SALUTE – At the emergency room – Al pronto soccorso

Adesso vediamo un dialogo utile, che si svolge al pronto soccorso.


Good afternoon, sir. What’s happened?

Man: Good afternoon. I’ve just fallen off my bicycle and hit a tree.
Doctor: Okay, I see. Your ankle seems a bit swollen. Can you stand on it?
Man: No, it hurts a lot.
Doctor: It may be broken, so we’ll take an X-ray of it. Did you hit your head, too?
Man: Yes, and my ribs hurt, too and I also have some bruises.
Doctor: Do you fell nauseous?
Man: No, I didn’t hit my head so hard.
Doctor: Yes, I can see the wound. I don’t think you have concussion. But if you feel dizzy or
nauseous, please come back for a check-up.
Man: What does the X-ray show?
Doctor: It’s not broken; you sprained your ankle when you twisted it.
Man: So, it won’t need to be put in plaster.
Doctor: No, just need to rest it.
