Anesthesia record - charting meds given over time
In my anesthesia record solution, I plan to have the user enter "observations", which are timed data entry records that contain medication name, amt, and time given.
I want to display these in a graphic format, across the top of an anesthesia record. For example:
The attached screen shot will show what I am trying to imitate. A typical anesthesia record has a grid of about 3 - 4 hours in 5 minute increments, with major gridlines at 15 minutes. I tried to do this with portals, but they only go vertically. I then tried setting up a bunch of portals strung horizontally with the subsequent record in each one, but this doesn't seem very elegant.

The horizontal portal method may not seem very elegant, but it's the approach that I would consider first for this issue.
