Post your medical questions here. We've all been there. You think you know what you're doing after so many years of reporting, and then - blammo - up comes a medical word you've never heard of. Happens to me more than I'd like to admit.
Does anyone have a favorite, reliable site you use to check drug names ~ spelling, capitalization, etc?? I usually Google and get the spelling, but then seem to never get a clear answer on whether the drug is capped or not.
I am stumped. Again, it is the anesthesiologist's depo I took. The question is:
I'm not talking about the optic "gias" and I am not talking about the retina. I'm talking about the basic function comes from the brainstem for autonomic activity.
Another question is: I don't think that anybody here claims that the last dose of epinephrine was given with a heart rate of 156 to 200. That would be crazy with a narrow complex. It would be crazy. If that was "V tec," you would have shocked him. You wouldn't have given him epinephrine anyway.
He said a word that I have no idea what it is. He said, And so that was the "centericate."
I would appeciate any feedback.
Most rule books say to use an "s" when initials or acronyms are pluralized. And they also usually suggest using an apostrophe to prevent confusion. "CSRs" doesn't need an apostrophe, but "crossing your Ts and dotting your I's" needs an apostrophe because "I's" looks like "is" without the apostrophe. Same with "A's and Bs." I would probably use an apostrophe in both for consistency within a sentence, though.
