Ear Problems Caused By Stethoscopes

The stethoscope is the commonly used symbol of the medical profession. We are all used to seeing doctors with them hanging round their necks.  Surprisingly their days are numbered due to the advent of hand-held ultrasound machines.  Developed by the US military they are small enough to fit in a large pocket.  They are far better at all the things that stethoscopes do.

This is a shame for cultural and traditional reasons but the ears of doctors may well be healthier as a result.  Repeatedly placing the earbuds in the ears can introduce a large number of bugs into the ears.  This leads to ear infections.  'Can I borrow your stethoscope' are words that no junior doctor wants to hear from their mucky-eared consultant.  Unfortunately the tiny machines are still very expensive. This means they are still only available to cardiologists with gold Rolls Royces.

Until we have handheld ultrasound we have the ZenPlugs Molded Stethoscope Earpiece Kit.  With it we will have comfortable, hygienic earpieces.  Because they are separately molded to each ear they are comfortable and don't fit anyone else's ears. They also contain Steritouch.  This is a brilliant antibacterial compound proven to kill all the germs known to cause ear infections. Stethoscope-associated otitis externa is a recognised medical condition. It can be prevented by using ZenPlugs' Earpieces.

ZenPlugs have given us the only molded earpieces for stethoscopes that can be made from a kit. This means you can enjoy all the comfort and improvement in sound that they offer without the high price of having your molds made at the audiologist.  You also get to personalise your stethoscope so no-one will pick it up by mistake.  Thieves are also likely to think twice about taking them because they clearly won't fit and will be easier to identify.
