Buisson has used it synonymously with listening. Laennec introduced auscultation to appreciate the different sounds which can be heard in the chest, and in the diagnosis of diseases of the heart, lungs, &c. This may be done by the aid of an instrument called a stethoscope, one extremity of which is applied to the ear, the other to the chest of the patient. This mode of examination is called Mediate Auscultation, (F.) Auscultation mediate,-the application of the ear to the chest being immediate auscultation. The act of exploring the chest is called Stethoscopia, and Thoracoscopia; of the abdomen, Abdominoscopia.
