I would recommend to a friend
Awesome value5I'm an EMT in a busy, urban, eastern EMS system. I got this stethoscope to replace the student 'scope I got two years ago.
So far, I've been very impressed. The 'scope is lightweight, and fits easily in my thigh pocket. The head is heavy enough to cut down on outside noise, and the rubber gasket around the edge of the bell cuts down on patient discomfort from cold. The ear pieces fit well, and are threaded, so if they don't fit or are not your preferred style you can easily fix the situation.
Clarity of sound is excellent. I generally have difficulty hearing lung sounds, but I've had no trouble picking up faint sounds with this 'scope. I've never used an expensive, high end 'scope, so I can't really compare. However, it does everything I need very very well.
I think the only thing I would change is the tubing, which isn't as heavy as I'd like. Also, since its a single head design, if you use your finger to press the bell against the patient, and move your finger tip on the back of the bell, the sound of your finger moving can drown out whatever you're trying to listen to. Not really the 'scope's fault, but something to keep in mind. You can easily avoid this issue if you keep your finger still.
All in all, an excellent stethoscope for the cost, and a great alternative to some of the more "name brand" options.
