Stethoscope. Stethoscope used to listen to noises made within the body by the heart, lungs and digestive system. It is comprised of two earpieces (at top), tubing, and a round sound-detecting device (silver). The sound-detecting device has a wide diameter diaphragm to listen to high-pitched sounds; the smaller concave bell side with hole is used to listen to low-pitched sounds. Internal noises can be heard by pressing the device against a patient's body. A stethoscope is useful in the diagnosis of respiratory ailments of the lungs, abnormalities of the heart, and movements in the digestive system.
