Random Jottings ~ Medical

it’s a bit unnerving that doctors call what they do ‘practice…..’

after a sixteen-hour shift women doctors need to practice standing on one leg

nurses, the problem is you can’t live without them, and you can’t always believe them

his temperature was up to 105, and there was an icy look in the nurse’s eyes

little do the doctors know, but you’re never alone if you’re paranoid

~

never give up on life, if you give up you have no chance at all

he was happy before the doctor told him he was sick

she had wise eyes in a face of angelic concern

shame she wasn’t a nurse

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Nursie

doctors may think they’re important,
but it’s the nurses that get you well

This has got to be the shortest Jethro Tull track ever.

The nurses in this hospital have been very good to me, especially when I couldn’t get out of bed at all.

Medical Tests

medicine is a pseudoscience of uncertainty and probability

Today I will be out.

I’m going to Newcastle upon Tyne for a series of medical-type tests;

  • A long, long Q & A session.
  • Lots of measurements including body fat, BP, and pulse rate.
  • Electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • Full-body MRI scan.
  • Brain MRI scan, (wish me good luck with that one).
  • Heart and body MRI scan.
  • Neck artery ultrasound scan.
  • Dual-Energy x-ray Absorptiometry scan.
  • Full blood work up.
  • Urine tests.
  • Treadmill heart monitoring

All in all I’m told it should take about 5 hours.

All followed up by 14 days of heart monitoring using a patch.

Ergo, if I’m not around later you know where I am.
