More Medical Geekery

hehehe! I love doctors who have a sense of humor. I did a Google image search for a photograph I saw at work of a woman with exophthalmos--I considered it a truly frightening picture. Elsewhere on the search results page, I found an image of Bart Simpson labeled 'exophthalmos.' *snickers*

Work: I missed 'polycythemia vera' on a report today because I thought the doctor was saying womething else very fast. I'm very relieved that my supervisor caught it. *sigh* I hate making mistakes like that. At least it wasn't a stupid mistake, but mistake is really acceptable in this line of work.

Medical Transcription Word of the Day: Goeckerman's treatment - For psoriasis. Chosen because it made me think of geckoes.

Tricia--If you read this, I'm in the room.
