Spanish term or phrase: vSan (abbreviation)
Hi all,

I've come across the term several times in the "Pruebas complementarias" section of a hospital discharge report. Examples of where it appears:

(vSan)Pla - LACTATO;c 1.63 mmol/L (intervalo de referencia 0.7- 2.1)
vSan - OXÍGENO; p 44.1 mmHG (intervalo de referencia 30 - 50)
vSan - HIDRÓGENOCARBONATO; B 21.7 mmol/L (intervalo de referencia 22 - 26) etc.

I'm pretty sure the "San" bit is blood or something related to it, but not so sure about the "v"... I was thinking maybe it's short for "vasos sanguíneos"?

The report was issued by a hospital in Alicante and target country is UK.

I'd be grateful if anyone could shed any light on this.

Many thanks,
Nisah

agree  Chema Nieto Castañón: Si, efectivamente; sangre venosa. La referencia es relevante porque los valores de referencia (de oxígeno por ejemplo) pueden llegar a ser drásticamente diferentes en comparación con una muestra de sangre arterial.
