    SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads)
    Could somebody help me out with these abbreviations:

    Regarding cardiovascular system, what does RRR mean? What does the "nl" in "nl S1 S2" mean? What's "no M/R/G" mean?

    Regarding the lungs, what does "CTA Bilaterally" mean?

    Obviously just starting out. Any help appreciated.

    RRR= regular rate & rhythm
    nl = normal
    M/R/G = murmurs/rubs/gallops
    CTAB = clear to auscultation bilaterally

    FA has lots of these if you want to check others.
