|Italian term or phrase: sat. 98% in a.a. auscultazione polmonare sp|
|This is from a medical report on someone who has previously been drug tested for doping during a sports event.|
The full line in Italian is:
EO: PA 140/76 mmHg, FC 75 bpm, sat. 98% in a.a. auscultazione polmonare sp
Any suggestions gratefully received!
|saturation 98% on room air; unremarkable findings on auscultation|
First off, these are two separate things. You need to either use a comma, semicolon or a full stop between them...
Secondly, saturation 98% on room air just means that they have not measured it while the patient was on oxygen.
Auscultation is unremarkable means that normal breath sounds (vesicular breath sounds), without any adventitious sounds (rales, etc), were heard with a stethoscope...

saturation 98% on room air pulmonary auscultation
EO stands for "esame obiettivo", a physical exam.
Saturation measures the percentage of hemoglobin binding sites in the bloodstream occupied by oxygen.
"in a.a" stands for "in aria ambientale", i.e. the patient breathing normal air with no supplementary oxygen supply.
"auscultazione polmonare" - listening to the lungs with a stethoscope.
I am perplexed as to what "sp" means though. I will keep searching.
