Stethoscope Tips

MDF Instruments® stethoscope review

Featuring Stacy and our MD One® Epoch Sugar Skull Mprint Stethoscope

Hey guys, as most of you know who follow me on Instagram, I’m a senior nursing student in my program, entering my very last semester of nursing school in January.

One of the very first things that we learn in nursing school is how to perform a head to toe assessment, and I think a really critical element to be successful in a head to toe assessment is a reliable instrument.

If you have a stethoscope that is not reliable, there’s a lot of things you can possibly miss that can be critical to the patient care and the patient’s condition at that point, so one of my biggest tips that I give a lot of students that are either entering the program or maybe having difficulties in their clinical aspect of the program or just simply ask for advice in general, is to invest in a good stethoscope. There is nothing better than to feel confident going into a patient’s room, knowing that with your instrument, you’ll be able to pick up the sounds that are not suppose to be there or if there have been any changes from the beginning of the clinical to the end of the clinical.

I think that a stethoscope is one of the things that you don’t want to take lightly or kind of go the cheap route, but the most amazing thing about my stethoscope (it’s a MDF® stethoscope. It’s one of their Mprints which is awesome because they have so many prints to choose from) is not only that it auscultes so clear but it’s not going to break your pocket, and they have free parts for life, so what more could you ask for, being a nursing student or a nurse, or in the medical profession at all.

So, head over to their site, you won’t regret it. I’ve had this for almost two years. I don’t go to a clinicals without it and I get compliments on it all the time.

My advice to you, don’t mess around with your scopes. Don’t mess around with your instruments. Go to the right place, and you won’t regret it.
