The MDF® Sprague-X Stethoscope with X-configuration dual-lumen acoustic tubing is the most advanced Sprague Rappaport used by healthcare professionals. Similar to the MDF® 767 Sprague Rappaport, it is five stethoscopes in one for a full range of diagnostic applications and is traditionally trusted to detect faint heart sounds and murmurs. The innovative, patented X-configuration tubing eliminates the rubbing of traditional Sprague Rappaport dual tubing that can cause acoustic interference. Healthcare professionals can assess adult, pediatric, and infant patients using this classic, versatile design.
Chestpiece: The handcrafted zinc-alloy dual-head convertible chestpiece is precisely machined for high performance and durability. Full-rotation dual-output acoustic valve stem with green indicator dot allows the user to easily identify the active sound channel. Using the included accessory kit, the adult and pediatric diaphragm assemblies can be removed and replaced with adult, pediatric, and infant bells.
Acoustic Tubing: Constructed of latex-free PVC, the patented 2-in-1 X-configuration non-stick acoustic tubing maintains two uninterrupted sound transmission channels to preserve acoustic integrity while sealing out extraneous sounds, even in high-noise conditions. The thicker, denser PVC construction prevents the cracking and wearing that can occur from repeated use.
AccuFit™ Headset:Adjustable headset constructed from chrome-plated brass allows the user to create an individualized fit. Soft silicone ComfortSeal™ eartips (available in standard and small sizes) are clear for hygienic purposes and conform to the ear to seal out extraneous noise while ensuring comfort during extended use. Patented SafetyLock™ eartip adaptors lead the industry in user safety.
Included Accessories: 2 extra sets ComfortSeal™ eartips, spare adult and pediatric clear PVC diaphragms, pediatric diaphragm assembly, pediatric bell, infant bell, and ID tag.
The item was recommended by an experienced doctor so assume it is very good.I was not happy with the shipping as I paid for two-day air and received it in six days. Yes, that included a weekend but did not need to pay the additional and would have received it in the same time.
Heavy, very hard tubing when it bends there is no way to straighten out the tubing and it becomes uncomfortable. Overall not a good buy, also the it never feels that it has a good fit on your ears, dont buy it.
I wanted a high-quality stethoscope that wasn't a Littmann (too likely to 'walk-away', and I dislike the tunable diaphragm). I like the Sprague-Rappaport style steths, but so many are cheap knock-offs. Not this one! It has a nice, dense dual head that really seals well and creates great acoustics. I hear really well with this steth. The 'x' configuration is wonderful - no artifacts from the tubes rubbing together. The plethora of attachments are high-quality and add to the versatility of the scope. Finally, it's also really comfortable to wear and the ear tips block outside noises well. This is a surprisingly high-quality Sprague (I didn't know there was such a thing until now!). It's also not super heavy like the traditional Spragues are. I really recommend it!
