New development - Flo supports the alcohol pathway in South Tyne and Wear

South of Tyne and Wear are implementing Flo to support their patients who are currently on their alcohol pathway to support early intervention and prevent exacerbations of ascites.

Flo will support patients who are at risk of Ascites. This condition can result in patients retaining fluids, which in turn can effect their breathing.

Flo provides the opportunity for the clinical team to be able to monitor the indicators of such fluid retention by monitoring the patient's weight and girth daily. Any gains can be an early indication of an exacerbation. Flo allows the team to titrate the diuretics medication if necessary.
