aijas žargons

by

aija, aija! pastāsti mums vai Latvijas ārsti arī lieto advancētu žargonu uz diagnozēm, kas atbilst realitātei, bet ne ētikai, tā kā Lielbritānijā?!?!?

 

Rekā Lielbritānijā ārsti raksta viens otram:

Top medical acronyms
CTD – Circling the Drain (A patient expected to die soon)
GLM – Good looking Mum
GPO – Good for Parts Only
TEETH – Tried Everything Else, Try Homeopathy
UBI – Unexplained Beer Injury
Medical terms – A glossary:
Digging for Worms – varicose vein surgery
Departure lounge – geriatric ward
Handbag positive – confused patient (usually elderly lady) lying on hospital bed clutching handbag
Woolworth’s Test – Anaesthetic term (if you can imagine patient shopping in Woolies, it’s safe to give a general anaesthetic)

Thus rheumatology, considered by hard-pressed juniors one of the less busy specialties, becomes “rheumaholiday”, the “Freud Squad” are psychiatrists, and “Gassers” and “Slashers” are anaesthetists and general surgeons respectively.
