medical, dental . . .

I'm a bit at sea with all these new projects coming in from the big client my packager has secured. Textbook publishing is heading more and more in the direction of allied health areas. My AMA Manual of Style and Taber's are getting a work out. Testbanks and more testbanks, as well as another edition of the "how to stay healthy" text, which is more interesting, but must be a very expensive book to buy. Lots of art/photos.

Hard to stay focused, when all the sentences read like this: On examination, her temperature is 98.6°F, and you see an erythematous and edematous external auditory canal with a small amount of purulent discharge. What is the most likely diagnosis?

It must be hard to plow through some of that material sometimes.

Diagnosis: a rhinovirus?
