Vital Signs Reading Types

The Vital Signs Reading (VSR) Types are the core of the Vital Signs section of the patient chart. Using VSR types, you can input, modify, and track a patient’s vital sign readings.

Each VSR type has pre-set upper and lower limits ("smart" values). These smart values assist in assuring accurate date entry by reducing the amount of erroneous data that can be entered into a given type.

NOTE: These values should be sufficient for most practices. If you find that you regularly need to enter a value outside these ranges, please contact SOAPware technical support.
