    I'm not sure about the second a in CAART, but here is what OLD CART (used for symptom assessment) usually means:

    O = onset
    L = location
    D = duration
    C = characteristics of symptom or complaint
    A = aggrevating or associated factors
    R = relieving factors
    T = treatment (what has been used to relieve symtom)

    My prof. taught us 3 more questions that go with this.
    O for onset: where where you when it started? (i.e. what were you doing?)

    C: count (pain on 1-10 scale)

    T: thought (what do you think it could be?)

    Good luck!

    FYI -

    OPQRST is another one you'll commonly see. It's particularly relevant to the assessment of pain, but can be used with other complaints.

    Onset
    Provoking/palliating factors
    Quality
    Radiation
    Severity
    Time
