Now a days with kids texting lingo what is said isnt not mean what you think it is. In healthcare there are so many acronyms its not even funny and some so close can lead to errors if not careful. Although it is pretty funny when you can turn in a chart with a narritive containing nothing but acronyms and everyone knows what you mean, without missing a beat. While on the other hand the people in the comms bay scratch there head at simple ones like: N/V/D = Neasea Vomiting and Dierrhea DM = Diabeties Mellitus favorites I use...especially at work TSTL = Too Stupid To Live NTFB = Not too F@#%!* Bright AOSTF = Arrived on Scene to Find TMB = Too Many Birthdays ART = Assuming Room Tempature... also see DOS DRT = Dead Right There FDGB = Fall Down Go Boom NRITH = Not Right in the head DFO = Done Fell Out (passed out / fainted) DTKC = Doing the Kickin Chicken aka Seizure DOS = Dead on Scene AITB = ALS in the Back (of the ambulance) DS = Drug Seeking Code Brown = Code Yellow = pt has emptied there bladder on the stretcher/cot FF = Frequent Flyer - typically used in a text message when a crew is dispatched to a known address of a FF along with additional information on the person Signal 31 = Getting food/fuel for crew and truck Signal 6 = Distress signal.

Only commonality is 10-4 (everything okay) Then there is the perinial punching bag...TSA Thousands Standing Around Terrorist Support Association Too Stupid for Arbys Theft and Sexual Assault They'll Steal Anything Totally Stupid and Assinine Treason Support Association ...Ready go!
