opinion on electronic stethoscopes

  1. I,like I'm sure alot of Nursing students, am trying to find a really good stethoscope. I had a Littman from school but couldn't hear a thing.

    I am trying a Ultrascope but came across electronic ones on the web. What are some of your experiences with different kinds?

    Nursing 1 ON SPRING BREAK!! YEAH!

    I have had an Adscope 656 for two years now and love it. I originally got it for EMS as it screen out engine noise and amplified lung sounds etc. They take a while to get used to but are invaluable. Since I've had mine, several docs and nurses have used it and ended up getting their own.

    Thanks so much for your advice. It makes sense that EMS would be a good source of info for trying to listen in noisy places...........duh............I swear I am brain dead.....too much F/E and pharm........lol
