barouche

Operating theatre trolley (South Australia): The patient was put on a barouche and taken to the operating theatre.

Contributor's comments: Despite being unique to South Australia, it's not all that well known outside the medical setting. I remember being a radiography student, and being given the task of finding out what a barouche was. I had no idea where to start!

Contributor's comments: Barouche also means the same thing in NewYork and I have heard it in NE Kentucky.
