Medical - Medical: Health Care / Medical Invoice
German term or phrase: Packung
In a German medical invoice, prepared pursuant to the GOÄ, the following description of a service:

"530 ***Packung***, Rumpf"

The relevant injury is a rotator cuff tear. Does "Packung" refer to a form of bandaging? "ice pack"?

Any help welcome.

Thanks!
