I have a lab print out that says DLT 400 mm/hr. I can't find DLT in any of my diagnostic test books or online. Is this some sort of misprint or something?? What is it?!

Its a typo. I looked in several places trying to find what this might be with no success.

Only possible thing I can think of is diltiazem level, but those wouldn't be the units, and it's not commonly done. Prob a mistake.

If this came from a patient chart, call the lab at the hospital and ask them what it could be. If it came from a handout call your instructors before clinical and tell them the dilemma you have had trying to find this thing so they know you haven't been sitting on your thumbs doing nothing.
