I've missed to add some health abbreviations related to sense organs portions. As a learner of free medical transcription online, you should know about these important abbreviations that are used by physicians in training voice files and live voice files. You should all read and keep all these six abbreviations in your memory.
The abbreviation for right ear is AD, which means auris dextra. Left ear is AS, which can be extended as auris sinistra, and to express both ears by the abbreviation AU, which is auris uterque. Left eye is termed as OS, its extension is oculus sinister. Right eye is denoted as OD, which means oculus dexter. Both eyes can be denoted as oculus uterque. HEENT is head, ears, eyes, nose, and throat. HEENT is often used in all medical transcription files in the physical examination area. EENT denotes ears, eyes, nose, and throat. A tube is placed in the eardrum, which is called in short as PE tube, which can be extended as polyethylene ventilating tube.
