    Carpentry is dull.

    What's the difference between a rhino and an orthopod?

    Spoiler:
    Show

    One is a clumsy brute with thick skin who charges a lot, the other's an African mammal.


    How many orthopods does it take to change a lightbulb?

    Spoiler:

    Just one, who writes a referral to the medics - '?darkness ?cause'


    :rofl: The rhino one is new to me. "What's a double blind study? - Two orthopods looking at an ecg" is my favourite, esp after I heard a consultant say to the FY1 "don't ask me what that shows, I can't even spell ecg". :facepalm:

    Injuries to knee hip hand, joint pathology and atheritis(es)
    Hands are boring and complicated (and plastics do them anyway, so why bother?) but hips and knees are awesome! Have you not seen all the videos of twisting/bending injuries to knees??

    I love diagnosis by catchphrase.

    A bangadeshi man, fevers, sweats...
    20 year old male known to be HIV+ has CXR showing bilateral consolidation, low O2 and is very unwell - diagnosis and treatment
    Teenager found collasped with peardrops of breath, diagnose and treat
    Lady with previous history of itchy eye comes to GP with headache, change in conscious state and abnormal pupils

    (slightly made up, no people were harmed in the learning process)...
    My favourite line from a prejudice-based medicine question is:

    A 32 year old single male dancer presents with extensive furring of the tongue with pain and difficulty swallowing. What diagnostic test would you do?

    does he have candida, and you do an HIV test?

    Correct.
    ****, so I can only diagnose where the patient is a ridiculous stereotype!

    I'm very rarely an angry person, however I'm quite drunk and I feel the following: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...1#post30024061 is the most angry post I've made in a long, long time. I feel like hitting something.

    This is why alcohol is bad, kids. I think the internet should have a built in alcohol breath test.

    Can anyone access this article? Fragile X: leading the way for targeted treatments in autism. Wang LW. Berry-Kravis E. Hagerman RJ. Neurotherapeutics. 7(3):264-74, 2010 Jul.

    It's another where the university claims we have access to it where in reality we don't :rolleyes:

    Is anyone else going to the General Surgery conference at UCL this weekend? (I know we discussed it weeks ago but I can't remember if anyone actually booked).

    Also, any Kings or Impy students fancy showing me round on Friday? Have a few hours in the afternoon to kill and thought I'd check out where I might *touch wood* be doing an iBSc.
    Would have done, but am heading home for reading week tonight. You going to the trauma conference at Guy's this weekend?

    I am free from about 3 in the afternoon if you want a little tour of main campus for a bit.
