Description
Diagnostic set composed of bronchoscopic, endoscopic and sigmoidoscopic instruments in a wooden case; the wooden case (a) is rectangular with a lid hinged onto the base with two hinges at the back and a lock at the front; the inside of the lid has pieces of wood with metal clasps attached so as to hold instruments securely in place; the inside bottom of the case also has attached pieces of wood with metal clasps designed to hold instruments securely in place; a rectangular wooden tray (b) fits on top of the lower level of instruments and houses four instruments; the front section of the bottom of the case is segmented off with a wooden panel and also houses instruments; the centre of the front section is segmented off to form a small box that has a wooden lid with a small ivory knob (c); the section to right of the centre has a small rectangular tray (d) that holds instruments; this tray sits over a bottom section also designed to store instruments; both trays have small metal handles at their left and right sides that pull up for use; the front edge of the case has two small ivory pieces set into the wood; manufacturing information has been carved into these ivory pieces; the top of the case holds seven metal instruments (e-k); one piece is a metal handle for universal grasping and cutting tips; this handle (e) has two long handles joined into a V-shape with a hinge; the top of the right handle has a flat, rounded bar attached, which anchors the user's thumb when moving the handle; there are two flat tension bars that join together between the handles and push them back apart after they have been squeezed together; beyond the hinge is a cylindrical section with an open tip and a flat oval threaded key below that; this is designed so that a tip can be put into the cylindrical section, then held in place when the key is tightened; one of the tips is (f) laryngeal forceps; these forceps consist of joined halves that form a long cylindrical piece with a threaded end and a tip with hinged opposable jaws; the jaws are rounded slightly outwards and have two and one sharp teeth at their tips that interlock when closed; the inner edges of the tips are serrated with a groove in the centre; the laryngeal forcep tip (f) was screwed into the handle (e); the jaws of the laryngeal forceps will open and close when the handle is opened and closed; there is another laryngeal forcep tip (g) which is very similar to (f), but is longer; this forcep can also be screwed into the handle; a third laryngeal forcep tip (h) is also similar to (f), but shorter in length; all three tips of the forceps (f-h) have the same 2/1 interlocking teeth and inner edges, and all three fit into the handle; the top of the case also holds (i) a pair of shears; these shears have handles made of two long halves with rounded ends joined into a V-shape with a hinge at the other end; there are two flat tension bars that join together between the handles and push them back apart after they have been squeezed together; beyond the hinge at the top, the right handle tapers to form a long, cylindrical two-piece shaft that has cutting blades at their tips; the tips flare outwards and flatten into blades with rounded ends; the top blade has a sharp, straight cutting edge while the bottom blade is serrated; both blades have flat inner edges; when the handles open and close, the top blade raises and lowers while the bottom blade stays fixed; the top of the case holds two bronchoscopic sponge holders (j,k); both consist of a solid, narrow cylindrical bar that splits in half at the tip end; the two halves curve outwards, then back inwards to join together with the bar and allows the teeth to open and close; the other end of the bar has a threaded end; for (j) the end is threaded, and for (k) the end is cylindrical, hollow and of a larger diameter than the bar; the inside of this piece is threaded; the upper tray (b) in the bottom of the box has four sigmoidoscopes with obturators (l-s); the sigmoidoscopes l, n, p and r all consist of a length of hollow cylindrical metal with open ends; the tip end tapers outwards slightly, then back in and has a wide, round, open end; the other end has a rounded lip and collar and an open, round end; the obturators m, o, q and s fit into the sigmoidoscopes in pairs (l,m), (n,o), (p,q) and (r,s) with the diameters getting successively slightly larger; the collars on the sigmoidoscopes are all the same size, while the main length varies slightly in diameter; the obturators all consist of a length of hollow cylindrical metal with closed ends; the tip end is closed and rounded to a blunt tip; the other end is closed and has a cap that has a rounded lip and curves outwards; there is an open loop handle attached to the outer centre of the cap; the caps on the obturators are all the same size, while the main length varies slightly in diameter; all of the sigmoidoscopes have an incremented scale stamped into the metal on the outer side; the bottom of the box houses seven instruments; these include a light source (t) with bulb cover (u); the light source has a cylindrical metal main section that has a flat, closed bakelite bottom with two short cylindrical solid metal prongs coming out of it; the top end has an attached light bulb, made of metal and glass, in a rounded shape; there is a hinged attachment that fits above the top; this piece is made of metal and is semicylindrical with an open front, a closed, rounded back and a closed, flat top; the inside of the top has an attached mirror that can be adjusted with a screw attachment above it that moves it up or down; the back of the hinged attachment has a raised short hollow cylindrical piece that allows the user to look through; there is a round on/off switch on the main body of the light source at the back; the front of the main body has an attachment at the top, which consists of a short length of cylindrical metal attached at a 90° angle, and another short length of hollow, square metal attached to this, also at a 90° angle, and going upwards; the upright section is designed to hold extension bronchoscopes (v-aa) and has a screw attachment near the top that can be screwed in to hold the bronchoscopes securely when in plaqce; the light bulb in the light source is protected by a bulb cover (u); this consists of a cylindrical, hollow metal piece with a round open bottom and a top that has an attached piece of clear glass that is rounded upwards; the bulb cover fits over and protects the light bulb and is held in place by a small pivot on the base of the bulb that fits into a section cut into the side of the cover; there are three extension bronchoscopes (v-aa) housed in the bottom of the