    Hi All,

    I'm not sure about the preposition "for sensitivity" in this clause:

    Test abdominal reflexes for sensitivity.

    Here is my attempt.

    Probar los reflejos abdominales para determinar si hay sensibilidad (abdominal).

    Are there alternative ways to say this?

    Thanks.

    Your translation is correct. By "sensitivity" they mean that they want to see if the response is exaggerated (hyperreflexia)
