Aw Cmon

Medicine is renowned for using remarkably complicated names for quite simple things. From priapism to diaphoresis. In many ways it is the art of making the rather straightforward a whole lot more complicated.

We also have a habit of giving rather exciting things long and unnecessarily dull names. You may have had a oesophago-gastro-duodenoscopy but i’m sure you understood it as the camera to look down your stomach.

Today in work, (which was a remarkably pleasant day with the biggest AAA i’ve ever seen who walked in looking very well…) we found the brochure for distinctive medical products, which is a place for buying those kind of useful things like the wee hammer the doctor uses for checking your reflexes or the clipboards they lean on. For some reason (which i’m still not entirely clear on) they call it Lamb Chop.

Worth a photo of the front and back cover anyhow.