box; all three bronchoscopes consist of two parts: a bronchoscope and an obturator; the bronchoscopes all consist of a length of hollow cylindrical tubing with an open, bevelled tip with rounded edges, and a round, open end that has a collar at the outer 2.5 cm; attached to the bottom of the collar is a square, solid metal piece that fits into the light source; the end with the collar also has a metal lever at the right side; the outer edge of the tube has a scale stamped into the metal; the obturators all consist of a length of hollow cylindrical tubing that has a round, open end and an open bevelled tip; at one side of the tip there is a flat, flexible blade attached; the blade is thin and flat and curves outwards to form a semicircle with a solid metal ball at its tip; the upper edge of the blade is serrated and sharp; the obturator and blades fit inside their bronchoscopes in pairs: (v,w), (x,y), and (z,aa); the bottom of the case also contains (bb) an unidentified single piece of hollow metal formed into a funnel shape with a wide circular opening at one end and a smaller circular opening at the other end; the walls are thin; the bottom of the case also contains a lens (cc); this is a cylindrical hollow piece with a round opening at one end and a round collar and smaller opening at the other end; the inside of this lens is filled with a piece of clear glass; the glass magnifies what you look at when looked through the end with the collar; the bottom of the case also contains an infant bronchoscope (dd) with light carrier (ee); the infant bronchoscope consists of a length of hollow cylindrical metal tubing with a round, open, slightly bevelled tip and an open end that has a flat, round metal piece attached perpendicularly; the end also has a short, hollow cylindrical drainage tube with a bulbous, open end attached at the bottom, near the end; the top of the infant bronchoscope has small, hollow cylindrical tubing running the length of the top of the main tube; the bottom of this smaller tube opens into the main tube; the small tube houses the light carrier (cc); the carrier consists of a length of cylindrical metal with a small, blunt pointed light bulb at the tip; the end of the light carrier bends upwards at a 90° angle to form a handle of larger diameter; a round pivot on the handle fits into a hole on the flat, round metal piece of the infant bronchoscope; the left side of the segmented front section of the box bottom houses two electric cords (ff,gg); these cords both attach to the light source and both consist of two long covered strands of wire twisted together with a rounded plug at one end; at the other end, the wires are untwisted for the last 30 cm and each has a cylindrical metal prong attached at its end; electric cord (ff) has a badly deteriorating (rubber?) coating on the wires and the plug is made of rounded bakelite and metal; electric cord (gg) is covered with woven thread and the plug is cylindrical and made of metal; the central front section of the box bottom is segmented off to form a small box that has a wooden lid (c); this section contains 13 light bulbs (three of which are wrapped in tissue paper) (hh-tt); all of the bulbs consist of a hollow, clear glass dome at the top, which is attached to a cylindrical metal base that tapers to a round, threaded end; all of the metal bases except that of (hh) are made of silver coloured metal; three of the light bulbs (rr-tt) are wrapped in small pieces of beige-coloured tissue paper (not numbered); the front right segmented section of the box bottom has a small rectangular tray (d) on top and more storage space below that; the tray has a slotted wooden inner tray set into the bottom centre and contains two items: an Unger blood transfusion needle (uu,vv) and a lens (ww); the blood transfusion needle consists of two parts: an outer cannula (uu) and an inner cannula (vv); the outer cannula has a length of narrow, hollow metal tubing with a sharp, bevelled tip; the other end of the outer cannula flares out to form a cylindrical end with an open, round hole and flattened finger grips on the sides; there is a flat crescent-shaped piece of metal attached perpendicularly to the cannula, near the end; the inner cannula has a length of thin hollow metal tubing with a sharp bevelled tip; the other end has a rounded knob with a small opening in the centre; the inner cannula fits into the outer cannula; a thin wire (not numbered) fits inside the inner cannula; the lens (ww) is made of a short section of hollow cylindrical metal with an inner lining of bakelite (?); the centre of the lens is hollow; one outer edge is flared outwards slightly to form a lip that has gripping grooves on its outer edges; there is a small pivot piece on the outer edge of the lens, at the centre; the front right segmented section of the box bottom houses seven spinal needles in a cardboard box (not numbered); the needles (xx, zz, bbb, ddd, fff, hhh, jjj) with inner stylets (yy, aaa, ccc, eee, ggg , iii, kkk) fit together in sequential pairs; the needles all consist of a length of hollow, cylindrical metal with an open, sharp bevelled tip; the other end of the needle has an attached base of heavy metal that has a hollow centre; the base is flat at its outer edge with a round opening at its centre, then it tapers in then out to create finger rests; the base tapers to join the needle; all of the stylets fit into the needles; they consist of a length of solid metal wire with a sharp, bevelled tip; the other end of the stylet has a solid, rounded piece of metal that allows the user to push it into the needle; a rounded pivot sticks out from the inside edge of the stylet end and fits into a hole in the outer edge of the needle base; this allows the two pieces to fit securely together.

Research Facts
The Harvey Double Head Stethoscope was part of a collection of stethoscopes by the Welch Allyn company called "Original Harvey Stethoscopes". They are no longer sold, and were replaced by the Harvey DLX stethoscopes.
US Patent No. 3,109,508 was granted on November 5th, 1963, to Ralph Cefaly, and was for an acoustic stethoscope with three heads: a bell, a diaphragm, and a corrugated diaphragm.
In the mid-1950s, Dr. Watkins Proctor Harvey invented this three-headed stethoscope, the Harvey Stethoscope, and it was produced by the Cefaly Research Corporation of Brentwood, Maryland. It was sometimes known as the Harvey Cefaly Stethoscope. The corrugated diaphragm helps detect faint heart activity and a larger range of frequencies. The bell is especially good for detecting low frequency sounds. Low frequency heart sounds called gallops can be signs of heart disease, and are important to be able to detect.
