Get it right! That comment of yours to which I responded had nothing to
do with medical advice to start with; I have no idea where you got the
subject line from.
Perhaps you could try the archives.

Sorry if this has been discussed before. I just
that [[Abdominal thrusts]] gives detailed advice on how to
perform a medical procedure. Maybe there are other such
articles too. Given the fashionable practice of filing
suit whenever a medical procedure fails to work, it seems
to me that this is rather dangerous for Wikipedia.
Wouldn't it be legally safer (and more likely to be
medically correct) if the actual procedure in such articles
was presented as a direct quotation from a named medical
authority? With permission, of course. Maybe there should
also be a disclaimer.

At this point some discussion followed about whether it was a valid word

it up again after two and a half weeks.
