Fun Fact: The Bowles stethoscope has been used in the medical profession for over 100 years. The inventor, Robert C. M. Bowles, applied to patent the original version of his stethoscope in 1894. The patent was granted in 1901. Bowles’ stethoscope improved upon its predecessors by providing better sound and a non-compressible stem (the part that connects to the tubing). Stems made of compressible material, like flexible rubber, could be bent. This interrupted sound to the earpieces. In his patent, Bowles noted that the incompressible stem allowed physicians to listen for heart and lung sounds without requiring patients to remove their clothing (A useful feature during the modest Victorian era).
