For those who have a stethoscope collection; how many do you own? I have 10.
21 in my collection.
6 grand total in mine 😃
I have about 7 , three good and four cheap .
I have about 23 stethoscopes. They're not all in one place so it's sometimes hard to do a mental inventory!
I‘ve got 10 different stethoscopes and more to come :3
I have 2 stethoscopes. One no-name and a Littmann Classic II S.E.
The Littmann has a very good sound and build quality. I highly recommend it, if you are looking for the classic stethoscope look.
I have 4 and all are non brands sadly?
Wow: a new (negative) record - just one digit for a post !!!
3 Littmann Cardiology III 27", 2 Littmann Cardiology III 22", 2 Littmann Cardiology II 24", 1 Littmann Classic II, 3 Sprague,
3 Fleischer - Becton/Dickson (antique)
I have 3 stesoscopes and 2 bp cuff
I have one littman master cardiology that is blue. And several cheaper ones
I used to own two. My first was a cheap Sprague stethoscope. Not very good. I had a hard time using it. I ended up giving it to a nursing student. I had upgraded to a Littmann Cardiology III which I still have and still use. I think it is 100% better.
I have one a Litmann Cardiology
I don't own any but my girlfriend who is a nurse owns 4 that I know of
Have about 10. ranging from Harvey triple head stethoscope to Littmann master cardiology stethoscope.
I've got 2 stethoscopes.
I have 4 - one very cheap one I bought years ago in a drug store, 1 that a doctor I used to email with sent me, it's probably moderate quality, a Sprague I just bought and a Littman Classic II SE I just bought.
The Littman is the best for quality, but I like the Sprague as it has a heavy chest piece. I like feeling it's weight on my chest if I just lie there with it resting on me.
If I drop dead suddenly (without time to remove certain things from my home), whoever cleans out this place is gonna wonder about some of the things they find!
3 Littmann Cardiology III 27",
I take it these really are 27"? I just bought a classic II that was advertised as 28" but was really 21.5" - they gave me a refund but I'm afraid to order another one for fear it will be shorter, too.
I have 2 Littmann Classic III, both of them black. I had one, and one day I just couldn't find it, thought I'd lost it somewhere or I gave it as a gift to some woman while drunk. So I went and bought a new one. The next day I found the old one, under the bed. Life can be funny, no?
I have 3 stethoscopes, ranging from cheap to expensive. My first was a cheap red stethoscope bought first when I started nursing, was OK but the acoustic was not very good for hearing low level sounds . When I qualified I bought a Littmann Classic III Stethoscope and then a Littmann Cardiology III black, which is my favourite and used in my former job in ITU.
In my present job I dont have to auscultate any of our patients ( I work in Endoscopy ), so not used it much lately
5 - my Littmann 3200 being the favourite.
Do you find that the 3200 works reliably all the time? I have a 3200 and sometimes it seems like it cancels out the heart sounds so all I hear is the room noise. Other times it lets me hear the heart very clearly.
Currently 6 in my possession, then my 7th is still visiting a friend in Britain! It’s my allheart cardiology, but I hardly miss it given my recently acquired Littmann cardiology IV! Hehe
I have five with the new Littmann Master Cardiology in plum being my favorite. Also have a Sprague, old Cardiology 2, older Ford-Bowles, and a lightweight. I love to play
As of today, I now have 6. 😄
As of Friday my Girlfriend now owns 6 for her collection, they are all Littmann brand and know she loves that brand and has one that is pink and shiny which is cool and she has worn it to work a few times but usually wears this black and red one she owns all the time, she has used all 6 on me!.
I have 2. I'm always tempted to keep getting more though, its addicting! How do you guys decide which one to use for exams?
I have 2, would like to get a few more.
