Hi, you made this edit some time ago, claiming that French physicians measure blood pressure in MPa. I've reverted it: in fact France uses mmHg like I think all the world does (though they tend to divide by ten, i.e., use cmHg, when speaking the value). I'm curious to know where you got that idea. Some confusion with meteorology, perhaps? (It is true that atmospheric pressure in France, nowadays, is normally reported in millibars=hPa.) --Gro-Tsen (talk) 08:24, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

I didn't cite a source? Yikes! It seems I got it from Sep 27 discussion with Eric P., who is working on linked health data. I guess I intended to chase down a published source but neglected to do so.
