There is only one person on YouTube that will make a stethoscope review and make it a fun video to watch! Cheers man 😂😂❤️
roses are red

I never realised that there can be a stethoscope rewiew.
why watch pewdiepies meme review when you could watch a stethoscope review

That Medic:
They’re a god send with hyper expanded chests / high bmi patients when the sound needs to travel further. Usually have to hunt for a core medical trainees to steal one of those cardiology ones

I wish someone could send me a free stethoscope 😭😭😭😭😭😭
It's funny how the Littman Cardiology IV is the standard stethoscope, even for med students, here where I live, and yet it's like the Porsche among stethoscopes
Adnan A
Adnan A:
It’s like the Ferrari of stethoscopes 😂

Randy Cain:
I just bought one of these, and it definitely allows me to hear a bit better than the Littmann Cardiology that I've toted around for 13 years. Nice to be able to listen even better through patient gowns. I can actually auscultate the voices in people's heads by placing it ever so lightly against their temporal bone. 😂
You should compare this to the Welch Allyn that costs as four times as much if you ever manage to come across one.
Ali: Do we need an upgrade? Probably Not.
Medisave: Return my stethoscope ASAP!
My medical school put together a diagnostic kit for us and that was the stethoscope we got.
Samrat Babu Koirala
Samrat Babu Koirala:
I think they are worth the upgrade Ali. Ur residents and senior doctors notice you, you become more confident about the sound and u don't need to wonder of maybe there was, maybe there wasn't. Think that makes it worth it...
No clue why I’m watching this, I’m in my final year at school, but still a great video.
I like how he just dumps things everywhere......maybe tats how he dumps his stress

I just bought exactly the same, i thought yours was black until i saw close, and then watch the #6169 on the box.
Caribean blue w/mirror best choice in my opinion. salutes

Zulmai Khan:
I had my littmann cardiology stethoscope for 20 years, great stuff, vanished in COVID storm....sad I am
Now you will have to spend a few minutes to pick all those things off the floor. There goes your productivity :D

nimal patel:
Just wondering as I’ve seen pics on Instagram. On the bell, does the littman signs attach from each side of the bell? Pics I’ve seen looks like it detaches, I feel I’m not hearing clearly. Not sure if it’s technique or the circle needs to be removed 🤷🏽‍♂️

lmao Ali i love your honest review and how you threw the box and the manuel😂 i usually don’t like watching product reviews but yours are the best😂😂
I have had my cardiology IV (green variant) for about 15 years now and it is great and durable. A must for day to day clinical care.

Great vid!
azialif aziz
azialif aziz:
i think what would have been cool for this video would have been to try to use your "should i buy this object" framework applied to this piece of medical equipment, so we can see it being used in this ~other context~

Mariam Ebrahim:
Just got one of these as a med school gift, didn't realise it was so fancy
You forgot to mention the price. Nice review though.
Ali, I just saw you last instagram’s posts and i noticed that you went to France. Why didn’t you came to see me in Lyon, I would have loved it. Shame on you 🤣. I’ m joking of course but that would have been cool.
By the way, your videos are absolutely lit and I’ m glad to be a bilingual guy because if I had not been bilingual I would have never discovered you ! So thanks Mum and Dad !!
Doctor Nosa
Doctor Nosa:
I've had the litmann cardiology III stethoscope since medical school and it's definitely worth the purchase, agree that it's not worth upgrading if you already have one though.
