special equipment for nicu?Register Today!
- by kjorris May 17, '07Hello 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!!
