How do I know if my stethoscope is on diaphragm or bell mode?
- Look on the chest piece diagram below for the sound indicator, for example on the photo the bell mode is alighned with the sound indicator so it's on bell mode.
- Scratch, do not tap, the chest piece to test whether it is active. Tapping can be heard on both active and inactive sides, and will confuse you.
