Writing out gravida, para - workinghard

Posted: May 24, 2010

Doctor says:  G2, P2-0-0-2. How would it be written out? Do I have the format correct, or would it be: G2, P 2-0-0-2?

gravida, para - oldmt

[ In Reply To ..]
Would be G2, P2-0-0-2 or G2, P2/0/0/2. either way is correct from my years of experience.

Thank you! nm - workinghard

  hello, i like to automate or "macro-ize" every single step of the transcription process. every second counts!  however, i cannot choose a macro program (free or for a charge) that works the most efficiently for MTs and does not interfere with any platforms which often have macros written into them.  the easier it is to program and use, the better.  for instance, trying to write a series of macros in MS Word has the potential of botching up many platform macros--and could ...
