    Sup SDN'ers~

    I was just wondering if you guys/gals new any websites where I could get a good deal on a stethoscope?? I know Littman is a good brand but is there a certain model that works really well?? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Littman III or Master cardiology by littman. As long as you are at a good site (, the more it costs, the better it is. You should spend around 130 for the littman III.

    The cardio- thoracic surgeon that I work with told me not yet to buy a cardio scope.He told me to wait until residency-and do not buy anything that you can not replace! He did tell me not to buy the cheapest one either. Mine was a Littman II SE.It was $100. The vascular surgeon said that if you are good at what you do, (as long as they are not the cheap $20 nursing ones) any will work (unless you are a cardiologist,etc)even in finding those difficult to find murmurs. Hope that helps!
