Abstract We were interested to read a letter by Khan and Morris who described an audit of the frequency of stethoscope utilization after intubation. They found that of 50 consecutive intubations, auscultation was performed on 31 cases. Their letter questions the time-honoured habit of routine chest auscultation after passing the tracheal tube through the glottis.
