 etymology of "stat"

We know what "stat implies"- do this right quick... but where does this term
come from?....is it an acronym? it seems to always be written in caps    or
is it an abbreviation? ...just wondering...

        The word is "statim".
        As with most medical terms, it's likely Latin.

I have a good $8 Latin dictionary which helps clear up a lot of
strange medical words, such as "septum pellucidum" (transparent
membrane).  Might be a good investment for you, too.
