    Hi dear forum!

    Does anybody know what G/F/R stands for in this context?

    Patient Physical Examination:
    RESPIRATORY: Good b/l air entry to bases, no crackles/wheezes, no increased WOB (work of breathing?) specifically no G/F/R


    Many thanks for your help!!!

    grunting, flaring or retracting - those are three signs of increased WOB in an infant (yes - WOB = work of breathing)
