Subject: Re: [IMPROVEDX] BP measurements and Stethoscope use

Before we throw the baby out with the bathwater, we must remember that the stethoscope is the tool in the hands of our frontline providers (nurses and technicians) that may provide the first alert to the physician who is not at the bedside.  Is it feasible, or cost effective, to provide more technologically advanced tools to the thousands/millions at the bedside?
