BBB

 

1. Blood Brain Barrier, a thin layer of cells between the blood system of the brain and the blood system of the rest of the body that keeps out toxins and other immune cells to prevent the brain from getting damaged.

2. A slang term for the sheet between the operating table and the anesthesiologist, the brain referring to the anesthesiologist and the blood(and thus the lack of brain) referring to the surgeons.
