(HL7) Pulling OBX5 as multi delimited message. With ~ as delimiter (ORU_R01||2.4) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to know how to change the default HL7 generated schema to allow for a repeating field on this OBX5 to be ~ (I know this is set in the encoding on the MSH "^~\&" are the respective encoding chars.


    It gives a data parsing error when I try to put in a value like this in the OBX 5 segment.


    OBX|1|FT|CPT4^||Test Reason : ~Some Value: 120/086 mmHG~Some Other Value: 058 BPM : 058 BPM~   148 ms  092 ms~    QT Int : 432 ms  98 degrees~: 424 ms~~HGeart Attack~~
