Hello everyone! My sister and I just graduated from nursing school (yes we went together!!) and she has gotten a job in the NICU. I would like to get her a new stethoscope for a gift, but I don't know if there are special ones for tiny babies or if the infant one will work. Does someone make one specifically for the NICU and if so, where can I find one? :spin: Thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to read (and hopefully answer) this for me!!

You may want to check with the NICU where she is going to work. The NICU where I work keeps a stethoscope at each baby's bedside. The nurses do not use their own stethoscopes. This cuts down on the chances of cross contamination between the babies.
