Timesco Aluminium Pinard Foetal Stethoscope
The Timesco Aluminium Pinard Foetal Stethoscope is a pinard horn designed for listening to the heart sounds of a foetus. The hollow device measures approximately 13.5cm in length, and offers a traditional method of listening to the baby's heart.
Who Can Use the Pinard Foetal Stethoscope?
The Pinard Foetal Stethoscope is an ideal tool for use by midwives and other medical professionals. As it features a simple one-piece design, it is also suitable for home use by parents interested in listening to the sound of their baby's heart in between medical appointments.
How Does the Pinard Stethoscope Work?
The Pinard features a circular opening at one end, with a flatter round base at the other end. The opening is gently placed against the pregnant woman's abdomen, and the ear of the listener is then placed against the flatter end. As the opened end must be placed near the baby's heart for the sound to be amplified through the device, the Pinard also helps to determine the position of the baby.
