BUN = blood urea nitrogen; CPAP = continuous positive airway pressure; CPR = cardiopulmonary resuscitation; GCS = Glasgow coma scale; HCT = Hematocrit; WBC = white blood cell; PT = prothrombin time; PTT = partial thromboblastin time.

  • 1 These two elements may be considered differently. The first is in binary form (y/n), but the second may get more different values.
