Just got back from the TEDMED conference where I was happy to see a ZDoggMD song at the Kennedy Center Opera House. They showed his hilarious educational video about self-examination for testicular cancer – Manhood in the Mirror.
For more ZDoggMD medical humor, check out his sites:
This medical humor video was submitted by Dr. Patricia Raymond (AKA “Butt Meddler”) just in time for Colon Cancer Awareness Month. “Lookin’ Up My Back Door” is a friendly, funny way of reminding people about their screening colonoscopy. Check it out:
Even more so after this video, I remain a strong advocate for changing the name of GoLytely to GoProfusely.
This time, though, we’re going to poke funny at our respiratory therapy friends… especially those who still, ironically, smoke. If that’s you, take this song as motivation to quit.
“Puffy the RT” is a GiggleMed original put to the “tune” of Frosty the Snowman. You will notice “tune” is in quotes. That’s simply because of my mad skills in singing. I had to channel my inner South Philly.
If any of you have singing skills or think it would be funny to sing this song as a group… make a video and send it our way. (But if you use these lyrics, you must give attribution to GiggleMed.com with something like “Lyrics by GiggleMed.com” or “Inspired by the Lyrics from GiggleMed.com”.)
Our friend Doug is bringing up the bass in this Laryngospasms classic… Breathe
Your favorite songs will never be the same… never.
If you don’t have the Laryngospasms’ CDs, you’re missing out. And if you’re planning an event for the healthcare community, you should invite them for a live performance. Go to their site here: Laryngospasms.
The appropriate use of medical humor could (and should) have an important role in medical education and public awareness. And although I do think everyone’s going a little overboard with their worries about H1N1, I applaud the effort of the United States Department of Health and Human Services in soliciting the public’s help in alerting the public on the importance of washing hands. The 2009 Flu Prevention PSA Contest had over 200 entries this month – some funny, some serious.
On September 22nd at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced the winner of the H1N1 Public Service Announcement Contest. Congratulations to Dr. Clarke of Baldwin, New York for his winning video H1N1 Rap. You can see his video here:
Dr. Clarke… if you’re reading this… First, great job on the video… Second, some advice… if you make a video for Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, then be sure to lose the hand gestures.
The top ten videos from the contest can be found at Flu.gov.
Also, check out Dr. John Clarke’s Health Hop® Music for some pretty awesome CDs for your patients and their families.
