How to Choose the Best Stethoscope Case
Choosing the right stethoscope pouch can be a difficult task given the wide range of options available in the market. We have already listed the best stethoscope cases in this review. However, if you are looking for other options, here are some things to keep in mind before buying:
Consider the stethoscope you use. Not all cases are compatible with all stethoscope brands. Check the product description to confirm compatibility of the case with your stethoscope.
Quality of the Case
Check whether the case has a hard or soft outer casing. Ideally, you want a case with a hard outer shell to protect your stethoscope and other items you will be storing from being crushed or getting damaged.
However, keep in mind that a hard case can be difficult to transport in suitcases and bags. Therefore, depending on your needs, you may want a case with a soft or hard outer cover.
The best stethoscope cases have a soft lining on the interior to keep your stethoscope safe from scratches or scrapes. Apart from the soft lining, you may want the case to have one or two mesh pockets where you can store items like medications, lights, and pens.
Some stethoscope cases come with pre-molded interiors that provide a perfect fit for specific stethoscope brands. While these molds are more protective, the design means compromising on space that could have been used to store other items such as thermometers.
Generally, stethoscope cases are designed to be easy to carry. However, you should always confirm that the case you want to buy will fit your travel bag. Alternatively, you may want to carry the stethoscope case on its own. If you opt for this, choose a case that has a belt or wristband loop.
Price and quality usually, but not always, go hand-in-hand. High-quality stethoscope cases are priced higher than low-quality ones. While price can help you determine the quality of a stethoscope, it should not be the ultimate determining factor. For example, we have high quality stethoscope cases at our store that are quite cheap.
Consider all the factors above before finally checking the price to determine which would be the best stethoscope case to buy.
