Speculum, lower blade

instrument for gynaecological examinations

This curved, hollow metal blade, part of a speculum, is termed the lower blade. See also Speculum, upper blade (Object 1203).

A speculum tube (from Latin speculum: “mirror”) is a medical instrument for gynaecological examinations. This tube is gently inserted into the vagina to provide a view into it and into the neck of the uterus.

With the aid of a speculum tube, other instruments can be inserted through the cervix and into the uterus in a sterile environment.
