  • Illustration of single-patient disposable stethoscope with the words: One patient, One stethoscope.

    One patient. One stethoscope.

    • Patients in isolation are among the most infectious and can be vulnerable and susceptible to infection. Using a single-patient stethoscope is a recommended isolation precaution that helps lower the risk of cross-contamination.¹ A single-patient stethoscope should be used with patients under isolation precautions, stay in the patient’s room while the patient is in isolation, and be disposed of when no longer needed.¹

    • Available in adult and pediatric sizes.
      Silicone Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Tapes are a special type of skin-friendly adhesive.
      Both adult and pediatric sizes are available so you can provide the same standard of care to all patients in isolation.
