Wondering what to give the doctor, nurse, or med student in your life? Here's five of the best holiday gift ideas that any medical professional is sure to love.
1. A Stylish Medical Bag
Doctors and nurses can't just throw their expensive medical equipment into any bag - a bag designed specifically to transport all the essentials is a must-have. Look for a bag that has padded pockets for blood pressure cuffs and stethoscopes, a comfy shoulder strap, and built-in pockets and elastic bands to hold all the necessary gear. We like options allheart.com.
2. Fresh Treads (scrubs) for Work
With a rainbow of colors, prints, sizes, and styles, a fresh work wardrobe from Infinity Scrubs by Cherokee is always a welcome gift.
3. Eko CORE Digital Stethoscope
Put the ears of a trained cardiologist in the hands of any medical professional or student with an FDA-cleared Eko CORE Digital Stethoscope. Amplify sounds 40x and capture, visualize, and save them, or securely share sounds for a second opinion.
4. Eko DUO ECG + Digital Stethoscope
The DUO ECG + Digital Stethoscope is an FDA-cleared electronic stethoscope plus handheld ECG that amplifies heart sounds up to 60x. This is the first digital stethoscope integrating amplified sound with ECG, enabling medical professionals to get a comprehensive view of cardiovascular function without a costly, time-consuming work-up.
5. A Relaxing Day at the Spa
Nurses and doctors work long hours, are on their feet most of the time, and are always focused on the needs of their patients - gift them a day of peace and rejuvenation with Massage Envy. Studies have shown that sauna use is linked to longer life and fewer fatal heart problems and massage is proven to reduce stress, which has major heart benefits. So while you're at it, pick one up for yourself!
