Are you ok Annie?

Tonight I read an interesting story which I which to share with you.

In the 19th century, a young French woman committed suicide by jumping into the Seine.

After she was pulled out, she was left in the morgue so that someone would recognize her as well.
No one showed up, but for the coroner, she was beautiful so he made a death mask from her face.
Her mask fascinated Parisians so much that it became fashionable for everyone to have her character in their house.
A couple of years later, the Norwegian toy manufacturer was asked to make a doll for CPR.

The owner of the factory remembered the face of the Frenchwoman and made the face of the doll after her – naming her Ana.
Medical students, especially in the United States, are still learning about these dolls.
And every time they learn to ask for verbalization from the patient, asking: Are you ok, Ana?
What became slang for someone who is in big trouble, whence the refrain of Michael Jackson’s song-Smooth Criminal.https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=michael+jackson+are+you+ok+annie

This story left a strong impression on me, and I remember my dentist managing to ask me the same question.I am happy because future doctors are being trained to communicate with patients.

I’m not a doctor, but I want to ask you, Are you ok Annie?
