    We would sometime only get the "International" editions (i.e. in British English) of textbooks in Hungary where I did my Basic Sciences. Pretty much the same as American English but for a few minor exceptions. My friends and I would joke around...

    What? Dyspnea? The patient must have pulmonary OHHHH-edema!

    Trouble swallowing? Maybe it's his OHHHH-esophagus!

    lol

    Not dyspn-OHHHH-ea, Cuts?

    I guess there should not be much trouble in following either dictionary. After all the British only add an occasional o or an a here and there. Once you get the hang of the few terms that are different, then I guess it should be smooth sailing. What you usually need the dictionary for is to look up what 'torsades de pointes' means, and that being a French term, would spell the same on both sides of the Atlantic.

    Btw, Cuts, did you learn medicine in Hungarian there?

    Nope. It was all in English... good thing too, Hungarian is a TOUGH language (purportedly only 2nd to Japanese) to learn...

    (I did learn it though -- for the women <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> )
