Is she just spelling Palmer's point WRONG?
Subject: Is she just spelling Palmer's point WRONG?

Why do they even BOTHER to spell things out if they are going to spell it wrong?? I'm thinking it has to be Palmer's point. Anyone agree?

Several articles pop up with "The left subcostal site in the midclavicular line (Palmer's point) was the site of choice" AND "Use of Palmer’s point (left subcostal incision) for primary port entry to undertake therapeutic laparoscopy", ECT. It has to be Palmer's point.

British/European pronunciation
Subject: British/European pronunciation

Does the dictator have a British or foreign accent?  Many British doctors pronounce "cephalad" as "Kephalad".  For some reason that's how they learn to pronounce it.  Could be the dictator is using a hard "K" sound for the soft "C" sound.

Need help with ortho - Doc has a slight British accent.
Subject: Need help with ortho - Doc has a slight British accent.

The patient returns today three years after her anteroposterior reconstruction for flat back deformity. No pain. She is here, however, because she has some prominence in her back that has gotten progressively more pronounced.

On examination, there is s/l right-sided hooks. I believe this needs to be removed. I feel she is solid because she has no pain.

Thanks for any help!!

There are Roth spots.  Some docs want to spell words...which sometimes really mess me up until I realize that's what they are doing.    I have never heard of the "hour TA" part of it otherwise.

EKG help - J Point
Subject: EKG help - J Point

Cardio doc dictates EKG as follows: 

EKG demonstrates normal sinus rhythm at 61 beats per minute with normal axes, normal intervals, J point elevation 1 and 0; otherwise, no ischemic changes.  


But just not sure on how to type the 1and 0 or if he is saying 0, but sounds for sure like 1.  Anyone with any ideas.  This is a new one on me?  Any help appreciated!!!

Subject: Sometimes I think you can get to the point where

Someone new at this might have to look-up a lot things.  Sometimes you just get to the end of your rope with researching especially when the doc isn't sounding too clear or the word is slurred.  We must support one another though not tear each other down.  Why can't people just go by the old saying of "if you do not have something nice to say then do not say anything at all".  To come off like a know it all proves what?  Absolutely nothing in my opinion.  Not everyone is up on everything.

Subject: Yes, I know. The point is, he didn't SAY that sm

Although he does mention "near the perforation" later in the report.


My point is, docs sometimes use the abbreviations they use in speaking in their reports as well. Most of the time I will type them out, but it bugs me either way - I like to type verbatim and not add anything the doc didn't say, but if he says it wrong, what are you going to do? (Except maybe leave him a message.)
