Question Abbreviations not mentioned in the official CS booklet?

I am looking at the abbreviations in the USMLE STEP 2 CS and it appears that not many abbreviations are in the booklet. Even simple things like RRR which in FA means regular rate and rhythm is not in the CS booklet .
What should I do please please help.

You can use abbreviations that are commonly used in practice such as RRR even though they are not mentioned in the official list.

The physicians rating your Patient Note will understand it and there's no problem.
