Based On VitalSign

Value:  Value
BodySite must be from BloodPressureBodySiteVS
optional A location or structure in the body, including tissues, regions, cavities, and spaces, for example, right elbow, or left ventricle of the heart.

ObservationQualifier must be from BloodPressureQualifierVS
0 or more A description of the conditions or context of an observation, for example, under sedation, fasting or post-exercise. Body position and body site are also qualifiers, but handled separately. A qualifier cannot modify the measurement type; for example, a fasting blood sugar is still a blood sugar.

Members required Members represent the elements of a group of a related but independent observations. Examples are the measurements that compose a complete blood count (CBC), or the elements of a pathology report. Each member is an independent observation, but the grouping reflects a composite lab order, shared specimen, or a single report author. Typically the Category and Reason are not given for individual findings that are part of the panel, but rather given at the level of the panel itself.
FocalSubject optional For use when FHIR's subject does not allow the desired type of Subject in the Finding.Subject field.
FocalSubjectReference optional For use when FHIR's subject does not allow the desired type of Subject in the Finding.Subject field.
Evidence 0 or more A symptom, observation, or other item, for example, a radiology report, that serves as evidence for the current assessment.
RelatedEncounter optional If content was generated during a patient encounter, related encounter is the encounter where the information was gained.
Author optional The person or organization who created the entry and is responsible for (and may certify) the content.
Informant optional The person or entity that provided the information in the entry, as distinct from who created the entry, e.g. the subject (patient), medical professional, family member, device or software program.

OxygenSaturation [Entry]

Oxygen saturation in Arterial blood by Pulse oximetry. 59408-5

Based On VitalSign

Value:  Quantity Units is % (%)
A quantity with units, whose value may be bounded from above or below, as defined in FHIR
ObservationCode is 59408-5
required A code that represents what the finding concerns, for example, the subject's height, blood pressure, disease status, wound dimensions, diabetes risk, etc. Although named ObservationCode, in different contexts the same attribute might be more naturally referred to as a property, observable, or test code. In assertions (observations without an explicit question), the observation code is defaulted to a value representing 'assertion'.
BodySite must be from OxygenSaturationBodySiteVS
optional A location or structure in the body, including tissues, regions, cavities, and spaces, for example, right elbow, or left ventricle of the heart.
Subject required The person or thing that this entry relates to, usually the Person of Record. However, not all entries have health information specifically about the patient, but in different contexts, could refer to a fetus, family member (living or dead), device, location, organization, finding, condition, or intervention.
Category includes vital-signs
1 or more A class or division of people or things having particular shared characteristics
ValueAbsentReason optional Provides a reason why the value of the observation is missing, if it is expected (some observations are not expected to have a value).
ClinicallyRelevantTime optional The time or time period that the finding addresses. The clinically relevant time is not necessarily when the information is gathered or when a test is carried out, but for example, when a specimen was collected, or the time period referred to by the question. Use a TimePeriod for a measurement or specimen collection continued over a significant period of time (e.g. 24 hour Urine Sodium).
FindingStatus required Indicates whether the finding is preliminary, amended, final, etc..
ChangeFlag optional Indicator of significant change (delta) from the last or previous measurement.
Details optional An text note containing additional details, explanation, description, comment, or summarization. Details can discuss, support, explain changes to, or dispute information.
Interpretation optional A clinical interpretation of a finding.
ObservationQualifier 0 or more A description of the conditions or context of an observation, for example, under sedation, fasting or post-exercise. Body position and body site are also qualifiers, but handled separately. A qualifier cannot modify the measurement type; for example, a fasting blood sugar is still a blood sugar.
Specimen optional Sample for analysis
