Medical Museum: Laryngoscope

From the July 2018 issue of DOTmed HealthCare Business News magazine
Each month, we visit Dr. Blaufox’s Museum of Historical Medical Artifacts to take a look back at the medical equipment that cleared the way for what patients encounter in doctors’ offices and operating rooms of today.

Some equipment may be recognizable, while other featured inventions have since become obsolete or have had their usefulness discredited.

The picture and description appear courtesy of Dr. M. Donald Blaufox, M.D., Ph.D, from his website: www.mohma.org.

Estimated Date: 1879
Name: Laryngoscope and Student Lamp ( Tobolds )
Manufacturer: American Brass Co.
Description: This large oil lamp is an adaptation of a student table lamp for ENT or other type of examination. Very similar to a reading lamp of the time, but the condensing lens focuses the light to provide adequate illumination for the examiner.

There is a mirror on an arm to use to enhance the light. The observer looked through the blackened side of the mirror through a small central hole that allowed him to view the patient with additional illumination from the light reflected by the mirror.
