Nurses with hearing loss

  1. I'm Starting a new position in the NICU soon and I will be required to have an amplified stethoscope. I have a bilateral progressive moderate to severe sensorineural loss and currently wear somewhat outdated BTE aids. UntiI now, I have always taken my aids out to use my Littman stethoscope although I know I must be missing some sounds. Please tell me what works for you...

    I have Starkey BTEs and it works fine for me to put the stethoscope eartips in my ears as usual, as they rest at the opening of the canal, while the HA domes sit further inside the canals. I use a Littmann 3200.
