McCoy using a tongue depressor

McCoy about to use a tongue depressor on Crater

A tongue depressor was a flat wooden stick that was used to immobilize a patient's tongue to allow a doctor a clear view of the individual's throat.

In 2266, Doctor Leonard McCoy used a tongue depressor on Professor Robert Crater while examining his tonsils, just before he was interrupted by Nancy Crater's scream. (TOS: "The Man Trap")

In 2377, while exhibiting the personality of The Doctor, Seven of Nine euphemistically complained to Jaryn that Ranek wanted "to use (her) face as a tongue depressor" (kiss her passionately). (VOY: "Body and Soul")
