 THE MONAURAL STETHOSCOPE
Laennec was embarrassed to place his ear to her chest (Immediate Auscultation), which was the method of auscultation used by physicians at that time.

Laennec noted it was uncomfortable for both doctor and patient, a bit too intimate for a hospital setting, and unsuitable for most women because, with some, "the very size of their breasts was a physical obstacle to the employment of this method." The 35-year-old Laennec was still a bachelor and a stickler for propriety.
It was then, Laennec said, he remembered a "simple and well-known fact in acoustics"--that is, that sound is augmented when conveyed through certain solid bodies, such as wood.
Laennec had adopted the term "auscultation" from the Latin auscultare, meaning "not merely to listen, but to listen carefully." The word "mediate" indicated that the auscultation was not direct but mediated by "le cylindre."

Remembering (a law of physics) a childhood trick of scratching the end of a log with a pin, a sound that would be transmitted loud and clear to the other end of the log, he made a "log" by rolling sheets of paper into a cylinder.
Laennec recalled applying one end of it to the region of the heart and the other to his ear, and was surprised to find that he could perceive the action of the heart in a manner much more clear and distinct.
This led to the intervention of Laennec's monaural stethoscope in 1819.
