What does ABT stand for?

  1. 0 Hi, I am a new graduate and just started working in LTC...I also just moved to a new state, and have noticed that different slang and abbreviations are used here.
    Anyways, the nurses there are always saying "abt/gingivitis...abt/uti"...
    What are they talking about????
    I thought 'abt' stood for autologous blood transfusion.
