Used to monitor infant heart rate; also known as a "Doptone" because it measures tones using the "Doppler Effect"; Dr. A.A.Travill was an anatomy professor at Queen's, and served as department head from 1968-1978; he had an interest in medical history, and published several books and articles on the subject.
The expiration sticker is in German, so it was most likely made at HP's German factory in Boeblingen.
