Subject: Glidewire vs guide wire
In Stedman's Med/Surg Equipment reference it shows lower case glide wire listed under wire and also under glide (this is coming from an old 1993 edition). They also show upper case Glidewire guide listed only under wire. Then in the Stedman's CV and Pulmonary 2001 edition it shows Glidewire brand listed as it's own separate reference with several types listed under it. Glidewire appears again under the guide wire listings and nowhere can I find lower case glide wire listed in the newer edictino (not even under wire). I'm guessing you are trying to say that Glidewire brand name has replaced the old reference all together? I do want to get this right and appreciate your pointing that out.
Any clues about the Mire/Mylar wire or the AquaTempo catheter?

Doctor is putting in a ureteral stent. Sometimes it sounds like he's saying guidewire, but then other times it sounds like glidewire. Most things I've found on google say guidewire. Could he be dictating both? Which one is usually used in this type of procedure? Thanks.

This is dictated in an op note on a right knee arthroscopy and partial meniscectomy. The doc says a s/l Poodoo drill guide was inserted and the tibial tunnel placed in an anatomic position. I've tried various spellings on Google, including Peaudeau, Pudeau, Pudu, etc., and I'm not having any luck finding this. Any ideas, anyone?
