Conversion Calculators

Post by Admin on Mon Mar 31, 2014 12:35 pm

Here is how to convert PTH from picomoles per L (pmol/L) the standard NHS SI metric units into the NON SI (USA) units, so us Brits can compare our UK blood results with our American cousins.

Please note that the conversion between the two units for Intact Parathyroid hormone (PTH) and serum calcium is not exact:

To Convert PTH units

To convert from standard NHS SI units (pmol/L) to USA units (pg/ml)

Multiply the NHS units by 9.43

To convert from USA units (pg/ml) to NHS SI units (pmol/L)

Divide the USA units by 9.43

To convert Serum (Blood) Calcium results

To convert from standard NHS SI units (mmol/L) to USA units (mg/dL)
Multiply the NHS units by 4

To convert from USA units (mg/dL) to NHS SI units (mmol/L)

Divide the USA units by 4
