Hearing Aids and Stethoscopes

  1. In 2009 my health insurance will start coverage for hearing aids. I need one because of hearing damage in the Navy.

    For those wearing a hearing aid what works best with a stethoscope?

    Bo, you take them out and carefully put them into your pocket.

    I'm okay with a regular GOOD steth. If your loss is more profound invest in an electronically amplified one.

    I'm pretty sure there are some that fit behind the ear with nothing in the ear canal.

    I have the Littmann 3000 electronic stethoscope. All I can say about it is, “WOW!” I have tried several different ones including Littmann’s Cardiology III model and still had problems hearing sounds. I paid about 300.00 for it, but it has been the best investment I have made thus far.
