Determining Height Measurements
How to Read the Height Rod on a Physician's Mechanical Beam Scale
Have you ever asked yourself:
- How do I measure height using the scale's height rod in a doctor's office?
- How do I convert inches to feet and inches?
- How do I determine a patient's height using rods that only have inches?
If you seek answers to these questions, then this course is for you.
Don't Worry. This course is not about learning the ENTIRE subject of body measurements. Instead, this course targets one specific skill that many beginning students find challenging—reading the height rod on a physician's mechanical beam scale to determine height measurements.
