A single head stethoscope is a diagnostic device with a one-sided chestpiece and an adjustable diaphragm. It is designed for blood pressure assessment and general auscultation, and is convenient for those with a heavy workload as it allows for easy shift between high and low frequency sounds. It is distinct from dual head stethoscopes, which have two heads on each side of the chest piece, with the larger one being flatter and better for high frequency sounds.
Single-head stethoscopes are designed for blood pressure assessment and general auscultation. They feature a low profile chestpiece that easily fits under a cuff for blood pressure readings and have dual chamber chestpieces and tube designs that enable stereo sound.
