    What about an infant stethoscope if she's planning on staying in L&D?
    My thought exactly.

    Really you should ask her on this one. Stetoscopes are very personal and what one person likes another hates. If she is in cardiac and has a light weight AND she is moving out of cardiac I would not move up in quality. I'd get an
    infant scope.

    If she was in OB and moving to Cardiac then I would recomend you get the best possible one you could afford. I have a master cardiology. I worked in Cardiac and stepdown for years. No I use a light weight. Simply because it is lighter on my neck and I do not need a top notch scope area I am currently working.

    She certainly doesn't need it in OB. But a nice little pedi scope would be a very thoughtful addition to what she currently has.

    OMG I FOUND HIM OUT!!! LOL, ya'll, that's my husband talking about me. seriously, my birthday was yesterday, the units he is talking about, he ordered a steth for me.

    and to think,when i just saw this topic on the general nursing discussion list i was thinking "what the heck is this doing here?, this isn't on topic"

    he really should have deleted after he got his answer, b/c i found him out.
    thanks for helping him, ya'll.

    Thanks for the input! I ended up giving in and telling her what her gift was and she picked out the one she wanted. I figure it's just safer that way anyways.
