Lacking a universal forum to create these abbreviations has led to misinterpretation and frequent frustration on the part of many reviewers of health records and parlance. This book has been written with non-medical individuals in mind, and every effort has been made to collect the most frequently used abbreviations. To decipher individually created abbreviations seems a formidable task. Similar abbreviations have different meanings and connotations in different medical specialities and for different individuals in the same medical specialty! They are more the result of habit and extensive use by different individuals and do not follow any specific and established form or order. Thus some may use a specific abbreviation all in capital letters with or without periods, others may use all lowercase letters, and some even may combine capital and lowercase letters. Variations in symbols, Greek, and Latin letters may be used depending on the individual decision or medical specialty. This collection of abbreviations is arranged in alphabetical order, and the original Latin words are italicized wherever needed. Different meanings of an abbreviation are mentioned as well. Different combinations of capital and lowercase letters are given as in most common use. Please note, in certain instances hyphens are used to show how the abbreviations are derived. This collection is in no way a complete list of all the abbreviations and their meanings.
