Dutch term or phrase: vtk en d
This abbreviation is listed in a hospital maternity transfer discharge form. This appears under the discharge data section for the child, a male newborn twin testing positive for AGS/CHT/PKU. The item is - "Onstlag medicatie : vtk en d". Its on a fax so it looks like it could just as well be "vtkend". I think the first option is it though - the font size is tiny too. I thought this might mean unspecified medication for ventricular tachycardia. That doesn't seem like the best possibility though since it cites a condition, not the medication in that section and I wonder if that is a common or accepted practice on such forms. There is the question of "d" as well, or rather, "en d". I'm wondering if that could be a typo for Latin "in d./in dies" too. The whole thing is mystifying...
