In every flow sheet, you are able to select critical parameters for each monitoring selection (such as temperature or heart rate). To enter critical parameters, follow the steps below:

On the iPad:

In "Editing mode" tap parameter name you want to set the critical values for (ex. temperature)

In the boxes next to "Critical values" enter the low and high-end critical values you desire and tap "Done"

When a value is entered that is outside the range you entered, an alert will appear on the iPad screen, as well as appearing on the desktop version (see below)

If you enter critical parameters for each monitoring section and save this as a template, your critical parameters will be saved for further use. After you create this template, you may also change the critical parameters for an individual patient without those changes being saved to the template.
