I just read something interesting regarding Otoscope Designs which I think is very informative specially to nursing students. Maybe you could read it if you have time.

Excerpt:

As early as 1363, Guy de Chauliac of France illustrated the very first design of otoscope which comes in a tong shape specula and has the capacity to examine the aural and nasal passages. Ancient ear specialists make use of this medical instrument for almost half a century. In 1838, Ignaz Gruber of Italy tried to redesign the said device to a funnel shape specula but unfortunately, his invention remains unpublished. Then in 1864, E.Siegel from Germany introduced a new model of medical instrument for ear check up called pneumatic otoscope.
