Medical - Medical (general)
Spanish term or phrase: VOC
Hello!
I was translating an A&E medical report of a person who has fallen injurying their rib cage.
This is the paragraph dedicated to the physical examination:
EF (exploración física): BEG (buen estado general), VOC, NH (normohidratado), NC (normocoloreado), eupnoico en reposo.
Does anyone know what VOC might mean? I have only found one source using it as "validez de cognición" (it was a manual translated from English though), and then an anglicism "volatile organic compounds", but none, especially the second, seems relevant to me.
Any ideas?
Many thanks in advance!
