The stethoscope or phonendoscope is a medical instrument used to listen to the sounds produced inside the body, typically those of the heart and lungs but sometimes the intestines or blood flow. Listening to these sounds is known as "auscultation." The stethoscope was first invented in 1816.

In popular culture, stethoscopes are used as a symbol of doctors and the medical profession. TV doctors are often recognized by their white coats and the stethoscope draped around their necks. Doctors-in-training, such as Dottie "Doc" McStuffins from the Disney animated series, also wear and use stethoscopes - though her toy version is made from pink plastic.

Did you know? Mechanics sometimes use a type of stethoscope to listen to the internal sounds of a machine, such as an automobile engine. Like a doctor's stethoscope, the mechanic uses this device to detect and diagnose mechanical problems.
