Questions and answers on how to convert things from one unit or system to another
Forum rules
Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

20 units DO NOT equal 20 cc's. Some syringes, such as insulin syringes, are marked in units to denote strength of the individual medication and are matched to the strength of that medication only.

Questions about use of specific syringes or medications should be addressed to a medical professional or pharmacist only.

Be careful! Getting an answer about dosage over the internet can be dangerous, as there is nothing to ensure you're getting a correct answer. Using medications where you’re unsure about the dosage can lead to overdose or death.
