  1. I go to med school in the south and people pronounce all these things so differently 😂 especially cholelithiasis

  2. is it weird to get all the words right without being a greek, a med student or whatever. 😂 just a bookworm, that's all.

  3. LOL…I've had gall stones for ten years and am going to school to be a surgeon and I still can't pronounce Choledocholithiasis

  4. I find this hilarious because I go to Vet school and I remember I couldn't pronounce HEPATIC ENCEPHALOPATHY (HE) or Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) I think it's fun to say these words especially when I'm trying to roast someone and they are trying to roast me so I just throw out some random words in the medical language

  5. they'd get more of them right if they paid attention during ancient Greece class, you learn root words which will help u guess these

  6. I can explane all the words, but can't pronounced in that strange English…because are all Greek (almost) words.
    borborygmi = βορβορυγμοί
    choledocholithiasis = χολυδοχολυθίασις
    ankylosing spondylitis = αγκυλωτική σπονδυλίτις
    sphygmomanometer = σφυγμομανόμετρον

  7. I had medical words in a reading test, the person said don't worry, very few people actually read it right, turns out without medical word I have a reading age of 16+ and I'm ten

  8. A year ago I showed this to my brother but now I guess this is not a problem to my brother since he is a medical student

  9. My prof definitely played the Manamana Muppets song when we were studying vessel pressures and screwing around with BP cuffs. Nice work, Andrew.

  10. Who else was waiting for Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis to show up?

    Just me?
    All right…😣

  11. When it comes to big words regardless of where they come from, if i don't know them i always try to break them up in to multiple pieces so i can go through it easier.

  12. Couple other cool ones:
    Jejunojejunal intussusception – when a section of the middle part of the small intestine (jejunum) slides into itself
    Erythrocytapheresis – separating red blood cells (erythrocytes – erythro means red, cyte means cell) from whole blood
    Epipodophyllotoxins – the name for some anti-cancer drugs from the podophyllum plant (toxins that form on/above (epi) the podophyllum plant)
    Cheilognathopalatoschisis – birth defect wherein the lip (cheilo), the jaw (gnatho) and the soft palate (palato) are split (schisis)

  13. Choledocholithiasis- Oh, swap the O and L and you get my name 🙂

    And I just realised that nobody cares 🙁

  14. We made an interesting video on medical terms and abbreviations. If anyone wants to learn some common medical terms used in the everyday medical world.

  15. i know how to say all these and know what they mean and im only 15 then again both my parents are doctors soo i guess i would have an advantage

  16. I'm sorry but raising your eyebrows is not the fx of temporoparietalis muscle. It is occipitofrontalis muscle. TP muscle raises ears and helps OF to wrinkle your forehead.
    You are welcome buzzfeed.

  17. I know this video was long before Zach had his diagnosis, but he has ankylosing spondalitis, so I knew exactly how to pronounce that. 🙁

  18. Ankylosing Spondylitis …… this vid had a weird foreboding of Zach's medical life…… out of everything they could have chosen 😛 XD
