Aren't medical abbreviations fun!

MRC, TR, SOB, HTN, JVP....what a collection of abbreviations!

...and it's only taken me half an hour to decipher the letter I received today from the meeting I had with a member of my consultant's team 10 days ago.

An interesting read, with good news, bad news and food for thought.

How many of you have had such a letter and thought "Can someone translate this!?"

  • Yep not a clue what any of that means, so well done on working it out 😗

  • Normally (although not necessarily ) some are these:

    SOB- shortness of breath

    TR- tricuspid regurgitation

    JVP- Jugular Venous Pressure

    HTN-Hypotension or high blood pressure

    not a clue with MRC.

  • I had to Google them lol x

  • Not all that useful to have a copy of a letter you can't read! If you're ever struggling in future you can always give us a call and we can try to decipher things for you!
