DEC-Vol1DEC-Vol1-001Each actor implementing this Patient Care Device (PCD) profile shall be grouped with the IT Infrastructure Consistent Time profile Time Client Actor for the purpose of consistent time-stamping of messages and data
DEC-Vol2DEC-Vol2-001The Communicate PCD Data [PCD-01] transaction references the following chapters from the HL7 Version 2.6 standard: Chapter 7 Observation Reporting
DEC-Vol2DEC-Vol2-002The Communicate PCD Data [PCD-01] transaction references the IEEE 11073-10201 Domain Information Model standard
DEC-Vol2DEC-Vol2-003The Communicate PCD Data [PCD-01] transaction references the IEEE 11073-10101a Nomenclature standard
DEC-Vol2DEC-Vol2-004The static definition for the PCD-01 Communicate PCD Data message is defined in the unnamed table in this section of the doument
DEC-Vol2DEC-Vol2-005The PCD-01 message structure differs from the basic HL7 version 2.6 by allowing for the appearance of PRT segments, a segment new in HL7 version 2.7, in certain locations.
DEC-Vol2DEC-Vol2-006The period for periodic reporting shall be several times a minute for high acuity reports and maximum interval of once every 24 hours, with a typical interval of 1 minute.
DEC-Vol2DEC-Vol2-007Upon receipt of a PCD-01 message the DOC actor validates the message and shall respond with an acccept acknowledgement message as defined in Appendix G.11 Acknowledgement Modes.
DEC-Vol2DEC-Vol2-008For PCD-01 messages MSH-9 Message Type shall contain ORU^R01^ORU_R01.
DEC-Vol2DEC-Vol2-009Device to Enterprise Communications PCD-01 Communicate PCD Data message (also used for observations in response to a PCD-02 PCD Data Query) shall contain in MSH-21 Message Profile Identifier the value
DEC-Vol2DEC-Vol2-010For PCD-01 messages the ORC segment use is X, i.e. not sent.
DEC-Vol2DEC-Vol2-011Pulse Oximetry Integration (POI) device observations shall include an observation of oxygen saturation of blood gas as a percentage numeric data type. Given the variety of available device designs (dedicated function SPO2 monitor or modular component to a physiologic monitor), the variety of sensor capabilities, and that the observation identification can include the sense point body part, i.e. left/right arm, etc. there is no single observation definition for all devices and all use cases. Any communicated SPO2 observation shall appear in RTMMS. A non-exclusive example is 150456^MDC_PULS_OXIM_SAT_O2^MDC.
PCD-Vol2PCD-Vol2-001OBX-3 shall be expressed as an HL7 Coded Element With Exceptions (CWE) data type
PCD-Vol2PCD-Vol2-002OBX-4 shall be expressed as the containment level of a particular item expressed in OBX-3
PCD-Vol2PCD-Vol2-003Ordinal numbers in OBX-4 are not normative for a given parameter and may vary between implementations. They shall be unique within a given containment, however, numbers may change between messages.
PCD-Vol2PCD-Vol2-004Source for nomenclature codes is IEEE 11073-10101 current version. Additional codes not yet standardized are contained in the RTMMS
PCD-Vol2PCD-Vol2-005Periodic versus aperiodic data shall be distinguished by the IEEE 11073 Metric Access code in OBX-17
PCD-Vol2PCD-Vol2-006The value in MSH-2 Encoding Characters shall be ^~\&
PCD-Vol2PCD-Vol2-007MSH-3 Sending Application shall uniquely identify the software application implementing the actor sending the message
PCD-Vol2PCD-Vol2-008If MSH-4 Sending Facility is populated, the first component shall identify the organizational entity responsible for sending the message, the second component if present shall identify the Universal ID of the organizational entity responsible for the sender of the message, the third component if present shall identify the Universal ID Type
