardiology in the mail. I was so excited waiting for it that I made a cozy! I had a hard time getting a decent deal in Canada, but after some shopping around I picked it up for around $250. All of the good deals won't ship to Canada it seems.
