How Can I Find a Good Amplified Stethoscope to Hear Soft Sounds?
As you probably know, there are many different types of stethoscopes available to student and health professionals. Sometimes it takes trial and error to find the right one, so it may be worthwhile to order a few and check the return policy so the ones that don’t work as well can be returned.
The best source of information on the various stethoscopes can be found at AMPHL Stethoscope Information. Here you will find articles on stethoscopes as well as the various features available. Some work with hearing aids, some with cochlear implants, etc. These websites have additional information on “The Best Amplified Stethoscope for Hard of Hearing Medical Professionals” and “Technical Considerations in Using Stethoscopes
AMPHL (Association of Medical Professionals With Hearing Losses) provides information, promotes advocacy and mentorship, and creates a network for individuals with hearing loss interested in or working in health care fields.
If you have specific questions, join the AMPHL forums and ask other healthcare professionals with hearing loss what they have used and what works and does not work for them.
