TRUNK-5698 Adding Slider for capturing vitals.

Current behavior:- You have text fields to enter vitals. Expected behavior:- You have a slider and text field both to enter vitals just like AC. Check screenshots for more details.

I mean to add slider in the ref app for recording vitals just like AC.

What advantage does that give compared to just typing in the value?

It makes it easy for user. It also increases the level of UI.

Personally I find that while sliders can be visually appealing and useful for situations where precision is not required (volume level, position in a film, etc.), they’re a pain to use to enter precise data. Hence, the Nielsen Norman Group, which focuses on UX, offers the same advice in this article. A better alternative might just be to ensure that these inputs are generated using type="number". I’d also recommend getting rid of the sliders in the AC.
