neuro exam in spanish

  1. 0
    Does anyone know of any online resources where I can find a complete neuro exam translated into Spanish? A few months ago a former coworker of mine came across one but I can't remember where she found it. I just started at a hospital in Florida and have already come across numerous Spanish only speaking patients. Frankly, I am amazed that we do not already have these resources on the floor! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have used the translator in the back of the TABERS encyclopedia we have on our unit. I picked 5or 6 things the patient should easily understand and kept them in my pocket until I was comfortable using them. hope this helps

    There are also a good number of specifically medical English/Spanish translation books. My favorite was one that had wire loops (like a notebook), which made it easy to flip through pages and it stayed open where I wanted it to stay open. I used it on a medical trip to Mexico and then left it with the nursing school that I traveled with for the next group.

    It had sections for everything from OB to neuro.

    Search on ebay or Amazon.com for English/spanish medical and you should turn up a good number of books, none of them very expensive.

    A reference book like that is probably easier to use than an online resource.

    Hello:

    I am registered nurse in spain where I am working; I find very interesting your article; you look very interested in that.


    One can consider that there are two kind of languages:

    speaking languages (english, spanish, german...)
    psychological languages: behaviour and the way people think and move their body, that is people with problems do not sleep, one can understand looking their eyes they are bad; clothes, hair color and other takes part in this language.

    I think you do not need a translator o book, you can analize these expresions, but If you really think is important I would translate these tests (I talk an Spanish perfect) for you and I believe we can publish some translation, if copyright made it possible, on this way I can do curriculum).

    Babelfish is alright for the occasional word, but it can lead you FAR off track, especially in regard to sentences or command phrases like you might need for a neuro exam.
