Best Human Anatomy Posters Are Right Under Your Nose

ESTIMATE 1-MINUTE READ

There is some confusion over what ENT means among the general population, with many viewing it as an abbreviation for “entertainer.”

According to an Urban Dictionary, “Ent” is, “slang for somebody who smokes cannabis.” On this site, we favor the medical nomenclature. A significant percentage of ClinicalPosters customers are otolaryngologists. They are a part of the oldest medical specialty in the United States. Life with a malfunctioning ear, nose or throat (ENT) can range from inconvenient to problematic. Any signi­ficant otolaryngological anomaly is met with anxiety and panic.

It is easier to cope with temporary symptoms like a sore throat or stuffy nose. These may result from a cold, flu or from yelling during an inclement sporting event. Ringing in your ears, a broken nose, disequilibrium, hearing loss, strep throat, tonsillitis, oral melonotic macule, and throat cancer are some of the more serious conditions prompt­ing a visit to an otolaryngo­logist. These professionals treat significant infections, benign and malignant tumors, or facial trauma and deformities with cosmetic plastic and reconstructive surgery.

New Titles Available

For at least eight years, the otolaryngology anatomy poster of choice has been, appropriately entitled, Ear, Nose & Throat. It does not discuss pathology or physiology but clearly illustrates essential pathways, providing useful visual context during patient consulta­tions. The poster entitled Anatomy of the Inner Ear has been globally discontinued. Any you are able to acquire are limited to what a reseller has remaining in stock. While this might signal a pending update, no explanation has yet been offered.

Compatible Standard and Oversize Posters

ClinicalPosters offers alternative titles with slightly larger 22x28 inch dimensions to fill in the void. One is similarly named: Ear, Nose and Throat (no ampersand). Understanding Sinusitis, Understanding RhinitisThe EarMiddle Ear Infections and Common Cold vs the Flu round out the list of alternative oversize anatomy poster titles. Each is an excellent reference for otolaryngology exam rooms.
