Abreviation Help

  1. I am a student, on an elderly placement, and I am stuck on a few abreviations, my mentor gave me to learn, Can anyone help me please? This isn't taking the easy way out, these are all I have list of 50, I have tried searching the web, and hitting the books, but I have had no luck with these:

    CxR
    EMD
    ADR
    PALS
    TCI
    CABG
    TIA
    BD


    Thanks in advance. Whisper
    p.s. I also posted this on the Geriatric Nursing Board. Hope thats allowed.
