RICE: Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation

此處的RICE是一個 acronym

acronym: 頭字語,是一種縮寫,但他跟一般縮寫 abbreviation 不同,
差別在 acronym 要當作一個單字讀,如:SARS, SCUBA

而一個 abbrevaition 是指要讀單一個字母,如:USA
(故 USA 不是 acronym,而是 abbrevaition )

其他 acronym 如:

radar: radio detecting and ranging
scuba: self-contained underwater breathing apparatus

注意: AIDS 也是 acronym,應讀作 [ edz ]
