Contains all medication given during stay. Additional data like name and unit of measurement is found in d_references, where medication.DrugID is associated to d_references.ReferenceGlobalID. Metavision does not differ between continuous or single doses in rangesignals, so a single dose is set to 60 second admission time. Each change of a continuous application will end the current entry and create a new one.
|Offset||Integer||Time in seconds after admission|
|OffsetDrugEnd||Integer||If drug was given continuously refers to end of application. Field is set to 60 seconds on bolus application.|
|IsSingleDose||Integer||Set to 1 when given as bolus.|
|Amount||Float||Full amount given regardless of time||Unity of measurement found in d_references|
|AmountPerMinute||Float||Dosage per minute||Unity of measurement found in d_references|
Predefined Fields (RoDataServer)
The medication data is generally considered as being widely valid. Nevertheless there are some limitations to be stated:
Offsets and Times
The offset is the documented time of drug application. As the observed intensive care unity do not use perfusor telemetry all values are entered manually. Following inaccuracies of of time give may be generally expected:
- +/- 5 minutes in anaesthesia settings
- +/- 5 minutes in resuscitation settings
- +/- 15 minutes in intensive care settings
The difference is explained in different default view range in medication input forms.
Different Reference for similar drugs
Due to liberal laws concerning drug names in Austria not all drugs are correctly labeled by their INN name and sometimes multiple proprietary products for the same substance are used. The SICDB Team used an algorithm to identify and unify the medication data. There may be special cases where this procedure failed, for example at compound antihypertensive drugs.
