Rod Carew is one of the greatest hitters in MLB history, a seven-time American League batting champion and was inducted to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1991. Most recently, in late 2015, Carew suffered a massive heart attack while on a golf course. Although Carew had just been given a clean bill of health shortly before his trip to the golf course, the Hall of Famer suffered a major heart attack on the course that day. Soon after, it dawned on Carew that heart problems can hit anyone at any time; this realization prompted him to reach out to the American Heart Association so that others could avoid the same fate. Carew partnered with the American Heart Association on Heart of 29, a campaign named for the jersey number he wore throughout his 19-year career with the Minnesota Twins and Anaheim Angels. The organization has since sought to raise awareness for heart disease and promotes heart health maintenance through heart walks, special baseball game nights, and awareness polos
“Today, through a partnership between MDF Instruments, Heart of 29, and the American Heart Association, we are officially offering a signature “Heart of 29” stethoscope with MDF instruments for individuals and medical professionals across the country. These stethoscopes will provide everyone with the ability to know their hearts, listen to their hearts, and schedule doctoral appointments the second they hear irregularities. In reality, we all need to visit the doctor more frequently than we do, but for a lot of people, monthly appointments just don’t fit with their busy schedules. By having this stethoscope at home for heart monitoring, people now have the ability to watch their hearts before something catastrophic befalls them.”
In collaboration with Heart of 29, MDF Instruments will also be making a contribution to the American Heart Association in support of AHA's programs to maintain healthy hearts!
"This is an outstanding value in medical equipment. I work as a PA in a large cardiology group where expertise in chest auscultation is absolutely integral to our work, and often skill is undermined by dysfunctional equipment.... This stethoscope does exactly what I need it to do with excellent precision, and though it may be less popular than its counterparts I find that it may not be only comparable but superior. I find the earpieces to be more comfortable and better at noise isolation. I can ear very clearly soft murmurs of aortic regurgitation or mitral stenosis (even though I usually have the benefit of an echocardiogram to confirm the findings!). Pericardial friction rubs, arterial bruits, the various splittings of S1 and S2, etc., are all easy to define and pick up. Rales are loud and clear. Both the bell and the diaphragm are very sensitive and clearly transduce the sound. I'm not going to keep listing the various auscultation findings that exist but you get the picture. I highly recommend this stethoscope as an alternative to the more popular "name-brand" products you frequently see around your healthcare setting but not as a budget conscious buy, rather a functionally superior product. If nothing else, it's waaaaaayy more simple and easy to use than a tunable diaphragm, which may in and of itself yield better auscultatory performance.” - Jack of All Trades
