I'm impressed you can spell "sphygomo" whatever.
You must have done to my med school! The first quiz in my doctoring course we were asked a question where sphygmomanometer was the answer. Spelling counted. Why we had to be able to spell THAT word has baffled me.
They have drs toy kits for girls now? I thought the fisher price one I had when I grew up was awesome, but in pink it would have been even better.
Ha ha! My boys have been given a few of these kits (not in pink). I wore the plastic stethoscope and filled my pockets with the tools on Halloween.
Okay, so why does a rehab doc need an otoscope?
Giz: I googled it for spellingOMDG: I saw the pink doctor's kit when my daughter was like one year old and had been patiently waiting for her to be old enough for me to buy it for me... er, her.Grumpy: I can't figure out why anyone needs an otoscope, since exam rooms always have them. I have used my otoscope exactly once, on the day we learned how to examine the ear as an MS2. Well worth $300.
I had to write a paper on a sphygmomanometer once for a tech writing class. Writing that word over and over was such a pain!
My dad gifted me with a new stethoscope, diagnostic set...no green syringe, sigh. I've been testing it for a while (using an action figure as patient)My bother took a picture with his cellphone. I look pretty happy.
I loved the doctor's kit I had as a small child; it wasn't pink, but it still rocked. I never did figure out why they have to turn everything pink in order to sell it to those of us of the female persuasion (whether we're tykes or adults)... Reminds me of a blog post I read a while ago from a science blogger who happens to be a woman, ranting about that tendency of the "establishment" to turn everything pink and pretty for girls while boys get stuff that's more durable and more realistic. (I think her post was about microscopes and other science things, if I remember correctly.) And I was always such a spelling geek that I think I could spell sphygmomanometer when I was about ten, and I knew what it was, too. A shame I couldn't turn that into a later career in medicine, though not for lack of trying!
Gasp! I want a pink sphygmomanometer!
Pink doctor's kit is better than the pink 1.5T Simens makes as a 'breast care' line or MRIs.I for one would be sketched out if a Simens was anything but the familiar Simens green....
You get an odoscope for one reason. You can examine your screaming two year old at home when he has a fever and avoid the embarrassing trip to the pediatrician or ER.
