Blood Oximetry, Body Temperature, and Exhaled Breath Temperature RRS feed

  • Question

  • It looks like Blood Oximetry, Body Temperature, and Exhaled Breath Temperature are not in the standard schema.  Are there any plans to extend the schema or should we be creating our own fields for this information?

  • Vital signs' title is codable-value. Our recommendation is to use "vital-statistics" vocabulary. You can find it at Dev tool.
    There is a vocabulary/code for "Temperature".

    About Peak flow type, we will consider it in future enhancement. But for now, your options are either to use "note" field or extension.

  • We recommend to look at "Blood oxygen saturation" and "Vital signs" data types to start with.

  • Great thanks Takashi, I'd missed the Blood Oxygen Saturation.  Regarding vitals signs, how does this work?  Is there a bounded list of titles or is this freeform?  If we were to add a body temperature measurement would we be reliant on others to use the same title in order to compare values?  Sorry if I have missed the point.

    We are also looking to measure lung function and whilst the peak flow data type gives us FEV1, FEV6, and PEF, we would like to record FEV1/FVC and FEV1 % predicted.  Are there any plans to include these data types?

    Any help would be useful, regards,

    Dave
