· This kit may be purchased at VetText.

Stethoscope

· A stethoscope will be needed for activities during Foundations as well as any activities in the Veterinary Teaching Hospital. However, we understand that this is a large purchase and we would like you to research your options before purchasing by asking faculty and other students in the PVM program. Stethoscopes are available online and at VetText

· Tips for choosing a stethoscope:

o Any good quality (cardiology) Littman or Tycos stethoscope, two examples below:

§ Littman Master Cardiology

§ Littman Cardiology IV

o Regardless of manufacturer:

§ Tubing length 22” (longer tubing attenuates the sounds)

§ Must have both diaphragm and bell (or tunable chest piece to provide equivalent)

§ Dual tubing contained within a single tube

o Avoid:

§ triple headed chest piece

§ electronic enhancement

· Professor’s Note: “We need students to bring a stethoscope for the PE skills labs in Foundations, but it is ok to borrow one for those sessions.”
