I have to agree with you - the stethoscope is like magic - the dancing tubes, the chill of the chestpiece!
If your into mouth gags and throat exams. I wonder if you've ever seen the massive (like 400) image physical exam series from I think the Czech Republic. There are like three or four gag images that are unbelievable. If you are interested I could probably find them.
I wonder how many of us are full-fledged addicts to the stethoscope. Perhaps I should offer a tutorial or class showing the wide variety of steths on the market!
Do you ever replay the injection procedure using an alcohol prep pad - remember upper outer quadrant - we don't want to hit the sciatic nerve
Well stated - you know this short post should be required reading for all playdocs, real docs etc. Slow and gentle that should be the pace!
Do you then replay each and every neuance in the Roladex of your mind - comparing year to year? I do
Breast exam as you describe it is almost like a modern dance routine - choreographed by the examiner - won't it be nice to devise some sensual moves to accentuate your description
Take a bow young lady
The order of abdominal exam is stethoscope, inspection, palpation, percussion - geez what goes thru your young mind?
Add to your description the warmth of the surgical lamp and that rush of cool air against your pink parts - As a male I can hardly imagine the joy
You do think differently, splendid - the scoliosis exam for spinal deviation. Stripped either to the waist or nude, a deep bend and observation of the gluteal folds. I hope the folks who devise these tests never come up the elbow measure of spinal deformity - it would take away our pleasure
I love this rouse - can you see extrapolation "Oh Dr is this lump (imaginery) anything to be concerned about" or "Dr there is a strong history of cancer in our family - hmmm I think rectal or colon" I guarantee this will get you a digital exam - maybe a 3 day fast from meat and a proctoscope (fiberoptic these days!)
I coldn't agree more - totally at the will of another - helpless!
