8.16 Resource DeviceMetric - Content

Health Care Devices Work Group Maturity Level : 1   Trial Use Security Category : Anonymous Compartments : Device Not linked to any defined compartments

Describes a measurement, calculation or setting capability of a medical device.

The DeviceMetric resource describes mandatory static properties that characterize a direct or derived, quantitative or qualitative biosignal measurement, setting, or calculation produced by a medical device. The DeviceMetric resource can also be used to describe the non-static but highly relevant properties to the metric such as metric status, metric last calibration time and type, measurement mode, color, reference link to the parent DeviceComponent to where it belongs, and any capabilities that the metric offers (for example: setting the metric label).

Note:

For the initial scope, this DeviceMetric resource is only applicable to describe a single metric node in the containment tree that is produced by the context scanner in any medical device that implements or derives from the ISO/IEEE 11073 standard.

There are two related resources

  • Device - The physical device that this DeviceMetric belongs to.
  • DeviceComponent - The DeviceComponent that this DeviceMetric is part of. This can be a DeviceComponent of any kind like a VirtualMedicalDevice, a MedicalDeviceSystem, or a Channel.

This resource is referenced by Media EvidenceVariable and Observation .

This resource does not implement any patterns.

DeviceMetric ( DomainResource ) Describes the unique identification of this metric that has been Unique instance identifiers assigned to a device by the device or gateway software. software, manufacturers, other organizations or owners. For example: handle ID. It should be noted that in order to make the identifier unique, the system element of the identifier should be set to the unique identifier of the device ID identifier : Identifier [1..1] [0..*] Describes the type of the metric. For example: Heart Rate, PEEP Setting, etc type : CodeableConcept [1..1] « Describes the metric type. (Strength=Preferred) Device Metric and Component T... DeviceMetricAndComponentTypes ? » Describes the unit that an observed value determined for this metric will have. For example: Percent, Seconds, etc unit : CodeableConcept [0..1] « Describes the unit of the metric. (Strength=Preferred) Device Metric and Component T... DeviceMetricAndComponentTypes ? » Describes the link to the Device that this DeviceMetric belongs to and that contains administrative device information such as manufacturer, serial number, etc source : Reference [0..1] « Device » Describes the link to the DeviceComponent Device that this DeviceMetric belongs to and that provide information about the location of this DeviceMetric in the containment structure of the parent Device. An example would be a DeviceComponent Device that represents a Channel. This reference can be used by a client application to distinguish DeviceMetrics that have the same type, but should be interpreted based on their containment location parent : Reference [0..1] DeviceComponent « Device » Indicates current operational state of the device. For example: On, Off, Standby, etc operationalStatus : code [0..1] « Describes the operational status of the DeviceMetric. (Strength=Required) DeviceMetricOperationalStatus ! » Describes the color representation for the metric. This is often used to aid clinicians to track and identify parameter types by color. In practice, consider a Patient Monitor that has ECG/HR and Pleth for example; the parameters are displayed in different characteristic colors, such as HR-blue, BP-green, and PR and SpO2- magenta color : code [0..1] « Describes the typical color of representation. (Strength=Required) DeviceMetricColor ! » Indicates the category of the observation generation process. A DeviceMetric can be for example a setting, measurement, or calculation category : code [1..1] « Describes the category of the metric. (Strength=Required) DeviceMetricCategory ! » Describes the measurement repetition time. This is not necessarily the same as the update period. The measurement repetition time can range from milliseconds up to hours. An example for a measurement repetition time in the range of milliseconds is the sampling rate of an ECG. An example for a measurement repetition time in the range of hours is a NIBP that is triggered automatically every hour. The update period may be different than the measurement repetition time, if the device does not update the published observed value with the same frequency as it was measured measurementPeriod : Timing [0..1] Calibration Describes the type of the calibration method type : code [0..1] « Describes the type of a metric calibration. (Strength=Required) DeviceMetricCalibrationType ! » Describes the state of the calibration state : code [0..1] « Describes the state of a metric calibration. (Strength=Required) DeviceMetricCalibrationState ! » Describes the time last calibration has been performed time : instant [0..1] Describes the calibrations that have been performed or that are required to be performed calibration [0..*]
