Abstract

In a realistic anesthesia simulator, we noted that experienced clinicians have difficulty identifying asymmetric breath sounds during pneumothorax. We wondered whether a stereostethoscope could be devised to allow auscultation of the left and right lung, simultaneously. A literature search revealed that a stereostethoscope was first described in 1858, but has been largely neglected as a clinical monitor.
