When I teach the difference between ATM and Field tags (Single Citation
Matcher) and MeSH, I usually use the example with Blood.
This is good because you can find an author called Blood, you can find a
journal tirled Blood and you can look for Blood in Title/Abstract.
There is one article where one of the authors is Blood and is using Blood
in [tiab] in the journal Blood.
So they can understand how Pubmed translate their query when they use it
like Google and the big difference when they use Mesh terms.
