    As the title... which would be a good doppler to invest in. I don't want to spend a fortune but I would like a decent, portable doppler. Any advice? :)

    Good post ginger i was just thinkin along similar lines....
    Algeos £135 with probe
    Baileys £216 upwards minus probe
    Then prices seem to vary anything up to £500
    One would presume a doppler is a doppler and does what is says on the tin, or is it advisable to pay the extra?

    The doppler you require depends on what exactly what you would like to achieve during your vascular assessment. My suggestion is spending a little more and purchasing a doppler that has the ability to also perform the ankle and toe brachial index. I have recently conducted a reliability study ( which should be published shortly). The study involved assessing the reliability of a Doppler by hadeco. It is the hadeco smartdop 30ex. Very user friendly, and has the ability to do loads more then just listen to Doppler sounds. I think it retails for about $2500 Australian dollars.

    Hi there I think the hadeco one I use is pretty good for my need, it has a screen and it can be connected to the computer for outputting, much economical than the one with printer...
