When To Use Roman Numerals

by Jennifer on July 18, 2011

Roman numerals are used for:

cancer stage
chronic obstructive pulmonary disease stage
Clark level
class (use Roman or Arabic depending on system referenced)
clotting factor
cranial nerve
Crowe classification
EKG lead
Garden I femoral neck fracture
Glasgow coma scale
level (use Roman or Arabic depending on system referenced)
NYHA classifications of heart failure
phase (use Roman or Arabic depending on system referenced)
psychiatric diagnosis
Radiation Therapy Oncology phase III
Salter epiphyseal fracture
Schatzke tibial plateau fracture
skin type
sleep stage
stress fracture

You can find subdivisions of stages in the AAMT Book of Style (pages 354-356) for cancer classifications.

Where did you find that the Glasgow Coma Scale should be in Roman numerals? I haven’t find anything like that.

Great list.
