We use a lot of abbreviations and acronyms in medicine, but the other day I was introduced to one I hadn’t heard before.
While discussing the care of a severely ill very elderly patient, a colleague said:
“MFB, CFD” he again said. The blank look on my face must have transmitted my incoherence, so he elaborated:
“Measure For Box, Call For Dirt”.
Just another medical acronym for my vocabulary.
