German term or phrase: 94/102 mm n. W.
The text is about erythrocyte sedimentation rates... "einen Wert von 94/102 mm n. W.". Can anyone tell me what the n. W. could stand for?

English translation:nach Westergen / according to Westergen-method
Explanation:
This is only a hint, perhaps you can make use of it:


SED rate, or ESR, or erythrocyte sedimentation rate is a test to see how much inflammation is in your system. In some cases, cancer growth can increase SED rate, while there are a host of other reasons that a SED rate can be elevated. The method by which your SED rate is calculated is your blood is timed on how long it takes to travel down a certain amount of space in a test tube. The most common methods used today are the Westergen and modified Westergen (probably named after the person who discovered it). In men, the normal is below 8-12 (depends who you ask). For women, they usually exhibit a higher SED rate and their normal is something under about 20. When diagnosed with HD SED rate is sometimes used to determine if you are truly a b-symptom stager if your SED rate is above 50.
