This unique piece of vintage style medical equipment is known as a Pinard horn. It is a type of stethoscope used to listen to the heart rate of a fetus during pregnancy. It is a hollow horn, made of wood, approximately 6 inches long. It was invented in 1895 by Dr. Adolphe Pinard, a French obstetrician.
Although still used today, this wooden stethoscope makes for a unique addition to any vintage medical collection or curio cabinet. With it’s dark wood finish, it is a piece of medical history. The user holds the wide end of the horn against a pregnant woman’s abdomen, and listens through the other end. This medical instrument was the precursor to todays modern Doppler fetal monitor.
