Sharing my Passion for Medical Technology

During my career that lasted more than 40 years, I had the chance to test a lot of stethoscopes and have a pretty good grasp of what is helpful as a nurse, med student, or even seasoned doctor. 

I put a lot of time and effort into creating this content, but do not take my word as the definitive opinion. A stethoscope is just like a car. You have to test drive it first. You do not choose a stethoscope. It will choose you!

“Not all angels have wings. some have stethoscopes.”
