English term or phrase: counterflow // pethidine
Suze had sipped her Pinot Noir and smiled brightly into the middle distance,

placenta... pethidine.

remolino, petidina

El personaje se encuentra en una reunión de médicos (muy probablemente obstetras) que hablan un lenguaje incomprensible y se mezclan con las sensaciones del Pinot Noir.
La petidina es un analgésico, te mando dos sitios donde la puedes encontrar:{36D1}&softpage=Document42&x=22&y=4
Pethidine is indicated for the relief of pain. It is particularly useful for the relief of post-operative pain. It may be used in obstetric practice to relieve labour pain.

La frase quedaría algo así como "Suze había probado su Pinot Noir y sonreía al vacío, atrapada en el remolino de un dialecto extraño. Epidural... tanino... nariz (se dice del aroma que se desprende de un mosto o vino, EURODICAUTOM) de zarzamora... placenta... petidina".

Mucha Suerte. GFS
