ConceptBody segment - circumference
DescriptionMeasurement of the distance around an identified part of the body.
UseUse to record the measurement of the circumference of an identified part of the body including an indication of the relative location of the measurement start/endpoint, if required. For example: to record that a measurement around the calf was taken 10cm distal to the tibial tuberosity. Body segment measurements that are ubiquitous and, most commonly, used as part of growth charting in childhood have been modelled as unique and discrete archetypes. Rather than create an archetype for every single possible body segment measurement, the intent of this archetype is to use a common recording pattern to capture any, or all, other possible measurements of measurements around a part of the body, identified by the 'Body segment' data element. This measurement 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, to record the measurement of abnormal clinical findings or observations in order to track the progress of a condition or disease. Common parameters that are measured as circumferences have been added to the DV_CODED_TEXT data type in the 'Body segment' data element. As further parameters are identified, these can be added to this list over time. It is possible to record the difference between measurements of the same body segment measured from each side of the body, for example the difference in calf cirumference between right and left, using the 'Circumference' data element associated with the 'Difference between sides' event.
MisuseNot to be used to record common body segment measurements that have been modelled as separate archetypes: - for Body height/length - use OBSERVATION.height; - 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 circumference of an internal body organ or a lesion. 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 area of a body segment - use OBSERVATION.body_segment_area for this purpose.
PurposeTo record the measurement of the circumference of an identified part of the body.
