Improper Stethoscope use will reduce the acoustic seal and block sound
Before placing the tips in your ears, make sure they point forward, away from you, to align with your ear canals for comfort and maximum sound transmission.
If the fit isn't comfortable, or lacks acoustic performance, adjust the headset tension. Gently squeeze the ear tubes together to tighten or pull them apart to loosen tension.
Handy Tip: Heart murmurers often become more apparent in baby puppies at around 4-5 weeks of age when the requirement for oxygen increases dramatically. Seek professional advice for any puppy that tires more easily, is hard to wake or shows signs of discomfort.
