Doctor Supplies: Stethoscope for Hearing Aids

When medical professionals who use stethoscopes experience hearing loss, a critical component to their career is compromised as well as the safety of the patients they serve. 

There are many stethoscope solutions for those with hearing loss and those who wear hearing aids.  

Amplified Stethoscopes

For medical professionals with mild hearing loss who do not wear hearing aids or for medical professionals who choose to remove their hearing aids during stethoscope use, an option is to use an amplified stethoscope.

There are many products available and on average amplified stethoscopes amplify between 15-50 dB gain depending upon the product being used.

Hearing Aids and Stethoscopes

For medical professionals who do not want to remove their hearing aids and use of an amplified stethoscope is required, the amplified stethoscope must be reconfigured with additional adaptors/accessories in order to work with the hearing aids.

Stethoscope options for persons who wear hearing aids will vary based on the type or style of hearing aids the medical professional wears.
