If you’re a medical professional and in the market for a stethoscope, the dual-head stethoscope is the way to go. Dual-head stethoscopes are generally more versatile than single headed stethoscopes as they feature both a bell and a diaphragm, making it possible to work with patients of all ages.
Some dual-head stethoscopes don’t include a bell but instead come equipped with two different sizes of diaphragm. Some professionals prefer this as the large diaphragm makes it possible to listen to a number of organs and get a basic idea of how everything is working, while the smaller diaphragm is perfect for zoning in on sounds and listening more attentively.
Bell models do have their advantages, however, as they can pick up on low-frequency sounds, making it possible to detect murmurs which may go undetected by a diaphragm of any size.
