Pink and More
Many manufacturers pair the pink stethoscopes with other pink equipment, like the Sphygmomanometer (or a blood pressure band to you and me!). A Race for the Cure pink stethoscope is also available with the iconic pink ribbon on the hearing piece, a portion of each sale going toward cancer research and prevention. This is obviously a pet cause for the medical profession making these stethoscopes a popular choice. To accommodate allergy-sensitive hospital situations, the stethoscopes are often manufactured with latex-free tubing.
The pink stethoscopes may be easily ordered from online outlets and are available at multiple price points, and from a variety of manufacturers. Very expensive stethoscopes may range up to $180, but quality ones can be found any where from $30 to $85. While offered in pink and other bright colors, these stethoscopes remain professional equipment, designed to help medical professionals get the job done right.
Not Just for the Medical Professionals
Nevertheless, there are also inexpensive versions available for layperson and home use. In particular, a $4 version of the pink stethoscope helps create a more entertaining toy medical kit for aspiring young doctors and nurses.
Parents claim these inexpensive pink stethoscopes are just as affordable, if not more so, than pre-packaged toy doctor kits. The fact that children can also hear through the pink stethoscopes make them even more fun for future doctors. And while pink and purple are popular colors for little girls, this colorful wave of medical equipment also comes in blue, green and red. In fact, new colors are becoming available all the time.
As an increasingly relaxed medical profession embraces a changing world, and their patients demand color, warmth and fun when they visit the doctor, and not just sterile, cold and black and white, don’t be surprised if the next time you visit the doctor’s office your heart and lungs get checked out with a pink stethoscope.
You can just smile and say, “Hey, where can I get one of those?”
