My medical dictionary says it is a "esfigmotonometro" with an accent over the second to last "o."

Hummm confused , maybe because the 1970 Spanish supplement to the three language Veillon/Nobel Medical Dictionary (English/German/French) we have in my office doesn't have the English spelled "sphygmomanometer" but rather "sphygmomotometer" (item 34936). Google seach in English wants to spell it "sphygmomonometer," and doesn't find the medical dictionary spelling. My 1960 edition of Webster's New World Dictionary has "sphygmomanometer" too. But who really cares as long as the farmacia has one you can buy however it is spelled!

The pharmacist's sister wasn't very nice, so I didn't get to buy a sphyg %^$#&&^%&^%&%thing wink

Thanks for everyone's advice and help though. It was an interesting challenge which I enjoyed. The ones I found were way to expensive, but it was fun trying to have a sensible discussion in the shops cool

A relaxing day ahead after 5 days of hyperactivity, today we are going to chill by the swimming pool at Casa de Campo cool ... who knows, maybe someone will have a thingy to sell there? :p

OK I'm off before I write more rubbish!

Jo

Hello Jo-Anne,

I came back on saturday as projected, although with a huge jet-lag and a headache.

I am sorry I didn't feel yesterday like meeting anybody. Sorry about the sphyg %^$#&&^%&^%&%thing. laugh

I leave this very afternoon for Chekia and Poland, so I won't be able to row with you at the Casa de Campo lake. :p

I won't see you this time, I am afraid. frown
