BronyMedic: mcwehrle: I'm not sure why you are so intent on making this an issue. Oncologists(not classified as a surgical position) or other "Medics" actually can and do perform surgery. Just because your verbal spanking of a UK paper using a UK term properly was just a bit off mark, it's ok. No one is perfect.Have a lovely day.My point was that, in common modern vernacular, it's rare to non-existant (especially in the United States) to hear a doctor called a "medic". It's more commonly used as slang for 68Ws/Corpsmen (what's the UK Equivilent?) or EMTs.Enjoy your tea and crumpets, mate. God Save the Queen.
mcwehrle: It is not a United States newspaper. So your 'point' makes no sense. Get it? Along the lines of "American Football" and "Football for the rest of the known world".
mcwehrle: I'm having coffee and deer jerky.
BronyMedic: DownDaRiver: I was just trying to allow you another opportunity to show everyone that big brain of yoursSo threadshiatting, threadjacking, and personal insults are your idea of intelligent conversation. Nice to know.
BronyMedic: Aortic Arch Dissections are rarely survivable unless they're distal to the arch. You literally lose your entire blood volume into your mediastinal, pleural, and pericardial areas in a matter of seconds, and you lose coronary perfusion if it's close to the aortic semi-lunar valve.Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms are more survivable, but still very deadly. The best place to have one is close to the renal artery branch, because the retroperitoneal cavity can tamponade off the artery for a short while.Dissection is an "OH CHRIST, OR NOW" moment. Aneurysms, especially if small, can be treated medically.
