From the archives: Demonstration of an electronic stethoscope

In 1952, JGH medical personnel gathered in the Nurses’ Lecture Hall in Pavilion A for a demonstration of a multi-channel electronic stethoscope, a new device that significantly amplified sound and minimized background noise. This was typical of a desire by JGH physicians to familiarize themselves with the latest forms of medical technology.


The Jewish General Hospital’s 85th anniversary is an ideal occasion to take a glimpse into the past. By remembering the extraordinary efforts of the hospital’s founders, supporters, staff and volunteers, we honour the enduring legacy of the JGH.
