Happy MedSpanish Sunday! How did you guys do on our first lesson? Did anyone try out their newfound vocabulary at work or on rotations? As always, be sure to message me regarding any questions or suggestions. I’m happy to hear from you all.
This week, I worked four 12-hour shifts. For some reason, we’re seeing a resurgence in viral URIs, strep throat, and influenza. In the middle of Spring? That’s another discussion for another day. One of my elderly patients came in with a chief complaint of persistent dry cough and reminded me of great vocab word to share on here.
Chief complaint: “Pienso que tengo tosferina”
Translation: I think I have pertussis
Anyway, that was a just a quick side note. Today we’ll discuss (very) basic anatomy terms. The idea is not to give you too much information at once, but instead slowly build up your vocabulary. At least I hope this is not too much info. Below are the most common Spanish anatomy terms I encounter on a daily basis. Some are a little difficult to pronounce, so if you don’t quite get it on the first try, keep practicing!
