I posted this in the pre-D.O. forum and they suggested I move it here. So without further ado...

A cardiologist recommended the Rappaport-Sprague stethoscope, but I have read that this is no longer made. I found a "Sprague Rappaport" by MDF http://shop.mdfdirect.com/product.sc?productId=11, but I am not sure this is the same thing. Can anyone enlighten me? If the original Rappaport-Sprague is not available, what do you recommend in its place?

My friend says her father still orders these, and I am trying to find out where and whether they are the same thing. :confused:

The RS stethoscope is any basic stethoscope with the dual tube into single bell design. You can order one from anywhere, I have several. They are not as good as my Welch elite but then again everything depends on the listener. If you want to try a cheap one look on allheart.com.

P.S. The MDF is an excelent scope but for the same money you can get a Welch on ebay.
