Hello, and Good morning to all. I originally posted this under the "nursing stethoscope" forum but I received no replies. Later this month, I will be interviewing for a position on a Cardiac Stepdown unit where I completed my acute care preceptorship last fall. I would like some opinions regarding the best stethoscope for cardiac nurses. I've heard that Littman's are great, however, there are so many stethoscopes produced by littman (Master Cardiology, Cardiology STC, Lightweight Classic II, etc), I don't know which one to choose. What do you use or suggest I use?
I have had my Littmann Master Cardiology for 8 years. It's a little heavier than some and doesn't fold up into a pocket well, but the earpieces are comfy and sounds are extremely clear.
