Short and sweet, and hopefully this doesn't turn into an RT vs. RN flame war, I'm beginning school for resp. therapy this fall. Like a dummy, my last stethoscope became ruined because I left it hanging from the car mirror and the tubing cracked d/t heat.
I need a new steth and I'm willing to dish out the money to get a nice one...my last one was a Littman Lightweight II S.E. Does anyone else have any recommendations, seeing as you pulmonary nurses pay a lot of attention to lung sounds?
I'm looking at the MaxiScope but I can't tell this difference between it and the regular UltraScope (besides it costing $60 less.) Am I to understand that it is the same stethoscope, just without the designs?
