I continue developing the Monitor function. This time a video from “r twotorials”:

**“how to access different records within a data frame by using logical tests in r”**, gave me the idea to remove the zero values from a data set.

When somebody give you a table like the one I show, if the laboratory did not analyze a sample for any reason, I write a cero. So cero is not a reference value.

It will be diferent if we have for example: 0,001 or 0,00005, in this case we are managing very low concentrations, but we dont say just 0.

Anyway we can do a similar approach if we prefer “NA” indeed “0”.

So, I prepare a new video with how the function performs right now:

Hope you like.
