By creating a Treatment Template, you can save many details of the treatment protocol for future use. Please read below what information can be stored in the template and which should be re-entered for each patient specifically.


Monitoring, Activity, Procedure

For the parameters in the Monitoring, Activity, and Procedure sections, you can always save the processing frequency - Continue Every (hour), Critical Values, Instructions, and highlighting color.
