One of the best things about Smart Flow is its versatility! One example of this is our Anesthetic Sheet.
This is a great tool that can be used for more than just recording anesthetic vitals. With our customizable anesthetic templates, you can customize & save templates based on your specific needs. This will allow you to monitor things like blood transfusion, antivenom administration, critical patients & even patients on a ventilator.
- First, you will want to have the patient on your whiteboard
- From your iPad tap "Menu" then choose "Anesthetic Sheet"
- You will be taken to your "Preoperative Page". Smart Flow will already have pulled the most recent TPR from the patient's flow sheet if one is present. You will then have the option of using this one or choosing to enter a new TPR.
- Under the "Procedure" section, enter the name of the procedure you are performing, ie. blood transfusion.
- You can use the "Comments" and "Critical Notes" section to record things like blood type or transfusion number
- Next customize your time intervals to what best suits your needs for monitoring this patient: 1m, 5m, 10m, 15m or 30m
- Once all information has been entered, tap "Save"
- This will take you to the Anesthetic sheet where you are now able to choose and save a variety of monitoring parameters. We recommend you save a Template with the name of the procedure for future use.
- You will then tap "Start Anesthetic"
- Select your monitoring procedure from the "Surgical time":
- If monitoring for a blood transfusion you will want to enter the blood product here (so that you are able to adjust the flow rate as needed):
You can display a table view of the anesthetic sheet, whereby numerical values are displayed instead of the symbol / graph version of the anesthetic sheet.
A few things to note re this feature:
- To enter the numbers you need to tap on the first cell, & then enter the values.
- You will automatically be prompted to enter the next value, as per the flowsheets; without having to manually select each parameter individually.
- When finalizing the anesthetic sheet, it will finalize in whichever mode you are currently using, effectively like taking a screenshot.
Here is a video where Dr. Ivan clearly demonstrates this functionality:
