Used stethoscopes are used by many medical and healthcare professionals to diagnose and listen to heart and lung sounds of men, women, teens and pediatric patients. They've been around for many decades.
Used Stethoscopes Compared to New Stethoscopes
Used stethoscopes actually lose very little if any of their original accuracy and strength. They are manufactured to highly specific medical parameters and even though they're quite simple in design and look, they all function in just about the same way. They're essential for the practicing healthcare professional or the aspiring medical school student for determining specific heart and breathing symptoms and conditions.
It's not a negative at all to consider purchasing a used stethoscope since their durability and accuracy remains totally in tact unless they're completely abused such as by stepping on them accidentally or by intentionally trying to bend them out of shape, which almost no professional would ever attempt to do.
They can be purchased at quite inexpensive prices, even though brand new ones are not prohibitively expensive to begin with. But if a person is a financially strapped medical student and he requires some special medical equipment to get through his medical school studies including a stethoscope then buying a used one is absolutely no problem. He'll be able to diagnose and examine patients the exact same way as with a brand new one. The used model won't even look used at all.
It most likely won't even have any scratches, nicks or dents in it since it's an instrument that's used in a very highly sensitive and gentle way to begin with so it's very hard to inflict any damage on these used units if they're handled in the way they should be in the first place.
