AnonymousB.P. 140/90 mm Hg or mmHg or Hgmm or Hg mm - which one is correct?BP 140/90 mmHg - This is mostly used in medical documents.
BP 140/90 mm Hg - It is also acceptable, but not in use.
I am not a doctor, but I believe mm Hg represents the number of millimetres on a mercuy barometer (where Hg is the Periodic Table symbol for mercury)
So I would say mm Hg is very clear
I googled this for you and found the reference below
Unfortunately, in the graph they use mm Hg, but in the text they use mmHg
So I'm afraid I do not know the answer!
Best wishes for your studies however, Dave
