- Use an alcohol wipe to clean the head, diaphragm, and retaining ring only. Please DO NOT soak any part of your stethoscope in liquid.
- A cloth dampened with water and antibacterial soap can be used to clean any part of your UltraScope. Wipe well with a damp cloth until all soap is removed. Then dry completely.
- The tubing can be "shined" with a cloth sprayed with pledge or other non-solvent or non-petroleum distillate polish.
- Normal usage may loosen the diaphragm, retaining ring, and eartips. Check your scope before use.

- Use LIGHT pressure for HEART sounds
- Use FIRMER pressure for LUNG sounds
- Use MEDIUM pressure for taking blood pressure readings.
- Are eartips in ear canal properly? The eartips should point away from your body.
- Try using them in the other direction. Is the fit better?
- Do the metal binaurals feel twisted in your ears? Hold both the binaurals/eartips in your hands, pointed away from your body, gently push them away from you to align, using equal pressure."
Is the fit better?
- When you tap on the diaphragm, does it make a drum sound? If not, your diaphragm is loose.
- Tighten by holding head and turning Retaining Ring clockwise.
- Are the diaphragm and retaining ring still attached to the head of your scope?
- Are you pressing harder than necessary? Try lighter pressure.
- Are you in a noisy environment? Place entire palm over headpiece and apply the correct pressure using the palm of your hand.
