Improbable ideas and explanations collected from classrooms

Medical transcriptions sometimes state the very obvious. Here are some examples:

• She had difficulty completing simple calculations. For example, when I asked her what 3 times 3 plus 1 equals, she said “ten.”
• The patient is tearful and crying constantly. She also appears to be depressed.
• Patient experiences a burning sensation when he urinates for 24 hours.
• The patient has two anal fissures in the same anus.
• The patient stated it hurts to lift his left shoulder over his head.
• She is encouraged to wear helmets when she bikes.

(That’s an except from the article “Bends on the Learning Curve,” by Richard Lederer, published in AIR 13:4.)
