Students can get a free student kit from 3M. Includes a heart/lung sounds CD, an extra set of eartips, and an engravable nameplate.

Refurbishing this through 3M when parts get old/crunchy (mine lasted about 10 years) costs about $60 including shipping just FYI. Basically they replace everything except for the metal head

I am starting RN school in a couple of weeks. Is this overkill for a student?

I still use my Classic s.e. that I used in nursing school. I'm upgrading now that I'm able to recognize a bit more cardiac sounds.

It has a tunable diaphragm. Most people don't need that. Plus it's relatively heavy. I'm pretty sure I actually hear more with cheaper stethoscopes.
however, mine is essentially used for documentation purposes. I'm sure a cardiologist would have a different opinion.

When I started school they said a $20 set was fine

Not a bad price for someone who NEEDS it, but i have the Classic II SE. I think that is pretty good for most people in the medical field.

This is the stethoscope that medical students should get. Perfect timing since many schools are starting soon.

It is. Unlike a doctor's yours will get misplaced and "borrowed" by another nurse or CNA. Besides all you need to know is does he have a pulse and are his lungs clear, not anything about his cardiac output. Just get a $10 one on eBay.

I'm an EMT in my city. I have littmann cardiac scope. It's so clear, it blows away the cheap ones. I can't hear jack on a crap scope. Too much background noise. Other reason I bought it, class got them at cost so how could I pass it up.

You won't regret buying it.

For school buy an affordable stethoscope, you will not need anything that sensitive unless you continue to a specialty. I have had many stethoscopes disappear while at work , the really good ones disappear faster.

Medical resident here, I bought a Classic II SE at the beginning of med school and it's still going strong. I know of some practicing cardiologists who still use the Classic II. The Cardiology III is nice, and I think it provides more detailed sound but with lower amplification (just my own observation). Not really worth double the price of the Classic, IMO. Also, the Cardiology III tends to grow legs and walk away.

Good price for a great device. I've noticed a big difference between this (III) vs the (II) series. If you can afford it, buy it.

Yes.

For students, a stethoscope is only needed to hear rales and wheezes.
"If I wanted to know what the lungs sound like, I would get an X-ray. If I wanted to know what the lungs looked like I would get a ct"

And as for heart sounds, good luck hearing an s3 or s4 outside of a quiet private office. And good luck detecting a rub or gallop and recognizing that is what it is.

Long story short, get the sprague. It looks cheap, it is cheap, but it's price to performance ratio for a student makes up for the inevitable loss/theft.
