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.

Okay. I've got one. Help me out here folks anyone heard of a "K-rock" pain medicine injection?

Here's how it's used: ANSWER: K-rock is just another type -- it's just a nonnarcotic pain medicine. And it
was an intramuscular injection because that's where we give it.

I found ketorolac, which is a pain medicine, intramuscular injection. Hope that helps.
THanks. I"ll check it out
Hey, brainiacs...

I need some help! I'm proofreading a neonatologist's depo and have run across something which has me utterly perplexed! Any suggestions or help anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated. I'm a very creative Googler but cannot find "Pogo" in this context for the life of me. (See how it's being used below.) Thanks! --Chris

Q. Do you represent, generally, as an expert witness, plaintiffs or defendants?
A. Right now, it's about 50 percent in the global perspective of Pogo's world.

A. And in her deposition, she says the good doctor blew her off. And the doctor, in his
deposition, takes a little different approach to Pogo's Rule.
The only thing I can come up with is POGO, the Project on Government Oversight.

On Wikipedia, though, check out all the different Pogos: Wikipedia Pogos

You've probably already seen the above-referenced Pogos, but I thought I would bring them up. That POGO organization is all over the Internet, mentioned in law cases, but I don't know if it's a good fit for your job. HTH
I'm not sure, but I did find this:

The name Drupal, pronounced "droo-puhl," derives from the English pronunciation of the Dutch word "druppel," which means "drop." ...


(human umbilical vein IS exposed to carboplatin for 80 min, ... used to treat testicular and ovarian tumors.)

Well, at least you were able to get in contact with the doctor. Glad you got your answer:)
Here's the question:

"There's a discussion here that ** had with **, and he talked about the compound, the components of the compound that was injected. He talks about 500 units of heparin, 250 micrograms of B12, and .25 milliliters of lidocaine -- of 1 percent lidocaine, for a total volume of one half pull liter.
Of that one-half milliliter of liquid volume, how much of it's heparin?"

I wrote PUL/LAOERT and that's what it sounds like on the audio. I thought maybe it's "full liter," but my brain is mathematically and metrically challenged ~ what makes sense here? Of course it's an expedite due tomorrow!!

Thanks all!
There is a push/pull method and it refers to volume. Did some scouting on the Internet and found this article -- maybe it will help:
Thanks, April, but my brain is so fried I can't make sense of the article (not that it takes much, and I'm having a hard time focusing:) I'll have to re-look in the a.m. and see if it makes more sense :)
Basically, they're talking about a push liter and a pull liter referring to volume of intravenous Rx. If you wrote "pull liter," and that's what the audio sounds like, the article just confirms that there is such a thing:)
