Medicine 醫科 (ji1 fo1)

Some basic medical terms in a set of 12 flashcards. Two of the terms (doctor and nurse) are also in the occupations set, but I didn’t want to leave these out!

醫生 ji1 sang1
doctor

護士 wu6 si6
nurse

醫院 ji1 jyun2

joek6

探熱針 taam3 jit6 zam1
thermometer
N.B. Thermometer can also be called 體溫計 (tai2 wan1 gai3) meaning ‘body temperature meter’. 探熱針 (taam3 jit6 zam1) means ‘needle to gauge heat’.

聽診器 teng1 can2 hei3
stethoscope
N.B. Stethoscope is also called 聽筒 (teng1 tung2) colloquially and this is arguably more common, but this is also used for earphones and headphones (which can be confusing), so I have used the technically more accurate term.
