Hi Kudozers!

This is from a Spanish hospital for UK English please.

Under the subtitle "constantes", following max/min blood pressure, heart rate and temperature I have the term

"12/11/2018 - 13:57:00 - Identificación Activa - 1,00 ud"

the 1,00 ud is below the results for BP (XXX mmHg), heart rate (XX bpm) and temp (XX °C). i.e. it's the 'result' for the "Identificación Activa".
I guess it's simply "active identification", but of what? I don't like simply translating without knowing what it means or represents.

Any pointers would be appreciated, thanks.

We now require an active patient identification, made by three separate individuals (PACU nurse, circulating nurse, and anesthesiologist).

I'm still not 100% convinced, but I don't think I'm going to get any feedback from the client either... so I think this is our best reading.
