Currently, when entering in a number into a cell for a medication on a flowsheet, Smart Flow will assume you mean ml. However, some clinics choose to use the 'total mg' option on medications for the 'Show on Flowsheet' prompt. Now, the units that correspond to your 'Show on Flowsheet' prompt will be added into the Medical Record PDF after the numbers you enter into the cell on flowsheets. So if you chose to show 'Total mg' for a medication, and you enter '5' into a cell, Smart Flow will add 'mg' after the 5 into the Medical Record.
It will also calculate the total volume that you use, based on the mg that you enter into the flowsheet and the concentration of the drug. This total ml will then appear on your billing PDF, or be sent directly to your EMR (if you are using an integrated EMR), so the appropriate amount of the drug can be billed for.
For example: You are giving a patient 5 mg of 10 mg/ml of a drug. You have opted to show 'total mg' on your 'Show on Flowsheet' prompt, and you enter '5' into the cell. Smart Flow will show that you have given 5 mg of the drug, and will also show that you gave a total volume of 0.5ml on your billing pdf.
