This is a picture from ~1925 where Karel Frederic Wenckebach (famous for describing 2nd degree type I AV block) demonstrates a boy's #heartbeat to a #medical class. Look how his students listen through stethoscopes connected to a machine. Maybe it is a good idea for training of medical students today !
