Research Facts
Charles J. B. Williams developed the two-piece monaural stethoscope in 1843 with a trumpet shaped chest end that fit more comfortably against the chest wall, with a removable ear piece. Became the standard design. The two pieces were used in different holes for the examination of the chest or the heart. Also sensitive enough for hearing a fetus in the womb.
