2.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for...., December 5, 2011
This review is from: ADC® ProscopeTM 675 Pediatric Stethoscope (Misc.)
I purchased this because I am tired of borrowing my mother's Stethoscope. She is a nurse and she has one of those over priced Littman stethoscopes she uses at work in the hospital. My daughter has asthma and we use it daily to see if she is wheezing, and to check if she is moving her air well.

I figured how bad could this be? The price should have tipped me off. The sound is very "tinny", like hitting the side of an empty pop can. Plus it's way too low. You cannot make out any breath sounds and even barely the heartbeat. I will be returning it promptly. The only plus I can think of is the neon pink color is very cute, and the stethoscope itself is very lightweight. I cannot recommend this to anyone at all for home use, and definitely not in a professional medical setting.

I will continue to search for a middle ground in price and quality for a home-use stethoscope, but this is definitely bottom of the barrel.

Did you ever find a good budget stethoscope for listening for wheezing at home? Thank you.
