English corner: Internal medicine
In this sixth English corner, you will find a contribution dealing with internal medicine. We would like to remind you that our aim is not to teach medicine but to familiarize readers with medical English as used by professionals and patients.
A patient referred to the internal medicine department…
Dr Wolf: Sit down, Ms Carter. So, you’ve been sent up from the A&E Department. Could you tell me what prompted your visit to the emergency department?
Rose Carter: Well, I’ve had this pain in my chest for the last couple of days. I called the NHS 111 service and they told me to come to the hospital.
Dr Wolf: I see – a wise decision – Can you describe the pain for me?
Rose Carter: It’s like a dull ache and it’s there all the time. And it’s difficult for me to breathe.
