Document intake and output
Use the Intake/Output tab in the Flowsheets activity to document all intake and output, including the
following:



Basic I/O (measured and unmeasured)
Output from drains, tubes, and wounds
Intake from IVs, tubes, and other lines
Document I/O before transfer or discharge and throughout your shift as usual.
To document I/O at the end of your shift, insert a column before the shift's end.
Otherwise, the I/O will be included in the next shift's totals.

Document intake from IVs
The system can automatically calculate the volume of intake from each IV based on the documented rate and
the time that has passed. When you document intake, you need to verify that each calculated volume is
correct.
For each IV listed on the Intake/Output flowsheet, do the following:
1. In the volume row, click . The system calculates the volume.
2. Verify that the volume is correct.

If it's incorrect, click Use Volume to reset the calculator to zero for future calculations, and then
enter the correct volume manually.
3. Click Use Volume. The calculated volume appears in the Volume row.
The system calculates volume based on your documentation. If you or another clinician
records an incorrect rate or doesn't mark an infusion as paused when it's not infusing,
the system will calculate an incorrect volume.
