ARCHETYPE Height/Length (openEHR-EHR-OBSERVATION.height.v2)

ARCHETYPE IDopenEHR-EHR-OBSERVATION.height.v2
ConceptHeight/Length
DescriptionHeight, or body length, is measured from crown of head to sole of foot.
UseTo be used for recording the actual height or body length of an individual at any point in time. A statement identifying the physical incompleteness of the body can be recorded in the 'Confounding factors' protocol element, if required. This is the usual archetype to be used for a typical measurement of height or body length, independent of the clinical setting. Can also be used for recording an approximation of height or body length measurement in a clinical scenario where it is not possible to measure an accurate height or length - for example, measuring an uncooperative child. This is not modelled explicitly in the archetype as the openEHR Reference model allows approximations for any Quantity data type by setting the attribute Magnitude_status to the value '~'. At implementation, for example, an application user interface could allow clinicians to select an appropriately labelled check box adjacent to the Height data field to indicate that the recorded height is an approximation, rather than actual. In general, length measurements are recommended for children under 2 years of age and individuals who cannot stand; height measurements for all others. Ideally, height is measured standing on both feet with weight distributed evenly, heels together and both buttocks and heels in contact with a vertical back board; body length is measured in a fully extended, supine position with the pelvis flat, legs extended and feet flexed. Use to record growth or loss of height. This can currently be modelled by constraining the 'any event' to an interval event within a template, with the associated mathematical function of increase or decrease, as appropriate.
MisuseNot to be used to record the adjusted height or body length eg a calculation of the estimated full height of a person with limb contractures, based on other body part measurements and/or an algorithm - use OBSERVATION.height-adjusted. Not to be used to record growth velocity. Not to be used to record the length of an object or specific body part.
PurposeTo record the length of the body from crown of head to sole of foot of an individual - both actual and approximate, and either in a standing or recumbent position.
