DOV
Pronounced 'Dove.' An informal(/irreverent) medical term for a patient who is alive and 'stable,' but being supported by a ventilator and generally in a coma, with little chance of ever recovering function. Stands for 'Dead On the Vent(ilator).'
It's been a slow night; we got a GSW around 2:00, but otherwise just been the DOVs.
