Suggestion for Medical Subject Headings Change

Suggested change:
(One- or two-sentence statement of what you feel is needed.)

How often have you encountered this concept?

Reason for suggesting change:
(If suggesting a new term, please mention the sense or context in which the term occurs if you cannot define it.)

(One or more authoritative citations, either from MEDLINE or other sources, are requested, particularly if the concept or term is quite new or rarely written about.)

Suggestions are reviewed for literary warrant and other criteria of usefulness, for reproducibility in use, and for understandability. In general, we avoid short acronyms because of the ambiguities they create. Please note that the library does not re-index articles already indexed.
