Edt ?

  1. A friend is taking an at home medical transcription class and she's stuck on an abbreviation.

    Assessment/PLAN
    1. Upper respiratory infection
    2. Pharyngitis
    3. EDT
    Z pack, curtail po intake, Allegra-D prn

    Any guesses as to what EDT stands for in this scenario? Thanks

    Nonstandarda abbreviation - this is one reason we have eliminated so many abbreviations - this could be any number of things.

    Clinical Use Of Electrodermal Testing (EDT) in Viral Infection can distinguish between viral etiology and other pathologies, e.g., viral nasal catarrh versus allergic rhinitis; viral pharyngitis versus streptococcal pharyngitis

    I'd think it was unlikely to refer to electrodermal testing unless she worked for a homeopath, which would make the Allegra and Z-Pak an odd treatment.

    :yeahthat:

    Only EDT =Eastern Daylight Time

    Think they should list "EDT" as unknown, need to clarify with doctor ....not listed in medical dictionary, etc

    endotracheal? electrodermal testing sounds good. Google Hulda Clark for more information.

    I got the same thing as NurseKaren got.

    EDT = Eastern Daylight Time

    Thank goodness many of those abbreviations are going away if not already gone.
