    What does " C3-C4, incomplete, on the vent" mean?

    Context:

    I thought that I'd start a new thread about how to change doctors.

    My Dad is C3-C4, incomplete, on the vent. He has gone to a rehab hospital (which was very disappointing) and is now in a LT sub-acute/hospital. This is the only LT sub-acute/hospital which will take vent patients in my city -- and, my Dad was considered "lucky" to get into it (the approval may have stepped on a few toes).

    My father is an incomplete quadriplegic. He has a spinal lesion at the level of cervical vertibrae 3-4. He is on a ventilator.

    Thanks for that. I had not the slightest idea what the OP meant.

    I'm not sure. It seems to mean "long term".
