The latest technology makes this MDF® ER Premier® Stainless Steel Dual Head Adult-Pediatric Stethoscope perfect for cardiac assessments. Emergency physicians and first responders are able to deliver superior care when it matters most.
I tried using it for three days, it is bulky and heavy. It has a very large bore tubing. I have to say it has excellent acoustics. I am going to have to return it for a more user friendly model.
This is clearly one of the finest Stethoscopes that I have owned over the last 50 years! Beats Littmans/Sprague Rappaport etc. Execellent acoustics!!!
I decided to take a chance and go with the MDF ER scope instead of the Littman. I think I did okay. It has an excellent range of sound. I was able to auscultate some abnormal heart sounds on some nursing home patients much better with this scope than others I have tried (without even using the cardiac adapter that comes with it). It is well constructed and comes with the free parts for life which covers the ear pieces and diaphrams. I'm sure there are better scopes out there, but for the money I think it was a good long term purchase.
