It's used by physicians, internists, surgeons, ophthalmologists, researchers, anesthesiologists, chiropractors, nurses, hospice workers, and physical and psychological therapists, to measure, express, and communicate the magnitude of forces, lengths, areas, speeds, capacities, and volumes, and the

duration of periods of time.
