MeSH 2012

"It might not be as cool to look through as the Neiman Marcus Christmas catalog, but I still love to browse through the yearly new and updated MeSH terms.

A whopping 454 new descriptors have been added, 42 terms have been replaced with new terminology, and 15 have been deleted.

Some terms I'm very happy to see added. These include:

  • Depressive Disorder, Treatment Resistant
  • Kangaroo-Mother Care Method
  • Numbers Needed to Treat
  • Physical Therapists
  • Social Networking
  • White Coat Hypertension

Others I found interesting, though I'm not sure I'd ever use them:

Happy browsing!"
