- Jul 8, '10 by sn1222I have a Littmann Classic II SE in breast cancer awareness pink! I LOVE it! I havent ran into anyone with the same one yet a lot of girls in my class have the same kind but in black or dark purple, I think the pink is very lovely and fun and supports breast cancer all at the same time! I also have a matching navy blood pressure cuff that has the pink breast cancer ribbon embroidered on it!
I used to carry it on my neck but it got annoying and I realized how UNSANITARY it was.. ick! now its in my pocket
- Jul 8, '10 by lizziebordenI try not to wear it around my neck. When I'm charting, I leave the stethoscope on my desk and when I go see one of my patients, I carry the stethoscope. I started getting intense neck pain and I realized it was from the stethoscope around my neck!
- Jul 9, '10 by EarthChild1130I use only my own stethescope, and I have deep pockets so it rides in there...I'd love a belt clip. I'm a psych nurse...nothing goes around the neck! lol
- Jul 20, '10 by dad22I had a confused patient try to strangle me with my stethoscope hanging around my neck and therefore it has stayed in my pocket for 36 years! If an aide hadn't walked into the room when she did, I wouldn't be here to post this!
