    just wanted to share this tip with anyone usuing a doppler. the other day i ran out of gel and went into panick mode as i wanted to have a listen. i tried moisture cream but seems anything thick and not clear wouldnt work and i came up with......HAIR GEL! it works better than the original doppler gel i had. and it is dirt cheap.. you can get cheap stuff here at the dollar store for a buck! thought i should share.

    i work in a surgery and thankfully have the use of the practice Doppler and gels. In the surgery they use KY jelly if the proper jelly isnt around. Not sure how expensive this is though x

    I got some off ebay really cheap. Can random gels/lotions not ruin the doppler? as thats what mine said in the instructions. Anyone know if this is true? or yet another money making plan?

    As long as it isn't oil based, you should be fine. Water based is good, gel or lotion, etc. Its the oil that damages the material.
