While building our medical bag for next year when we hit the road, Ryan and I made a list of all the things we would or could ever need in the bag. On that list was a Stethoscope, you never know when you will need to listen to lungs and hearts while on the road and since we don't really run to the doctor unless it's a medical emergency (which has never really happened) we thought why not just check things ourselves. So, when Passionate Care asked me to review their Premium Cardiology Stethoscope I was super excited.
The over all product is great I find that you can hear the heartbeat better with one side of the "drum/bell" than the other but I believe this is because one side is for low frequency sounds while the other is for higher sounds, and since I am no doctor I can't tell which is which but I do know the set of instructions that came with the Stethoscope really helped.
I never really noticed how affordable these pieces of medical equipment can be, while I went to nursing school for a little I never finished enough to have to purchase medical equipment such as stethoscopes. I like how this one is on the heavy side and that to me says it is made with high quality materials and is meant to be a high quality product, which again I like because I know I will have this for a long time.
I will also say that to hear a heartbeat in the comfort of your own home is pretty awesome, Maverick wouldn't sit still long enough but Sopheria and Landon loved listening to each others' hearts. It was a little educational session as well as something just really cool to do. Overall I give this a 4/5 stars it is well made, and works fantastic. I am really happy with this product.
This Premium Cardiology Stethoscope retails for $59.97 when purchased through Amazon.
