Medical Names that Could be...

themedicalchronicles:

I’ve started compiling a list of medical/anatomical/scientific names that could be used elsewhere. This list will be continuously updated. Feel free to add your own!

…used in Harry Potter:

  • ductus venosus
  • ductus arteriosus
  • levator scapula
  • cavernous sinus
  • levator palpebrae superioris
  • xeroderma pigmentosum
  • constrictor pharyngis superior

Probably because many of these names come from Latin anyway, and actually, while re-reading some Harry Potter, I believe Rowling was inspired by some of her names from science and Latin (like the Basilisk and bezoars). I think I’ll write a research paper on that one day…

…dinosaur names:

  • pterygopalatine (fossa)
  • mandible, or submandibular
  • pterygomandibular

…something that Arnold Schwarzenegger says:

  • buccinator (as in, “I am the Buccinator, and I am a facial muscle”)

New genetics word to use in science fiction: sibship - doesn’t it remind you of a bunch of siblings on a ship just bickering and daring each other?

Beggars Med students can’t be choosers.
More doodling. I have a new idea for photos and drawings using this sign! Coming soon to a Tumblr near you.
Join the crazy fun, just for fun. Post a pic of yourself (you don’t have to show your face) and tag it “med students can’t be choosers.”

A cure for…death

The blood of a unicorn will keep you alive, even if you are an inch from death, but at a terrible price. You have slain something pure and defenseless to save yourself, and you will have but a half-life, a cursed life, from the moment the blood touches your lips.

- Firenze (Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone)

Unicorn blood banks!

Clearly the solution to all of medical science’s unanswered questions.

The mane problem seems to lie in extracting the blood - because finding a decent vein can be a bit hit and myth.

So i-heart-histo quotes Harry Potter too. And makes Cranquis-style puns. Awesomeness.

Medical Answers to Nursery Rhymes

cranquis:

themedicalchronicles:

Do your ears hang low?
Do they wobble to and fro?

Because you might just have a heart defect. 

Can you tie them in a knot?

Can you tie them in a bow?

Sounds like Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome to me.

Can you throw them o’er your shoulder

Like a Continental soldier?

Maybe you shouldn’t wear such heavy earrings.

random moments from life: Vitamins

randommomentsdevida:

Thiamine is a drunk Russian wearing handcuffs rolling in a pile of coins, muttering “beri beri” under his breath. Oh, and he doesn’t like to eat. 

Riboflavin is a cat with two kittens meowing “Nyow!” but Riboflavin likes to hiss instead. The Joker is sitting with them. 

Niacin is a pessimistic brat who’s always sitting on the toilet, demented, itchy, and on the verge of death. He eats too much corn.  

Pantothenic is a child wearing weird pants running around the lobby and basically acting like a little sh*t. He likes toy cars. 

Pyridoxal is a spider climbing the random pyramid structure. When you see him, scream “NOOOOOO” 

Biotin is a buff bald dude chugging raw eggs even though you told him not to. 

Folate is always running late with his neural tube dragging 9 feet behind him. He has a car.

Cobalamin is 12 and faints a lot at the sight of blood. idfk

Ascorbate and le scurrveehh

So thiamine walks into a bar and…
