Primary local value sets used in this Implementation Guide

Name Definition
BodyLocationVS

Codes that describe normal and pathologic anatomic systems, regions, cavities, and spaces.

ClockFaceDirectionVS

The relative direction of an object described using the analogy of a 12-hour clock to describe angles and directions. One imagines a clock face lying either upright or flat in front of oneself, and identifies the twelve hour markings with the directions in which they point.

DetectedNotDetectedVS

Value set consisting of the answers Detected (Present) and NotDetected (Absent). The terms detected and not detected are preferred because they reflect outcomes of experimental observation, while present and absent suggest ground truth. This value set reconciles or combines LOINC answer lists LL956-4

Codes describing integrity of mucous membranes.

PeriwoundConditionVS

Provides values for the periwound condition, the state of the skin surrounding a wound.

Overall assessment of the wound.

WoundBedAppearanceVS

A set of codes that describe how the wound bed looks.

WoundBedEdgeColorVS

A set of codes that describes the color of the wound bed.

WoundDepthQualitativeVS

WoundExudateAppearanceVS

A set of codes that describe what the exudate looks like.

WoundExudateColorVS

A set of codes describing the color of the exudate.

WoundExudateOdorVS

A set of codes that describe how the exudate smells.

WoundGradationVS

A set of codes that describe the stage of the wound or the degree of a burn.

WoundTrendVS

A set of codes that describe the way in which something is developing or changing.

WoundTypeEtiologyVS

A set of codes that describe the causitive agent of a wound.

WoundTypeVS

Codes that describe a kind of wound.
