If you are nursing student it is tempting to try to save money. However, you will not get the most out of your clinical experience if you do not have a quality stethoscope. I am cheap but I have learned the error of my ways. The heart sounds can be heard if you have proper placement but breath sounds and sometimes GI sounds are difficult with this stethoscope.
I bought gifts for our CNA's for national caregiver week in June. New stethoscopes for everyone. I found them on clearance and was able to get a super deal in each persons favorite color. They are going to love them.
Pretty horrible. Can't auscultate breath or heart sounds with this at all.
I am a pre-med student and needed a beginner's stethoscope to hear patients' heartbeats for a shadowing position. I can't hear anything! Even after a doctor adjusted the barrel to open the "flat side," I still cannot hear a thing. The hot pink color is very pretty and the item arrived on time, but it does not work. The earpieces are horribly uncomfortable as well! I am going to invest in a Litmann and give this to a child to use as a toy.
Received these for raffle prizes for nursing students. These are great and can be used by every student who needs to have good equipment with them at all times!
I liked the product overall. Although it is very fragile
