If Liz can't find it, it's a hard one!

I came across the link below, which is related to breathing and uses AMB as an abbreviation for ambient air pressure. I have no way of knowing if this is a widely used abbreviation, but it does seem to be a scientific source.

Explanation:

I came across the link below, which is related to breathing and uses AMB as an abbreviation for ambient air pressure. I have no way of knowing if this is a widely used abbreviation, but it does seem to be a scientific source.

Example sentence(s):
  • Partial pressures of oxygen for increasing altitude, as measured in the ambient air (AMB), in the airways after the inspired air has been warmed and humidified (INSP), in the alveolus after CO2 has been added (ALV) and in the arterial blood (ART).
