Were DCCT/NGSP values made available to some physicians and/or patients when only SI units
were on the printed reports?
The unit of measure mg/L should be used only when referring to SI units
or when national or international guidelines require or recommend that the concentration of an analyte be expressed in that unit of measure, such as for high-sensitivity C-reactive protein.
Resistance in the SI unit
ohm can be measured, for example, with a calculable capacitor experiment .
Although used in many countries, the reporting of plasma glucose concentrations only in SI units
In the end, the CCU penned Recommendation U 1 (1998) 'Special name for the SI unit
mole per second, the katal, for the expression of catalytic activity' [page 54 in Ref.
Coverage progresses from basic arithmetic skills through decimals and other fractions, SI units
, drug calculation, intravenous fluid and drug administration, and physiological measurements.
A glossary, SI units
and their conversions, and a list of print and electronic resources are also included.
In this edition, the editors have switched from cgs to SI units
(unit conversions are provided in an appendix) and introduce computational astronomy with computer problems and complete codes.
Each table includes age and sex, population sources, specimen type, methods, comments, and sometimes SI units
For the new edition, the three just mentioned sections contain new coverage of, respectively, metric and SI units
, common procedures for extraction and analysis in soil and plant testing, and the use of electron microscopy and nuclear magnetic resonance.
Appendices contain tables, a mathematics review, the periodic table of elements, SI units
, a Nobel prize winners.
However, by showing how the definitions of the seven base units of the current SI also fix the numerical values of a set of seven reference constants (broadly interpreted) when the values of these constants are expressed in their coherent SI units
, and how the definition of the current SI can be recast into the same form as that of the revised SI under consideration, we show that the revision is not as radical a departure from the current SI as it might initially seem.
