Spanish term or phrase: mm/l.ah
I think this may be a typo, but the faxed small print is so fuzzy that...well, I'm sure you all are used to it too.

From an arterial blood gas analysis, referring to ERYTHROCYTE SEDIMENTATION RATE (ESR).

Here is a selection:

leukocytes 5.5 x 109/L, ESR 48 ***mm/l.ah***, prothrombin time 100%.

I need to know for sure how this is measured, i.e. the units.

Explanation:
Hi,
This refers to the reading of hte ESR after the first hour. Some laboratories also give the reading after 2 hours but it is not that common. There are many ways of putting it: mm/1 h; mm 1st h; mm 1 h; mm 1 hour. Choose a style which goes best with the rest of your text.
Hope that helps.
