RE: OT - yo! Nurses! help on this one

Kitty: 1cc = 1 ml: they are completely interchangeable in terms of
pharmaceutical use. For a 21 day dosing regimen, that would equate to
37.8 ml...obviously you got shorted and I would be taking that up with
the dispensing agent in case you've paid for the full course. As to why
no consistency...my guess would be preference on the part of the
prescriber/dispenser since they are understood to be the same
measurement, basically. When you stop to think about the capacity of a
teaspoon as being filled with a certain volume of liquid, then this
makes sense in a relative kind of way.
