The MDF® ProCardial® ERA® is the very first stethoscope of its kind. We promise, you’ve never seen a stethoscope like this. It is a stethoscope completely reinvented and you won’t believe how light it is. In addition to the redesigned lightweight headset and patented sound-sealing A2X tubing, it features a convertible chestpiece with 3 real bells and 3 separate diaphragms in adult, pediatric, and infant modes. Enhanced by 10 unique patents, the precisely handcrafted ProCardial® ERA® abolishes the age-old dichotomy by proving a true high-performance stethoscope can also be lightweight. The ProCardial® ERA®—a true paradigm shift.
The patented handcrafted lightweight aluminum dual-head chestpiece is precisely machined and hand polished for the highest performance and durability. The patented dual-output, full-rotation acoustic valve stem features SoundTight™ GLS technology to seal in sound, and the green indicator dot allows the user to easily identify the active sound channel. The chestpiece comes fitted with real bells and diaphragms in adult, pediatric and infant sizes allowing for quick conversions to nine different configurations. Each diaphragm features a non-chill retaining ring to provide a secure acoustic transmission for heart and lung sounds of 100Hz to 1000Hz, and the cardiology bells are crowned with non-chill bell rings to provide greater sound amplification and isolation of low frequencies (20Hz to100 Hz).

Soft silicone ComfortSeal™ eartips are phthalate-free and clear for hygienic purposes. To ensure proper fit and isolation of sound, MDF® ComfortSeal™ eartips are available in three sizes: small, regular, and large.(Pat. nos. 2010 2 0279423.9)
Ergonomax™ headset and Safetylock™
Hand polished, pre-angled aluminum headset features a patented internal dual-leaf spring construction for durability. Patented SafetyLock™ eartip adaptors lead the industry in user safety. (Pat. nos. 2008 2 0155127.0)
A2X >Constructed of latex-free and phthalate-free PVC, the patented A2X is an A-Type redesigned with an X configuration and dual input. It maintains two sound transmission channels to preserve acoustic integrity while sealing out extraneous sounds, even in high-noise conditions. The thicker, denser PVC construction prevents cracking and wearing. (Pat. nos. 2008 2 0151419.7)
While the various adult, pediatric or infant bell and diaphragm attachments are unused, they can be stored conveniently on the attachment clip. The included aluminum attachment clip can be worn on a belt or pocket to ensure that attachments are easily accessible. (Pat. nos. 2012 2 0095632.7)
