Medical Geek Humor on Twitter

From @Allergy:

- Question: "Do you have any wheezing?" -- Answer: "My hearing is bad, so even if I have, I can't hear it."

- Transcriptionist made up a new word for an asthma dictation: "Since she was not able to tolerate beta agonase" - Correct: "beta-AR2 agonist"

- Dictation transcribed: "He has a remote history of history, not symptomatic now." - It was supposed to be "remote history of asthma".

- Creative transcription: "He is allergic to marijuana" - It was supposed to be: "He is allergic to weed".

- "7-10% of patients with oral allergy syndrome may have systemic reactions, 1% of them may have anaphylaxis" was transcribed as "70% of patients with oral allergy syndrome may have systemic reactions, one of them may have anaphylaxis".
