Seamus's medicobabble exposed!

The "antecubital area" is the area on your arm opposite your elbow. If you've had blood drawn, they probably got it from there. Seamus is attempting to find a relationship between ethnicity and swelling of that area after a needle has been inserted into a vein in that region.

Note that if you associate with people under the age of 30, revealing that you know the actual, scientific name of the "elbow-pit" (the antecubital fossa) will score you some major geek points. Whether this is a good or bad thing depends on the other properties of said friends.
