Apart from allowing medical practitioners to hear sounds emanating from the heart, stethoscopes are also used for monitoring fetal heartbeat. Manual and mechanical stethoscopes are the most widely used type of stethoscopes, the world-over. However, these stethoscopes face intense competition from advanced technology-based devices such as ultrasound auscultation systems and electronic stethoscopes. As stethoscopes constitute the most basic form of diagnostic device, they may become carriers of potentially harmful microorganisms from one patient to another.

These and other market data and trends are presented in “Stethoscopes: A Worldwide Market Intelligence Report” by BizAcumen, Inc. Our reports are designed to be most comprehensive in geographic coverage and vertical market analyses.
