We suggest that this manoeuvre should be considered in cases of intractable hiccups before proceeding with pharmacological agents.

No the idea of an old dude getting fingered to cure his hiccups is still funny. I was pointing out that it wasn't new.
It would be interesting to find out who thought to do it to the first guy.

So, how do I give myself hiccups? 'Cause it'd be great if I could get my health insurance to cover that sort of thing.

I think they need to be "intractable."

That would be hilarious if you got caught for that.

Does this mean people have been fingering each other for hiccups for 20 years?
