What does the "CC" stand for when dispensing medicine?
The other answers are correct: Cubic Centimeters =mL.However, medicine is trying to shy away from cc and use mL instead. The cc often gets confused with other abbreviations. I know the hospital system that I work for highly discourages the use of cc.
Philo is correct....CC's are equal to mililiters (mL)
Cubic Centimeters, which is equal to milliliters.
one cc of water=one mL of water=one gram of water all at sea level and room temperature
