I need to write out my labs in the hospital. What is the best way to do it without writing them out one by one? There is a way that the MD's do them, but when I look at them, I am not able to interpret which ones are Na+ or K+. Thanks.
For the most part the MD's all write the same values in the same spots but I have seen it where they've made up their own or put values in different areas.
CBC is >----< in the > is wbc, above the line is hbg, below the line is hct, and in the < is plt
CMP is ----l----l----< with the first box above the line is Na, the second one is cl, and the third is BUN. On the bottom of the line the first one is K, the second is CO2, and the third is creatinine. In the < is glucose.
For the others I have made a fill in the blank style sheet that if you want I could post a copy that you can look at or use.
