Subject: [multimachine] OT: stat
A service call came into the shop this morning -- "STAT!" That started a
conversation about just exactly what is "STAT" short for?
I think most everyone knows that in medical parlance, "STAT" means
"immediately". It is not an acronym. It is actually a shortened form of
the Latin word "statim". I know that now because I searched "medical
term stat" which lead me to the information and the source of the
information. I thought that reference library was pretty cool and passed
it along to you.
Did you tweet it? I am about to sign-up on twitter. I didn't think I
would ever do that.
