How stethoscope was invented

More than two hundred years ago, Laennec, a young French physician, invented the stethoscope in 1816 in Paris. He was not comfortable placing his ear directly onto a woman's chest to listen to her heartbeat; therefore, he used a long, rolled paper tube to travel the sound from the patient's chest to his ear without direct physical contact with patients. This is the way first stethoscope was invented.

It is commonly used to listen to the sounds made by the heart, lungs, intestines, and blood flow in arteries and veins. It is also used in measuring blood pressure in combination with a manual sphygmomanometer.

The word stethoscope is derived from two Greek words: stethos (chest) and skopein (to view or see)

Stethoscope becomes a symbol of healthcare professionals & medical students feel proud to wear it.

Taken admission in MBBS at the age of 64

If the intention is steely, then age is just a number. A 64-year-old man from Odisha has proved something similar. Despite all odds, this man fulfilled his dream and enrolled in MBBS at the age of 64. Jai Kishore Pradhan has taken admission at the Veer Surendra Sai Institute of Medical Science and Research (Wimsar) in Burla, Odisha. After retiring in 2016 from the bank, he prepared for NEET & sat in the entrance exam and succeeded. After training as a doctor, he desires to provide free medical treatment to the poor because he doesn’t want to pursue this degree as a profession.

The story of Mr. Jai Kishore Pradhan is no less than a motivation for all of us.
