An article in my local paper this week about how the stethoscope turned 200 this year as well as lamenting the possible down fall of the Stethoscope due to the increased use of small portable scanners and ultrasounds. There is absolutely still a place for the stethoscope. Especially in small communities and third world countries that cannot afford the new tech or where it is just not possible to use one such as a village in the Serengeti for example. Doctors need to be trained to use this invaluable tool regardless of where they learn or work. You just never know when it may be needed and there will not always be the new tech close at hand.
