Why is the ‘mask of shame’ not being produced any more?

Does the 'mask of shame' come with special locked on gloves to prevent texting or tweeting as well??????

Would you believe, if I can say that I used one of those stethoscopes as a G.P. back in the early 70s in a small town in the mountains of Colombia., where it was in the hospital's museum.

Fun information. I don't buy the Jedi helmet since you don't crack a skull open to do a MRI but the rest was interesting.

A lot of people would be wearing the mask of shame at any given time if its use was being enforced.

I was expecting maybe to see a chastity belt to go with the mask of shame.

A MRI does not involve opening a patient's skull. Whoever wrote that a "Jedi" helmet is used to do a MRI is either joking or misinformed. I can speak from experience since I was involved in maintaining ventilators for many MRIs of the head during my 35+ years career as a respiratory therapist.

Susan Lake-Harris, we too still use them here in Africa where Sonicaids and gels can be expensive to get.

I have a pinard which is still used today to listen to foetal heartbeats. Mine is traditional wood, though metal ones can be bought. They're part of most home birth midwives' kit as you don't need gel and a portable ultrasound. They are perfectly adequate for pre-natal checks in women experiencing uncomplicated pregnancies. I used mine during my second pregnancy for my eldest to listen to the heartbeat of his sibling-to-be.
