Section III. PRESCRIPTION INTERPRETATION
1-25. INTRODUCTION
NOTE:
For a thorough review of prescription interpretation, see Subcourse MD0801.
Many of the calculations performed in the pharmacy rely on the pharmacy
technician's ability to interpret a prescription. Two significant factors, in regard to
prescription interpretation, are the METRIC LINE and ROMAN NUMERALS. Most of
the weighing and measuring is done in the metric system with:
a.
Solids being weighed in the unit of grams or parts of a gram.
b.
Liquids being measured in milliliters or parts of milliliters.
1-26. METRIC LINE
a.  The METRIC LINE acts as a decimal point for both grams and milliliters. The
unit gram is indicated if the substance is a solid and milliliters if the substance is a liquid.
(1)
Prescription #1.
(2)
Prescription #2.
(3)
Prescription #3.
