Word Origin and History for auscultated auscultate v.
"to listen" (especially with a stethoscope), 1832, from Latin
auscultatus, past participle of auscultare "to listen attentively to," from aus-, from auris "ear" (see ear (n.1)); "the rest is doubtful" [OED]. Tucker suggests the second element is akin to clinere "to lean, bend."
