The Wednesday Word - auscultation

Best Blogger Tips

Wednesday 25 September 2013

Today’s word is auscultation. It is what doctors (and others) do when the listen to sounds inside the body to try and work out what is going on

Here is my quote for it:

“Dr Smith attempt to diagnose everything with auscultation. Sore throat – he would listen to you swallowing. Stomach ache – he would try and hear the tummy rumblings. Bruised leg – he would tap your knee and claim he could hear the blood rushing out. While many people enjoyed it, others thought it was sheer quackery.”

Feel free to let me know if you ever come across a word you think may be appropriate for this part of my blog.
