What kind of stethoscope do you prefer?

Recommended Posts

I use an ADC as well, but can't remember what model.....had it for almost 9 years now...........I paid $11 for it and it's great, just kidding!

I do like ADC tho!

Is it me or does the sight of someone with a stethoscope wrapped around their neck in Dunkin Donuts make you want to punch them, even if it is a thousand dollar Littmann.

I still to this day don't understand carrying a stethoscope around you neck. If anyone can clarify this behvior, I am all ears. :o

I have been doing this for while and never once have I said shit, I wish I had a stethoscope, while I am getting my F'n coffee.

Only time I wear it around my neck is when I'm in the ambulance or going to an emergency call. Never anytime else, including walking into the receiving facility.

I never wear it around my neck. I have seen a violent patient use it to yank a nurse down to them and start choking them with it. So I say why give them anything they can use to get control of me.

Just wondering, was the patient a known psych patient? Psych patients play by different rules.

Nope, behaved all the 90 miles to the hospital. Don't know what triggered him. I just know I will not risk it. I keep them in pocket or jump bag.

GRX makes a great Littman Knock off and I recently lost it. Bought off EBay and thought I lost it bought a second one. Great ears cheap. It works. The Classic II I used for years is still in service to.

I was issued the "tactical" DRG puretone all black ,ninja, stealth, Mach 1 stethoscope by my unit and I have grown to like it not for the looks but that it is reliable and I actually can hear sounds with it.
