Help w Littman stethoscope colors!!

  1. 0
    I am finally getting an upgrade on my stethoscope and I cannot decide on the color!

    I was wanting the pearlized pink but I have had a pink in that shade and it got marked up by pens and is turning shades of gray.

    Since I just into the nursing program it was said it didn't matter what color so I'm having difficulty deciding between the Raspberry regular or Raspberry w rainbow finish? Is it burgundy-marroon or deep pink/purple.

    Anyone own the Littman Raspberry color w rainbow finish?
    Any regrets?
    Anyone with the pear pink? Regrets.

    Please help

    They have a raspberry with rainbow finish now for a model other than peds? When I got my rainbow ones the only ones offered were Caribbean blue Select II and black cardiology. I like the Caribbean blue and while the black is okay, I will probably upgrade that color in about ten years.

    The only concern I would have is that the pink color may stain. I think it's the Breast Cancer awareness pink that they have issues with usually and the pale lavender. I don't know if it is still an issue with the tubing they use now or if it was five years ago (my boyfriend's mom told me about the discolorations).

    I love my rainbow finishes. Children around the age of 3-6 will comment on it sometimes. The rainbow finish has lasted me about 2 years on my select and about 6 months on my cardiology. I prefer the cardiology III because it comes with a peds diaphragm but I work in the ER at the moment and I will begin volunteering on a squad again after nursing school.

    I do strongly recommend paying for engraving on the stethoscope head. Tubing is cheap so if someone steals it, they can swap out the tubing so do not pay to get it engraved there. Even with the name tags, if someone steals it they can break the name tag part off.

    I have the raspberry with rainbow and I love it. My first stethoscope was yellow and that was a mistake... stains everywhere.

    I have a Cardiology SII Rainbow Raspberry stethoscope. I was a bit disappointed when I opened the box (I ordered it online) and saw the tubing is more of deep pink/purplish instead of the hot pink it was advertised as. However, in pictures it looks hot pink o.O But other than that I am very pleased I love the Rainbow finishing on the bell and it's lightweight and fits around my neck perfectly. Also, the bell has a little rubber ring around it that keeps the bell warm Who likes an ice-cold stethoscope on their chest anyway? I have no experience with it staining. Overall, I am satisfied.

    I would love love love mine pink but I heard it is really light and will get stained so I figured with the Raspberry it would be better. Some people say its more pink and others say its more purple. Oh well I am sure I will love it anyways. Thank you.

    The Carribbean Blue does look really pretty still and that's the color I have on my select. It matches the bell a lot better in my opinion. There is a little pink in the rainbow and I don't know if the color rings are different on each individual stethoscope. Even my cardiology is more green/blue colors.

    I love the teal color. It doesn't show pen marks and I am partial to the blue-greens. I think Littman also has a nice bright orange if you want a color that really stands out.

    I have the Classic II S.E. with raspberry tubing and the rainbow finish! I absolutely love it! No regrets at all. The color is a deep pink color, but it's still pretty :-) It definitely won't get marked up or dirty like the pearl pink tubing does.
