Jalyn is a comparatively new drug.  It was approved by FDA on June 14, 2010.  It is a combination of dutasteride and tamsulosin and used for treatment of symptomatic benign hyperplasia in men with enlarged prostate.

After many days, I got into this scenario, very typical for MTs, a stat job, multiple blanks and a common word at all places, (this will be the climax of upcoming movie/novella I am not empty*).  I was hearing "TNK place" at all the blanks and grandpa Stedman's had no entry for TNK, but thanks again to Sherlock "Google" Holmes, who acting on bits of information provided by me, was able to zero in on tenecteplase.  Just another day at office for MT man.

* the movie/novella is in foetal stage right now.

fightobezoar and sneaky eye

Fight-o-bezoar was what I heard and phytobezoar was what was dictated.

Sneaky eye was what I heard and snechiae was what was dictated.  Wikipedia describes snechia as an eye ailment, but according to Stedman's, it can be any adhesion (I was doing a GU file).  Jai Ho Stedman's

Heard something similar to Coumadin + nization, but did not pay any heed, on second hearing was hearing Coumadinization more clearly, and then on googling, I found this, and also the patient had a history of Coumadin use.  Thus, I was able to save some TAT and also keep my pend percentage within checks......:)
