Medical
Danish term or phrase: t.l.
A patient who has a fracture in their lumbar spine must be 't.l.':
"pt. forblive sengeliggende t.l."
"pt. skal være t.l. indtil forholdene omkring hvirvel corporas bagkant er afklaret"
"pt. har været t.l., vendes som træstamme"

I think it must be to do with lying down, but can't think what the abbreviation stands for exactly. Any suggestions appreciated.

Thank you
