Subject: See message

Yes, it is capitalized. Pap actually stands for a proper name, Papanicolaou.

Get yourself a good medical dictionary and look up Chlamydia/chlamydia

The word "chlamydia" is the genus and is only capitalized if it is followed by the name of the family.  This per Dorland's Medical Dictionary.  If the word "chlamydia" is not followed by the family name, the word is not capitalized.

I do not mind helping people with their questions, but would appreciate if you could give a little more context when asking.  Perhaps a sentence or two containing the s/l or word in question or some sort of reference to what type report, body area, etc., would be welcome.  It would greatly help me to help you.

The first thing you should learn is HOW to ask a question.  You can't just jump in with one word or half a phrase or a sound-like and cry for help.  You need to give some example of what you are looking for.  People on this board do not mind helping you or they would not be here, but a little more information on your part would help us help you.  Medical transcription is more than just one word or half a phrase or a sound-like and most times it is necessary to give some indication of what is wrong with the patient or a diagnosis in order to get an answer.

Dorland's Medical Dictionary: 


Pexis: 


1.  Fixation of matter by a tissue. 


2.  Surgical fixation, usually by suture. 


Therefore pexed would be past tense, as in was pexed (or fixed).

I am not sure about this statement during a pulse oximetry reading, but elsewhere they will usually say "per physician reading, per ER physician/doctor reading" etc., or it could be "per pulse oximeter reading or per pulse oximeter."

This is a pulmonary account.  It sounds like she needed to use the "VAS??" every two hours.


Then again under plan "increase use of vest/VAS??"  It definitely is related to pulmonary.

OLeary uterine artery ligation


. This has been used in cases of bleeding during Caesarean sections (n=265 over 30 years (27)). Sutures including 2-3 cm of myometrium are placed 2-3 cm below the uterine incision.


The uterus is grasped by the assistant and elevated upwards and to the opposite side of the uterine artery which will be ligated to expose the vessels coarse through the broad ligament.


- A large atraumatic needle with no. 1 chromic cutgut, O-vicryl or O-Dexon is passed through and into the myometrium from anterior to posterior 2-3 cm medial to the uterine vessels.


- The needle is brought forward through avascular area in the broad ligament lateral to the uterine artery and vein. The suture is tied anteriorly.


- In case of caesarean section, the sutures are placed 2-3 cm below the level of uterine incision under the reflected peritoneal flap which should be displaced downwards with the bladder to avoid ligation of the ureters.


- If caesarean section was not done, peritoneal incision is not indicated and bladder can be simply pushed downwards.


- Uterine artery ligation is haemostatic by reducing the pulse pressure to the uterus as 90% of its blood supply is from the uterine vessels.


- Collateral circulation and recanalization of the uterine vessels will be established within 6-8 weeks.


 It has a success rate of 95%

Is it okay to use the word 'regard' as well as 'regards;' are they interchangeable; also, how about 'toward' and 'towards?' I checked Merriam-Webster dictionary online regarding toward/towards and apparently either one can be used, how about regard/regards? Anyone?
