ConceptBody segment length discrepancy
DescriptionMeasurement of the difference in length between paired body segments.
UseUse to record the measurement of the difference in length between paired body segments. 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 discrepancy between two paired body segments, identified by the 'Paired body segment name' data element. This measurement may be recorded and tracked over time, for example tracking child growth parameters, or used to provide insight into the shape and proportions of an individual's body for purposes of clinical, anthropometric or ergonomic assessment. It may also be used 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 between two identified points 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. The elements 'Measurement method', 'Measurement origin', 'Structured origin', 'Measurement endpoint' and 'Structured endpoint' is reduntant if already recorded in the OBSERVATION.body_segment_length when recording the actual length of the body segments.
MisuseNot to be used to record the length of a body segment - use OBSERVATION.body_segment_length for this purpose.
PurposeTo record the measurement of the difference in length between paired body segments.
