In order to understand the diagnoses of potential medical users I assume?

 

Personally I don't know how useful this will be. Since for axample CHF congestive heart failure...the meaning of the abbreviations is not any more comprehansible then the abbreviation itself to a lay person.

 

I am a retired medical person and I'd suggest focussing in on the things that would likely be encountered.

Yeah some of the abbreviations are not that usefull on this forum.. I don't mind. Knowing more is knowing more and knowledge is power..

 

I can add a few if you like hehe... But again, they are not all that usefull.

No disease would be nice to have as a name,i guess.

But i do suspect sometimes of being singled by the gods for pranks . :no
