I got a Cardio III for my upcoming semester, and I wanted to know if anyone else on here, preferably with the same model, used a clip or holder rather than neck draping (with or without a sleeve).
From what I've gathered, wearing a steth around your neck can: get in the way, be cumbersome, act as a bacterial breeding ground, and/or stiffen the tubing - just to name a few.
Since the clips seem to be relatively cheap ($5, give or take), I figured it couldn't hurt to buy one beforehand, but I've read that the standard issue hip clip might not fit the Cardio model.
Does anyone store this model stethoscope in a holder rather than around your neck, and if so, can you pass along the brand/model information?
I would definitely be grateful for any and all feedback.
