Light weight

It's light weight and the tubing is thick. I really, really wanted to like it. I sent a msg to MDF to try to understand how this was different from the lower cost version. Basically, what I got was it was better and had amazing sound transmission. That's not the case. I work in EMS/Critical Care Transport and wanted something lighter, but that could block out the beeps, pumps, vents, and alarms. This scope is probably very well suited for a clinic or non-acute care setting...but the price would probably not be worth it. I don't know why someone hasn't made a stainless steel sprague like the old HPs. Sorry, MDF... I just can't recommend this to my colleagues

MDF ProCardial ERA Lightweight Dual Head Stethoscope

This was a gift to a niece studying to be a Midwife - she has said that it is a great piece of kit and would recommend it to all of her fellow students

Very nice

This is an excellent stethoscope. Chest sounds are extremely clear. Don't waste money on the engraving. The only thing engraved is one of the removable head pieces.

Works well in a variety of settings.

I used this for my OB rotation in nursing school and it worked well. I will use it again for peds. It's lighter than my MDF one stethoscope, so that took a little getting used to. I like the scope and the fact that it is so convertible.

Excellent sound, great for Peds/Adults. Needs improved flex

Positives: -Low artifact compared to other comparable stethoscopes -Great sound -Great for Pediatrics and adult populations Negative -Very not happy that came out of the box with a bow/bend in the stethoscope. Absolutely love the positives that I listed, but this one negative is blatantly noticeable. Because of the positives though, I still recommend this brand and specific stethoscope over other brands.

Excellent craftsmanship, really good acoustic, stylish

My Review

For my personal tastes this stethoscope is too light. I just prefer a little bit heavier. Otherwise the quality of sound is superb as with most MDF products. The ability to change the bells is great and easy. Overall it is a good product. It just does not fit what I guess I like.

CLASSICAL REINVENTION

The MDF® ProCardial® ERA® is the very first stethoscope of its kind. We promise, you’ve never seen a stethoscope like this and you won’t believe how light it is. In addition to the redesigned lightweight headset and patented sound-sealing A2X tubing, it features a convertible chestpiece with 3 real bells and 3 separate diaphragms in adult, pediatric, and infant modes.

Constructed of latex-free PVC, the patented A2X is an A-Type redesigned with an X configuration and dual input.
