You can remove Flow Sheet Items from a Flow Sheet within a patient chart. This is useful for special cases in which the final Flow Sheet design is only applicable to a single patient.

However, if you find that you frequently need to remove Flow Sheet Items from an existing Flow Sheet, you should create a new Flow Sheet that serves your needs using the Docuplate Manager.

To Graph items from a Flow Sheet, place a check in Graph column box that corresponds with the item you wish to view in a Graph. A Graph containing the selected items will automatically be created in the Graph area of the Flow Sheets section of the patient chart.

Hovering over any part of a particular line on the graph will bring the entire line forward and fade the others into the background. This allows you to easily view the graph for a particular vital sign, without having to un-select the other graphed readings.

To display the values of a single point on the graph, hover the mouse cursor over the point you wish to view. The item, date, time, and value will be displayed.
