  I've seen mixed comments and not all the "acceptable" abbreviations are listed on the USMLE website.

Is it ok to abbreviate the following in this way?

CV / Heart: -m / -r / -g = no murmurs, no rubs, no gallops
Chest: -r/-r/-s/-w = no rales; no rhonchi; no stridor; no wheezing

  Common Abbreviations for the Patient Note(source U.S.M.L.E. )

Note: This is not intended to be a complete list of acceptable abbreviations, but rather represents the types of common abbreviations that may be used on the patient note. There is no need to use abbreviations on the patient note; if you are in doubt about the correct abbreviation, write it out.
