New York, NY (PRWEB) August 11, 2008 -- Today, Medexsupply, a national leader in the supply of online medical instruments and equipment announced the release of ADC 603 Limited Edition Pink Ribbon stethoscope to the health market. This stethoscope comes with a variety of new features at a very affordable price. ADC has become a popular brand name when it comes to medical equipment and its latest stethoscope is no exception. The wide spread use of ADC stethoscopes attests to their quality, versatility and performance. At Medexsupply, we have made our promotional stethoscope designed to promote breast cancer awareness.
Breast cancer is the second most common cause of deaths in North American Women and is the cancer most women fear most. Estimates from the cancer agencies indicate that close to 180,000 females will develop breast cancer this year alone. However, great advances in early diagnosis and treatment have been made in the last two decades. Current research has led to more and better treatment options, and many women are spared radical disfiguring surgeries. "We at Medexsupply strongly believe that awareness is the key to treatment of breast cancer. Our medical supplies will hopefully spread knowledge and encourage women to take charge of their own breast health, while reminding all to help support a cure for breast cancer."
While there are some excellent stethoscopes already on the market, many are not affordable or lightweight. Surveys indicate that the majority of healthcare workers want a device which is easy to use, light weight and has excellent performance - and the ADC 603 provides all that and more.
ADC 603 is a two sided chest piece which offers the latest state of the art noise reduction technology located inside the chest piece. This allows one to listen to the patient without any interference from environmental noise. The unique design of its diaphragm and bell has allowed it to be great stethoscope offering comfort to both adult patients and children. The instrument is also easy to use for any health care professional and its ergonomic design makes it easy to wear around the neck and handle.
All health care workers agree that the stethoscope must fit properly for the best performance. The better the custom design, the more freely the sound transmits to the ear from the body. The ADC 603 is widely used by many health care professionals as a general stethoscope. While it can't decipher all the heart sounds, it does function well when it comes to auscultation of the chest, heart and blood vessels anywhere in the body.
Dr Bhimji, a cardiothoracic surgeon says, "The ADC 603 is a great stethoscope. It can easily pick up the faintest murmurs in the heart, allows you to listen to the chest clearly and one can easily use it to auscultate bruits in the neck and groin. And because it does not stick out like a Littman, the chances of someone nicking it are nil."
The slightly enlarged bell easily fits into the spaces between the ribs and can augment all heart sounds. Bruits or murmurs all over the body are accentuated because the bell "cups" the skin. The Ultra sensitive diaphragm (17/8" diameter) offers superb amplification and crisp high frequency response. One does not need to press the stethoscope into the body to decipher the sounds. Unlike other stethoscopes, the bell or the diaphragm remain warm and never have the chilly feeling.
The ADC 603 is one of the most comfortable and versatile general use stethoscope manufactured today. For the price of $35, this high performing piece of equipment is a bargain. All ADC stethoscopes come with the finest manufacturers' service and a warranty package.
Through the sale of our Pink Limited edition ADC 603 Stethoscope Breast Caner Awareness Merchandise, we will donate $5 for Breast Cancer Research for each stethoscope purchased. The product is easily available online by visiting our online Medical Supply Store.
