Why it is best to purchase a less expensive stethoscope when you first start your course.

  1.  Finances might be limited.  Excellent stethoscopes cost >$100.  Basic stethoscopes are just fine for starting out.
  2. It takes time to tune your ear to the sounds you need to hear.  (Most stethoscopes will help you hear blood pressures, and ‘normal’ heart and lung sounds.   When you progress through your course, you’ll learn what adventitious sounds are and how to hear them better.
  3. You will most probably lose at least 1 stethoscope across your course.  Whether this be that you’ve misplaced it, or that it was purloined by a colleague (unfortunately, this is a reality, even among qualified health care professionals).
