ARCHETYPE Body segment area (openEHR-EHR-OBSERVATION.body_segment_area.v1)

ARCHETYPE IDopenEHR-EHR-OBSERVATION.body_segment_area.v1
ConceptBody segment area
DescriptionCalculation of the cross-sectional area of an identified part of the body, usually identified in relation to points of surface anatomy.
UseUse to record the calculation of the cross-sectional area of an identified part of the body, usually identified in relation to points of surcace anatomy, including an indication of the relative location of the measurement point, if required. For example: to record the estimation of a mid upper arm area at the mid point between the acromion process of the scapula and the olecranon process of the ulna. The body segment area may be recorded and tracked over time, for example to provide insight into the shape and proportions of an individual's body for purposes of clinical, anthropometric or ergonomic assessment. Common parameters that are measured as circumferences have been added to the DV_CODED_TEXT data type in the 'Body segment name' data element. As further parameters are identified, these can be added to this list over time.
MisuseNot to be used to record a body surface area measurement - use the OBSERVATION.body_surface_area for this purpose. Not to be used to record common body segment measurements that have been modelled as separate archetypes, including, but not limited to: - for Head circumference - use OBSERVATION.head_circumference; - for Hip circumference - use OBSERVATION.hip_circumference; - for Waist circumference - use OBSERVATION.waist_circumference; and - for Chest circumference - use OBSERVATION.chest_circumference. Not to be used to record the length, height or width measured between two identified points on the body - use OBSERVATION.body_segment_length for this purpose. Not to be used to record the circumference of a body segment - use OBSERVATION.body_segment_circumference for this purpose. Not to be used to record the area of an internal body organ or a lesion.
PurposeTo record the calculation of the cross-sectional area of an identified part of the body, usually identified in relation to points of surface anatomy.
