examination table / exam table

Embora também concorde com a proposta da Marlene, e ouça muitas vezes o termo, não parece ter muitas ocorrências na internet, enquanto que se puser "examination table", por exemplo, encaminha-o exactamente para este tipo de mesas.

Aparece também na tradução da infopedia:

nome feminino
1. (de consultório) examination table; exam table
2. (mobiliário) couch; ottoman

Há vários tipos de camas de hospital, mas a marquis é articulada e ajustável e muito útil para o tratamento de pacientes tratados em suas residências.
