Project Description:

This new chart shows cumulative fluid balance totals in visually compelling bar format.

The detailed numerical data on standard cumulative charts are not easy to grasp quickly. This additional chart is designed for display on top of the usual charts. It provides ‘at a glance’ information, alerting staff to possible over or under-hydration. The extra chart takes seconds to complete after calculating 24 hr totals.
