My poor old stethoscope has been injured! Little Blue as I called her needs fixed. 16 years ago when I graduated from nursing school, I treated myself to a Litman Master Classic. At that time I think it was around $100 or so dollars, a lot for a new grad that just started working and didn't have the extra $$$. My mother and some other people thought I was crazy spending the money on something that would get lost or stollen. I had to prove them wrong and still have her!
Fast forward...the diaphragm and ear buds need replaced.
Anyone else have a old favorite nursing supply? How long have your stethoscopes lasted?
