About this work

Description

A laryngoscope views the larynx, or voice box. The larynx is in the upper part of the windpipe. This type of laryngoscope was introduced by Austro-German physiologist Johann Nepomuk Czermak (1828–73). He was interested in speech and sound. It consists of a laryngeal mirror. This reflects light down the throat. maker: Paetz and Flohr Place made: Berlin, Berlin state, Germany
