Norwegian to English translations [PRO]
Medical - Medical (general) / measure SVT
Norwegian term or phrase: Svk
Spelled as Svk and SVK in the document, Svk-innleggelse og stell
It's to reduce the danger of infection and allow SVT to be measured correctly.
The 'k' = kateter; is it a supraventricular catheter or similar?
Advice appreciated.
