Determining Weight Measurements
How to Determine Weight Measurements on a Physician's Mechanical Beam Scale
Have you ever asked yourself:
- How does the scale in a doctor's office work?
- How do I read the lines on the scale?
- How do I determine my weight or a patient's weight with a beam scale?
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 weight. Instead, this course targets one specific skill that many beginning students find challenging—reading a physician's mechanical beam scale to determine weight measurements.
