If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably already started your holiday wish list of covetable finds and splurge items you’d like to see come the holidays. Making your holiday wish list is not only fun, it’s a practical timesaver that makes it incredibly simple for your friends, family, and loved ones to shop for your holiday presents.
If you’re a medical, nursing, or PA student you probably don’t have a ton of money to spend on splurge items, and practicality is key when deciding what items are worth a spot on your wish list.
ERKA stethoscopes definitely deserve your consideration if you are shopping for anyone in the medical field. We recently got up close and personal with a few of the ERKA models (check out our pictures below!) and a recent reviewer commended the high quality of these stethoscopes in a hospital setting:
“I got to work and took my new stethoscope! Quickly threw it around my neck, got my report and ran out to the floor. First patient had some diminished lung sounds and, boy, was I surprised that I could hear anything at all – TV in the room was loud and patient on the other bed was talking, but my new accessory apparently has unbelievable noise reduction qualities.
I listened to Wheezes, Ronchi and Crackles all day. While sometimes there are slight problems in distinguishing these lung sounds, it was not the case with ERKA stethoscope.”

What a wonderful time to be alive. All it takes is a Google search to find a plethora of lab coats, scrubs, and stethoscopes in all shapes, sizes, materials, and colors. Well, technically a lab coat is meant to be white to represent cleanliness and purity, but there’s nothing stopping you from making your next lab coat purchase stand out with some custom embroidery in any color of your choice!
Medelita’s lab coats and scrubs (and now scrub jackets!) can be purchased with custom name and title embroidery, which their team of embroidery artists will complete in-house for a small fee of $12. They have 18 options of embroidery thread in every color family, from blossom and bougainvillea, to teal and slate blue, to willow and seafoam.
Scrubs and scrub jackets can be embroidered too, but your color choices will be more limited to make sure the embroidery will stand out. Slate blue is one of the most popular colors for lab coat embroidery, but it would be next to impossible to see slate blue embroidery on baltic scrubs or a navy scrub jacket.
Now that Medelita has launched their new line of stethoscopes, we love the idea of getting your lab coat embroidery in a matching color as the tubing of your new stethoscope, or perhaps in complementary colors. The ERKA stethoscopes available on their website come in three different models, all comparable to Littmann models, that each available in up to 13 different tubing colors. The ERKA stethoscopes also have a solid warranty, and even come with their own stethoscope carrying case so that you don’t have to purchase that accessory separately.
