insonate definition

In Reply to: IS there a word as insonated sm - MB

Subject: insonate definition

insonate
to expose to ultrasound waves.

I found this at thefreedictionary.com, but it also refers to Dorland's as its source of information. I have had this word 1 time in a procedure report. Author stated something to the effect of, "vertebral artery could not be insonated." They went on to spell it, which was a good thing, because I thought he said isolated. :)

BOUGIES, neoplex, Porges (POR), filiform, (a) smaller sizes olive-tipped, (b) larger sizes plain, sizes 1 to 20 Ch, two only of each size. (c) Follower to fit, two only. Use these for dilating strictures, for which they have many advantages over metal bougies[md]except that they are much less durable. You can control their passage through the anterior urethra more easily, they follow the curve of the posterior urethra, and you will less easily cause false passages, even with small sizes. Cheatle's forceps can crush plastic bougies when they are hot, so tie them into bundles, and handle them only with tapes. Lift them out of the sterilizer and put them into cold boiled water. They will then be the right consistency for use.

Definition of shotty according to medterms.com
Subject: Definition of shotty according to medterms.com

Shotty: Resembling shot or pellets of lead, shotgun pellets and, hence, hard and round. The term "shotty" was in use in the 19th century. It is now generally obsolete but it is still in medicinal usage.

Shotty is very commonly used in describing the feel of lymph nodes (the lymph glands) when they are palpated (felt) through the skin. "Shotty" lymph nodes are ones that are not only hard and round but also small and surely of no consequence.

No consequence is not always the case with shotty. The pustules (the little pockets of pus) in smallpox are said to feel shotty, according to D.A. Henderson, the director of the World Health Organization (WHO) Smallpox Eradication Unit from its inception in 1966 to 1977. "Smallpox pustules have a dimple, a dent in the center. Doctors say that the pustules have a 'shotty' feel, like shotgun pellets. You can roll them between your fingertips under the skin," Henderson recounted (quoted by Richard Preston in The New Yorker, July 12, 1999).
