Stethoscopes are essential in every hospital, healthcare facility and anywhere else patients go for healthcare assistance. Stethoscopes come in a variety of different versions like cardiology, electronic, platinum professional, pediatric and nurse, just to name a few. They also come in fun colors and styles for different preferences, patients, and uses. Stethoscopes have many functions in the healthcare field and are extremely handy instruments to have around, as long as you know what you are listening for.
Stethoscopes are used for listening to the lungs so the doctor can hear if you are breathing clearly and whether you are congested at all. They are also used for listening to the heart to locate heart murmurs or irregular heartbeats. Detecting irregular heartbeats is the first step in repairing heart damage and the stethoscope can find these problems more easily and affordably than other tests. The stethoscope is also used for prenatal checkups and stomach disorders. They can hear the baby’s heartbeat inside the womb, and with the right training, a medical practitioner can use a stethoscope to listen to the stomach and intestinal tract to diagnose disorders.
