i'm enrolled in an lpn program and am going to finish in oct 2007.
i'm have mild hearing loss in my left ear and moderate hearing loss
in my right ear. i had a tube placed in my right ear which has helped my hearing some.
i need suggestions on a stethoscope that i can hear really good.
my dream is to become a nurse and i don't want this to stop me.
i'm a single mother of 2 boys and don't have a whole lot of money to experiment with different stethoscopes.

I know there are special stethoscopes people with hearing problems can get. I recently finished my med surg II clinical and a friend in the clinical is legally deaf. She has a special stethoscope that she has to use in order to hear things, but she can everything someone without a hearing problem can hear. All I know is it is very expensive. I would suggest doing a search online for hearing impaired stethoscope. Here is one that I found on allheart.com
Thinklabs ds32a Digital Electronic Stethoscope with Ambient Noise Rejection & iPod Connectivity
I think I clicked the wrong button. But while I was looking, I found these for you too.
Hearing Impaired Model E
