CheckPoint: Equivalent Measurements and Measurement Symbols
In addition to a patient’s weight and dose of medication, a pharmacy technician must have an understanding of the different systems of measurement to prevent medication errors while interpreting prescriptions. The following exercises provide opportunities for you to practice calculating equivalent measurements. Refer to Table 4-5 and Table 4-6 on p. 30 for abbreviations and symbols for ounce in both the apothecary and household systems. Although it is not noted in the text, one cubic centimeter (cc) is equivalent to one mL. For example, 5 cc = 5 mL, 3.1 mL = 3.1 cc, and so forth.
