"A plague doctor (Italian: physici epidemeie, Dutch:pestmeester, German: Pestarzt), was a special medical physician of the Middle Ages who saw those who had the bubonic plague. They were specifically hired by towns that had many plague victims in times of plague epidemics. The beak they had was a filter for what they believed to be bad, infected air. The protective suit consisted of a heavy fabric overcoat that was waxed, a mask of glassed eye openings and a cone shaped like a beak to hold scented substances. Some of the scented materials were amber, balm-mint leaves, camphor, cloves, laudanum, myrrh, rose petals, lavendar and storax.A wooden cane pointer was used to help examine the patient without touching."
