The MDF® Sprague Rappaport Stethoscope is five stethoscopes in one for a full range of diagnostic applications and is traditionally trusted to detect faint heart sounds and murmurs. This versatile classic design allows healthcare professionals to assess adult, pediatric, and infant patients using just one stethoscope. An ergonomic design ensures comfort for the doctor and patient, even during extended use.
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 thicker, denser, latex-free extruded PVC, the dual non-stick acoustic tubing provides insulation for superior sound transmission and seals out ambient noise while preventing the cracking and wearing that can occur from repeated use. Dual high-performance acoustic tubes are secured in place by a non-pinching, non-obtrusive chrome-plated brass acoustic tube clasp.
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.
Tried it back-to-back with the Littmann Cardiology III. Altough the Cardio III sound is a little louder and more robust/clear, this MDF Sprague Rappaport seems very close in acoustic quality. And comparing the $165 price tag of the Cardio II, this $35 stethoscope is a great value with good performance. Ear fit is not the best so ambient noise might be a probable if you're in a loud environment but it gets the job done.
Product is as advertised and a good bargain for the price.
Derable and good sound quality. I use on an Ambulance as an EMT. Not an easy place to hear anything.
The stethoscope is great. It's not too expensive, and it works great. I love the color to choose from and I didn't have to wait too long for it to ship. It comes with replacement pieces and you get replacement parts for life according to the inner paperwork.
Doctors obviously tend to go with more expensive and sophisticated ears, but for nurses and techs, these are tough to beat. The dual design membrane/bell setup is nice, and they are surprisingly comfortable to wear. Even come with replacement parts!
