Are stethoscopes going the way of the dodo?
Some experts are saying it's time for doctors to toss their stethoscopes in the trash. Dr. Jagat Narula, associate dean for global affairs at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, and Dr. Bret Nelson, associate professor of emergency medicine at Mount Sinai, wrote in an editorial in the December 2013 issue of Global Heart that they believe doctors in the near future will hang up their stethoscopes in exchange for portable ultrasound devices.
