If I get into my nursing program (my odds are very very good but I'm trying not to count chickens before they hatch) I'm going to reward myself with a good quality stethoscope because I'm expected to have my own for clinicals. I've been working very hard in school to keep my grades at a 4.0 and I deserve a reward. Odds are that I will need to add amplification to it, but I'm wanting to try the Littman Cardiology IV first as I've heard that many people are able to avoid amplification with this stethoscope and it's also compatible with the Eko amplification unit so that I can add amplification down the road if I discover that I do need it.
I have been shopping around for stethoscopes, as I expect to hear sometime in the next 14 days about my program. I think I really like the plum tubing, but computer monitor photos are very different from computer to computer and some photos are showing it a more pink-purple than others, which show it as a more true purple.
If you have seen the Littman plum tubing in person, would you say it's a very pink-purple, a pink-purple, a true purple, a blue-purple or a very blue-purple. If you can compare it to a colour found in a common logo or object (eggplant, specific variety of plum, specific flower) that would also help me out a lot. I'm particular about purples.
Thanks for any help.
