I'm sorry, Since I already have suprascript and subscript up on my tool bar, my instructions were what to do for O(subscript)2 so all you have to do is type O2 (normal script) and it changes automatically. I don't like having to highlight the 2 and go up there and click the subscript button every time. I would rather type O2 and let Word change it for me. I try to get Word to do as much for me as possible. I do this for cm squared, cm cubed, H2(subscript)0, etc.

BOUGIES, neoplex, Porges (POR), filiform, (a) smaller sizes olive-tipped, (b) larger sizes plain, sizes 1 to 20 Ch, two only of each size. (c) Follower to fit, two only. Use these for dilating strictures, for which they have many advantages over metal bougies[md]except that they are much less durable. You can control their passage through the anterior urethra more easily, they follow the curve of the posterior urethra, and you will less easily cause false passages, even with small sizes. Cheatle's forceps can crush plastic bougies when they are hot, so tie them into bundles, and handle them only with tapes. Lift them out of the sterilizer and put them into cold boiled water. They will then be the right consistency for use.
