Question:

You are the general physician to a 50-year-old male who recently suffered from a myocardial infarction. The patient asks you the following question: "What happened to my heart doctor?"

Akshita S.
Answer:

A myocardial infarction, more commonly known as a heart attack, occurs when a portion of your heart looses it's blood supply. For a multitude of reasons, the vessels supplying blood to a part your heart can become obstructed causing this area of cardiac muscle to loose the oxygen it needs. This lack of oxygen can cause the affected cardiac muscle cells to die, leaving scar tissue in its place as the heart recovers.

Question:

Does good communication rely more upon grasping the syntax or semantics of language?

Akshita S.
Answer:

When faced with a comparative dilemma like the question poses above, we often feel the need to support one side in favour of the other. It is surprising how easily we forgo our ability to challenge the validity of questions presented to us. One may argue this inaction stems from our complete acceptance of a question's authority over our own. Alternatively, our eagerness to choose sides may result from a reluctance to expend any effort challenging the author. We must remember to avoid falling prey to this attitude. In light of this reminder, let's respond to the query above with one of our own. Shouldn't good communication rely upon grasping both the syntax and semantics of language?
