Do I need to buy a Stethoscope???

So guys… those of you who are currently doing your IP training will be asking yourselves this question….

Should I buy a stethoscope or not?

The university that I went to had one session on how to use a stethoscope to do cardiovascular assessments, respiratory assessments and blood pressure monitoring using a sphygmomanometer (yes perhaps the hardest word to say haha).

So when I was doing my training, I had this decision to make… should I buy a stethoscope? This was partly as the GPhCs competency criteria suggest an IP should know how to use one, and a stethoscope may not be the easiest to use, requiring some practice. 

I decided to buy one… I started researching which stethoscopes are the best to buy and went for a Littmann… the Mercedes of stethoscopes ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

Below is a link to MediSave… the website where I ordered mine from…

So guys if you have any questions… or any feedback… I look forward to hearing from you

Enjoy your new toy ๐Ÿ˜œ
