The main things you’ll use here are:

– Blood gases: remember to specify room air in the comments on the order.

– Inpatient Respiratory Treatment Menu: for breathing treatments.

– Respiratory free text: this is how you provide patient with a loaner CPAP, “Please provide patient with loaner CPAP, thanks.” Also the way you order ambulation pulse ox check, “Please walk patient and check oxygen saturation, thanks.”

How to order Nebulizer at discharge:
