‘Stethoscope’ – and other medical poems

If you’re looking for poetic material with medical themes, the pages of the journal Medical Humanities are a good place to begin. The publication regularly features medically inspired poems – turn for example to Volume 37, Issue 1, which features :

● ‘Stethoscope’ (by Anne K Merritt)

Here’s an extract :

“She has wandered with me

since my first days as a physician—

an unassuming extension of my ears,

gently slung about a tattered collar,

patiently transmitting rubs, rhonchi, rales,

as I struggled to decipher them.”

Many other poems are available to read in their entirety without charge – such as :

● ‘Eat more fatty fish’ (Adam Possner)

● ‘Arachnoid Mater’ (Adam A Dmytriw)

● ‘On Amyloid Protein’ (Danish Zaidi)

Others are for subscribers only, such as :

● ‘Cytotoxic Infusion’ (Adam A Dmytriw) and

● ‘Congenital Glaucoma’ (Richard M Ratzan)

    Another thing I have noticed is that for many people, poor credit is the reaction of circumstances beyond their control. Such as they may happen to be saddled with an illness so they really have substantial bills for collections. It may be due to a employment loss or even the inability to do the job. Sometimes divorce or separation can really send the finances in the wrong direction. Thanks for sharing your ideas on this blog site.

    It is my belief that mesothelioma is most deadly cancer. It contains unusual characteristics. The more I look at it the harder I am convinced it does not conduct itself like a true solid human cancer. When mesothelioma is usually a rogue virus-like infection, in that case there is the potential for developing a vaccine in addition to offering vaccination for asbestos subjected people who are open to high risk with developing long run asbestos linked malignancies. Thanks for giving your ideas about this important health issue.
