I am a student who graduates in 2 weeks and I have recently accepted a position on a cardiac floor. As a graduation present my generous parents are wanting to buy me a new stethoscope to replace the cheapo one I bought in nursing school
. I am thinking of a Littmman (of course!) but there are so many to choose from! I have been eyeing a cardiac stethoscope, Littmman just released the Cardiac IV. Does anyone have any experience with this one? Is it worth the extra money? Does a specialty stethocope really make a difference?
What do you recommend?
