Jean-Nicolas Corvisart-Desmarets was a French physician. Born in the French village of Dricourt in 1755, Corvisart translated Leopold von Auenbrugg’s Inventum Novum from Latin into French. Corvisart was especially fond of Auenbrugg’s use of chest percussion as a diagnostic tool, and began to perfect the technique.
Antoine Petit was a French physician, master of Joseph-Ignace Guillotin and Félix Vicq d’Azyr.
