OK, I'm doing a crappy idea of describing this, but someone more knowledgeable will know what I'm talking about. Anyone know where I can find an example of one so I know how they're used. I googled "fishscale" and "fish scale" with "labs" and came up with nothing. Thanks--

- 0May 7, '07 by Daytonitei thought that might be what the op was referring to. yours is a much better example of what i found on this webpage:
http://www.phoenix.tc-ieee.org/000_b...006-09-10.html - position coded electrolytes. halfway down the page the physician shorthand for the chem 7 (probably the fishscale you are referring to) and the cbc are shown as best possible with the software program.
basically, the structure and contents of the grid is this (hard to create the look on this software program):
sodium |chloride|** bun**/----------------------------glucosepotassium|bicarb|creatinine\

All those years I have been looking at those things(40), never heard them called fish scales before. Interesting....

You should pick one you like and use it consistently for your own use. If there is a standard at your place of employment, you should (obviously) conform.
