A stethoscope helps doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers listen to the sound of your lungs and heart when checking your blood pressure and check breath sounds. They are a useful tool for home use to help check your heartbeat or blood pressure.

Stethoscopes are an essential part of work for general practitioners, pediatricians, cardiologists, nurses, and veterinarians.

Types of Stethoscopes
A traditional stethoscope has three parts: the head, chest piece, and tubing. The chest piece is the part that comes in contact with the patient's skin. The chest piece is made up of a diaphragm, bell, and base. The tubing connects the head and chest pieces and is usually made of PVC, rubber, or latex. The head is the part of the stethoscope with the ear tips and tubes.

If you are going to use the stethoscope for a variety of reasons, look for one with a convertible chest piece. This allows you to use interchangeable chest piece fittings, usually including specific ones for adults and children.

You can typically find a single-head or dual-head stethoscope. A double head usually provides more accurate listening and helps prevent loss of volume. It helps the user listen to sounds coming from the heart, lungs, and from arteries, and abdomen.

A teaching stethoscope can be used by a student and medical professional at the same time. A teaching stethoscope includes two headsets to help identify, listen to, and study heart, lung, and other body sounds.

Stethoscope Accessories

Anti-Chill Ring: An anti-chill ring on a stethoscope is usually more comfortable for patients. They are useful for pediatric patients.

Soft ear tips:Soft ear tips are more comfortable to wear and can offer increased sound insulation.
