Ardens has created a wide range of clinical templates to assist with data entry for a variety of clinical areas.


The available Biochemistry Templates include:


  • B12 deficiency template - Vitamin B12 deficiency is a common disorder.  This template allows for the recording of history and examination details, investigations, management and follow up of the condition, including onward referral.
  • Hypercalcaemia template - Hypercalcaemia can be classified as mild, moderate or severe.   This template helps to capture history, lifestyle and examination details.  It can be used to record investigations that may be required, advice given, follow up diary dates, and any referrals that are required.
  • Hyperkalaemia template - this template provides a short framework upon which to record hyperkalaemia consultations in primary care.
  • Hypernatremia template - this template focuses on hypernatremia in adults and can be used to record history, examinations, investigations and management of the condition.
  • Hypokalaemia template - the condition’s causes and stages are defined on this template, which can then be used to record history, examination findings, investigations and management.
  • Hyponatremia template  - this template can be used to record full details when a patient presents with this condition.  
  • Vitamin D deficiency - this template allows for the inputting of history, examination findings, investigations and management, as well as giving information about the condition, including risk factors.  This template is not applicable to children, pregnant women or adults with renal failure.


All the above templates contain a Quick Entry page, to speed up data entry by condensing key information into one page.
