Thread: HENT abbreviation

    Default HENT abbreviation

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can anyone tell me what the abbreviation HENT stands for?

    It was used in the same sentence with HEENT but supposedly stands for something different.

    I searched all my references and couldn't come up with anything. I looked it up on the web and came up with (Human Equilibrative Nucleoside Transporter) but I don't know if that's what your looking for. Were they maybe just referencing the head, ears, nose, throat from the HEENT??? Sorry I can't help more....I would check with the doc. to make sure.

    Angie, thanks so much for your help - I came up with the same as you when I researched it. I have no idea what this stands for but it was listed separate from and in addition to HEENT.
