What is the dx abbreviation

  1. SZ? Is it Siezure? Could someone tell me what it means? Thanks

    SZ in medical abbreviations normally refers to Size, or Seizure.

    Does either make sense in what you are trying to figure out? Sometimes it is easier to figure out with context.

    Hope that helps,

    Thanks, this is a pt dx with SZ, he is on Dilantin, so it makes sense that it would be a seizure. Thanks for the help
