Are the events that happen in the tv shows like grays anatomy, true or false?

What are some good medical books to read? I've read grays anatomy and quick anatomy answer book. Doesn't have to be about anatomy.

Some old favorites include Health and Healing & Natural Health, Natural Medicine, both by Andrew Weil MD, Detoxification and Healing by Sidney Baker MD, Quantum Healing by Deepak Chopra MD and for something very outside the box but fascinating, Reinventing Medicine by Larry Dossey MD. ...Read more

Gray's anatomy: Was first published in 1858! our understanding of anatomy hasn't changed that much over the centuries whereas our knowledge of physiology has progressed very rapidly. As such i'm not aware of a "classic" physiology textbook, and i would simply recommend checking out user reviews on amazon or b&n.

Is The show "Grey's Anatomy" Accurate on their medical information? How about "House"?

Not very, House more: I have hardly seen Grey's Anatomy but from all accounts it has many inaccuracies, both in portraying what residency training is like and medical details- see http://tinyurl.com/hgkp9dp and http://tinyurl.com/hdtqdde House (which I have seen) is more accurate but also not too realistic in many ways and also has inaccuracies. See http://tinyurl.com/jlarw for an analysis of each episode by a doctor! ...Read more

This is kinda weird but do you think the show greys anatomy make being a doctor look easy or humours? Whats you opinion?

Yes: This is a personal opinion, but tv doctor shows focus on drama, and sensationalism. What is unseen, is that most physicians have sacrificed a great deal to pursue medicine. They work long hours, weekends, and holidays, and must read often to keep informed as to current developments in their field. Many struggle with managing practice costs and little time for their families. ...Read more

What does "adequate hydration" have to do with preventing vomiting? [not dehydrat from, paul cohen?]

What does "adequate hydration" have to do with preventing vomiting? [not dehydrat from, paul cohen?]

Nothing: When vomiting you must provide adequate hydration; otherwise you will become dehydrated. If you are not able to keep fluids down and replace the losses you would need to be in the hospital getting IV fluids until the problem is passed and you can again take your fluids orally. To prevent vomiting you may need assistance with medications such as phenergan (promethazine). ...Read more
