Medical - Medical (general) / medical report
German term or phrase: VEP, MEP, SEP, MER, EDSS
In a medical report there are abbreviations like VEP. MEP and SEP primarily related to Electrophysiology. What could they stand for??
Multiple Sklerose vom schubförmigen Verlaufstyp - EDSS 2,5. In that sentence what does EDSS stand for?? Under clinical findings , I see the terms MER and MEP in the sentence:MER rechts betont, keine pathologische Reflexe aber Amplitudenreduktion der MEP zum rechten Bein.

Can anyone offer assistance ? Thanks so much in advance!
