2014 Diagnostic Equipment Order Form
Sponsored by American Medical Supplies & Equipment and Welch Allyn

Be Very Aware:  There is an offer from a student organization suggesting that they are offering the same diagnostic set, but at a lower price.  We are convinced that their intentions are admirable, but there are dramatic discrepancies that you should be aware of.  Here are the facts:

1) The description of the diagnostic set is completely wrong.  The description of the otoscope is incorrect.  The description of the ophthalmoscope is incorrect (and misspelled).  The description of the rechargeable handle is incorrect.  All of the components of this diagnostic set being offered are of reduced functional capacity.  This means that they have fewer apertures, fewer filters and/or a reduced viewing area.
2) The company selling these instruments is not an authorized Welch Allyn dealer and has never serviced NSU.
3) The stethoscope offered on this site is NOT CARDIOLOGY-GRADE and WILL NOT SATISFY NSU requirements.  They suggest it is 'recommended'.  In reality, a CARDIOLOGY-GRADE Stethoscope is REQUIRED.   You will ultimately be required to purchase a CARDIOLOGY-GRADE stethoscope.
4) On their site, all sales are final with no returns or exchanges.
5) PRICING:   Their price is $469.  Our basic set is $495 which includes the higher level instruments.  No additional fees or taxes apply.  Our promotional incentive also includes FREE Lamp Upgrades, FREE Pocket Eye Chart, FREE Adult Ear Speculum, FREE Physicians Guide to EENT and a FREE Practice Eye.

In summary...the difference is $26.  For this you will get the current model instruments (not obsolete instruments), Guaranteed On-Time delivery on your first day of orientation week and all of the free promotional incentives offered.  All of this from the same company that has been servicing NSU since 1987.  If you have any questions whatsoever, contact the Welch Allyn Rep, Steven Bakalar, at 954-684-3212 or steve.bakalar@welchallyn.com.

Blood Pressure is, by far, the most commonly performed and most fundamental of all traditional vital signs acquired during a patient encounter.  Hypertension and CardioVascular disease affect nearly 75 million Americans and the sphygmomanometer will be your tool for early detection of this silent killer.  It is vitally important for you to be proficient at acquiring accurate BP readings and, therefore, a quality BP gauge, or Sphygmomanometer, is required.

Your stethoscope will be your closest companion throughout your entire career as a medical practitioner.    There's far more to a stethoscope than you might imagine so you are urged to review the extensive information provided so you can make an educated decision.  When it comes to stethoscopes, the name is least important.  Focus on Flexibility, Serviceability, Comfort and Sound Quality.  There ARE differences.
You are being offered three industry-leading stethoscope products which are all cardiology-grade products yet may differ slightly according to acoustic frequency ranges, included accessories, customization ability, warranty coverage and price.  Pros and Cons of each item are provided underneath their description.

The DLX CARDIOLOGY Stethoscope would be considered accoustically superior to the other two options as it is made of TRUMPET BRASS instead of standard stainless steel and, therefore, conducts sound better and eliminates unwanted ambient noise.  It also includes multiple accessories and a conversion kit.

You elected to purchase a DIAGNOSTIC SET and, therefore, the Adult Disposable Otoscope Speculum and Pocket Eye Chart have been removed from the list of miscellaneous items below.  These items are FREE with the purchase of a diagnostic and we don't want you to pay for them when you can get them for FREE!
