    a crap one runs about 40 bucks. y not invest in a littman card 3 (120) and not sink 40 bucks? that what i did and my card 3 is still brand new. keep ur box, use it for DPS and then put it in the box until ICM. stethoscopes dont rlly change much, its not like u get the newest model that is 100 times better down the road

    I have a littman cardiology also that's still brand new after 8 years. But being in antigua, heat/humidity, plus the high probability of it getting "lost/stolen" i'd go with the crap one. I know i got one with a cheap bp cuff for like 15 bucks on amazon..but that's just my 2 cents.

    If you have any close family members who are internists/family docs/peds ask them if they have any extra that med/pharmaceutical reps give. I got a free, top-notch stethoscope and I'm saving it for when I start
