Diagnostic penlights are specialized flashlights that play an important role as a diagnostic tool for any medical professional to have on hand when performing tests. Nurses, physicians, EMTs, and medical students can use penlights to perform eye, ear, and skin examinations or to serve as emergency medical lighting in first aid response situations.
The best penlights for nurses, clinicians, and medical students are professional penlights designed for medical use, rather than tactical lights or mini torches.
What should you consider when choosing the best penlight for nurses, general practitioners, or first aid?
Pupil gauge: Many diagnostic penlights have a pupil gauge printed on one side. This pupil gauge is a diagnostic guide made up of a series of circles that progress in size, providing a simple visual comparison to a patient's pupil size. This is helpful in determining the exact nature of a patient's current condition.
Size: A diagnostic penlight is designed for medical professionals and should be small enough to slip into a pocket or be fastened onto a clipboard without seeming cumbersome and out of place.
Low lumen intensity setting: Many non-medical flashlights lack the option to dim the lumen intensity to a level that allows for a routine inspection to be performed without blinding the patient. Medical penlights, on the other hand, utilize either a low-lumen bulb, or an adjustable bulb which can be set to softly illuminate and examine pupil response without causing discomfort to the patient.
