经典对话 (D=Doctor L=Lin Hao)
D:Hello. I'm doctor Peterson. What seems to be the trouble with you?
L:I'm not feeling well. I've got a bad sore throat and can't stop coughing.
D:How long have you been feeling like that?
L:Four or five days. And now I'm feeling dizzy. I think I have a fever.
D:Let's check . Any pains?
L:Oh,all over my body. And I've been feeling very weak in my limbs.
D:And how is your appetite?
L:Not very good.Oh,from yesterday,I've got a little pain in my chest when I'm coughing.
D:Let me look at the thermometer. It's 102°F. You are running a fever.
L:Yeah. I think I have a fever.
D:Let me examine you. Show me your tongue, please. Oh, coated. Open your mouth wide and say "ah".
D:The tonsils are inflamed. Now, I'd like to listen to your heart... breathe deeply, please. Well, your heart, chest, and lungs seem to be alright. But you've got a little pain in your chest. I think you'd better take an X-ray picture of your lung.

L:How about It?
D:It shows that your right lung is inflamed a little.
L:Am I over the worst?
D:Don't worry. It's just a severe cold. The bad cough brings the inflammation in your lung. But you should have a blood test.
D:Just to examine whether the cold is caused by bacteria or a virus.
