I need advice on dopplers

  1. Hello, I know that you all have got to have preferences on who makes a good doppler, and I would like to hear them.

    specifically, which brand do you love, which is durable, and which ones stink.

    I am most interested in how they relate to vascular use.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you are talking about the bedside doppler stethoscope like you use to check peripheral circulation the only one I am familiar with is Cardionics.

    The one I had was an older model and the sensing membrane left a lot to be desired. They have improved it on the newer models. It is larger and more like the diaphragm on a stethoscope. The batteries were also very difficult to access.

    If you refer to OB dopplers, I have no idea. Nor have I about the B-mode type that are used in vascular labs.
