Medical Alphabet

I found this image on the net and I liked it a lot because it made me remember all the written instructions I received from doctors, when I was sick or some of my relatives and I understand why I did not understand those notes, they have a specific alphabet, that is not the same one that we use the rest of the mortals ... hahaha ...

Here I leave this image to serve in their next translations from medical language to English ... hahaha ...

This jargon was formulated so that if any doctor makes a mistake other people will not understand but other doctors. Before diagnosis was made through the symptoms you told to the doctors. No proper examination was done.

There are some ailments with similar symptoms. A dictor may be treating malaria but the patient is suffering from amoebiasis or typhoid. They have similar symptoms. The jargon was to hide such.

Oh my god, the sad thing is that this isn't far fetched at all. I remember when I was younger there were times when I got prescribed antibiotics and some other things and I couldn't even read what the suggested dose was that was written on the package. I had to go on the internet and go by what people said there as well as reading the manual and then I just tried to guess the correct number.

I can relate to this as someone who have a really bad hand writing although I am not a doctor. I'm an engineering student and my friends keep asking me if have really taken the right program. They really had a hard time copying my answers and my notes during class. They already tag this meme to me and it was really hilarious.

Up to now I have never been to a medical professional I mean a doctor who can write the stuff I understand. Do they get extra training for it , to write something totally unique that no one else than the doctors can understand. I mean , is their study that much tough that converts the smooth writing into zigzag roads? It is always a resilient job to me whenever someone ask me to read or make him understand the prescription doctors written to him. I myself studying degree of medical field but this thing sucks.

Hahaha! Is it just me or are all the letters looks the same? But it's not for me to judge. Doctors really have talent for this. One time I ask a doctor if he is using some code or something but he said that "I just right the name of the medicine. Just give it to the pharmacist she knows what's this." and I was like, "O-Okay Doctor." The bottom line of that scenario was how did the pharmacist even understand the writings? It's still a mystery for me. A full respect for all the pharmacist out there.
