Chapter 23. DRUGS AND MEDICAL INFORMATION > General Medical Searching

General Medical Searching

But that's not to say the Internet isn't useful. Recently I scratched my eye. After a trip to the doctor and a couple of days of wearing a very chic eyepatch, I got online and researched eye scratches. I discovered what causes them, how they are treated, and how to avoid them in the future. In other words, I used the Internet to support a trip to the doctor by getting additional information that the doctor didn't have time to give me and in some cases that I didn't know enough to ask.

NOTE

In this chapter I'm discussing general searches for condition information. But you can also try searchable subject indexes, as long as you use just the name of the disorder. For example, search Yahoo's directory for “tinnitus.” It won't give you as wide a scope of information as Google, but it'll give you some basic information to get started.
