So as you know I had a test/quiz this morning. It was on medical terminology. It was only over two chapters but there was so much information that I made over 150 flashcards. I probably studied yesterday for 5 hours for this big test that my teacher made such a big deal about all last week. I got up early this morning, which I don't like to do on Wednesday because my class is at 10:10 and I get to sleep in a little bit, and I studied some more. I went to school early and studied some more. Got to class, take the "test". It was 15 questions... 10 matching and 5 definitions. I was soooo mad. I spent so much time working my terminology so I could ace it. One of the definitions on the quiz wasn't even in the book... we looked trust me! Oh well... next time I'll know... don't kill yourself over terminology!
But here are some words that I had to learn that you might find amusing... I did:
angiectomy - excision of part of a blood or lymph vessel
glossodynia - pain in the tongue
keratorrhexis - rupture of the cornea
laparorrhapy - suture of the abdominal wall
myringoplasty - surgical reconstruction of the eardrum
salpingocyesis - development of an embryo in the uterine tube
xanthochromia - yellowish discoloration, as of the skin or spinal fluid
and my favorite, anisocytosis - presence in the blood of erythrocytes showing excessive variations in size
If anyone ever remembers every single one of the terms in this book, I want to meet them. I think it's impossible really.
