Oxygen Flow Rate Calculations

Add Oxygen Flow Rates calculations for all anaesthetised patients to calculate at specified rates e.g. 300 ml/kg/minute, or 10 ml/kg/minute, or a calculation we can put in to assess minute ventilation (Tidal volume x respiration rate) so we can alter and adjust more easily would benefit patient safety. Some are good at calculating in their head but other staff would appreciate a pre calculated value in order to ensure optimal oxygen metabolic requirements are met in relation to the type of breathing circuit used and stage of procedure (starting flow rate vs maintenance flow rate etc.).
