Medical - Medical (general)
Spanish term or phrase: FC: 51 x\' (x\' ?)
In medical notes, the vital signs have been written as:
TA: 107/71 mmHg, FC: 72 x', FR: 18 x', T: 36.8 etc.
I am wondering what x' signifies.

"x" means "por" and «’» means minute(s) («"» means second(s).

Needless to say, FC = frecuencia cardiaca = heart rate = HR.

"x': Por minuto"

And bpm = beats per minute.

In other contexts too it's quite common to find ' and " for minutes and seconds, for example 4' 30" for 4 minutes 30 seconds.
