What we do in between patients

PTR
What does this abbreviation FFMN stand for?

Registrar
"Fasting from midnight".

PTR
I wouldn't abbreviate midnight as MN.  I'd just write FFM.

Consultant
But that would be "Fat free mass".

PTR
What's that?

Consultant
It's the old-fashioned way of saying "Lean body mass", your weight if you weren't obese.

Registrar
Oh, by "mass" I thought you meant a church service, one just for skinny people.

Consultant
So a fat free mass would be where you give the anorexic the wafer and she just vomits it back up again.
