[Gnumed-devel] Measurement units (base value)

The measurements widget provides a field for the measurement and another for 
the units.

Is there any reason why not to default the "base" unit into the units field?

MIght a praxis desire to use a unit of measurement that is different from what 
is set as a "base" as their praxis default? I am not sure how this "base" will 
work if it can be changed. Maybe (despite that the RR is currently set to units 


the praxis could set it to


and create new measurements, which (if recorded in mmHg) would remain mmHg but 
then anyone in the praxis could alter the "base" to Pa and this would define a 
base for interconversaion of existing values?

Does GNUmed contain any conversion factors?
