SI Units for Clinical Data How Many? A Dictionary of Units of Measurement © Russ Rowlett and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Table of Contents About the Dictionary Using the Dictionary SI Units for Clinical Data The following table provides factors for converting conventional units to SI units for selected clinical data. Source: JAMA Author Instructions. Conversion: to convert from the conventional unit to the SI unit, multiply by the conversion factor; to convert from the SI unit to the conventional unit, divide by the conversion factor.
