Doctor Reacts To Nickelodeon Medical Scenes

I was a BIG Nickelodeon kid in the 90s. I loved the cartoons like Doug, Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, so today I say down to look back through my favorite childhood shows to see what kind of medical information there was, and check in to see if things were accurate. What about when Otto broke his leg in Rocket Power? Or when Rocko had appendicitis during Rocko’s Modern Life? I even took a look at more modern shows like The Loud House and Avatar The Last Airbender to see what Nicktoons are up to these days. I couldn’t believe the stuff Jimmy Neutron got up to inside Carl’s head or poor Cosmo’s broken Fagilgli Gland in The Fairly Oddparents. What shows or scenes did I miss? Let me know down below!

I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!

    A head mirror is a simple diagnostic device, stereotypically worn by physicians, but less so in recent decades as they have become somewhat obsolete. A head mirror is mostly used for examination of the ear, nose & throat.

    A head mirror is mostly used for examination of the ear, nose & throat. It comprises a circular concave mirror, with a small hole in the middle, and is attached to a head band. The mirror is worn over the physician's eye of choice, with the concave mirror surface facing outwards and the hole directly over the physician's eye, providing illumination like a ring light. In use, the patient sits and faces the physician. A bright lamp is positioned adjacent to the patient's head, pointing toward the physician's face and hence towards the head mirror. The light from the lamp reflects off the mirror, along the line of sight of the user, with the light being somewhat concentrated by the curvature of the mirror. When used properly, the head mirror thus provides excellent shadow-free illumination.

    It was a reflector. Before modern lightbulbs and battery powered flashlights, when a doctor needed to see the back of your throat the only way to shine a light there was with a mirror, hence, the shiny mirror attached to a headband.

    I agree with you on tonsillectomy Life has been around for 4 billion years an they have probably evolved for a good reason, like being the first line of oral immune defense after saliva. The problem is unethical conmanship around them. A doctor, obviously from a private hospital tried to get me to have them removed for tonsilloliths. I eat healthy and no longer have them. And I do not use alcohol based gargles due to risk of oral and esophageal cancer.

One common answer would be "im a good person Lord i should be let in" He will take those people and cast them into hell.

Also, awesome video. I laughed way too hard everytime he questioned the thing on the doctors heads.
