Does anyone know what RADz is?

  1. I work in a long term facility and a resident came in with the diagnosis of RADz but I have been unable to find out what it is. Can anyone help me?

    Could the "z" have been a typo, leaving you with Reactive Airway Disease? Or is that just a peds thing? (I'm a PICU RN)

    Agree. Some people abbreviate 'disease' as 'dz.'
