It is used to capture quantitative values for a variety of elements. If only limits are given, the arithmetic mean will be the average. If only a single definite value for a given element is given, it would be captured in this field

This value set is used in the following places:

Data Fields

Name Description Type Constraints
Concept_NameName of the concept in the FHIR structurestringrequired : 1
Computer_Ready_NameA Computer-ready name (e.g. a token) that identifies the structure - suitable for code generation. Note that this name (and other names relevant for code generation, including element & slice names, codes etc) may collide with reserved words in the relevant target language, and code generators will need to handle this.string-
TypeThe type the structure describes.string-
Dollar_RefThe "$ref" string value contains a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) which identifies the location of the JSON value being referenced.string-
DescriptionA free text natural language description of the structure and its usestring-
ItemsThe value of the keyword should be an object or an array of objects. If the keyword value is an object, then for the data array to be valid each item of the array should be valid according to the schema in this value.string-

Concept NameComputer Ready NameTypeDollar RefDescriptionItems
SubstanceAmount_ReferenceRangeid#/definitions/stringUnique id for the element within a resource (for internal references). This may be any string value that does not contain spaces.
SubstanceAmount_ReferenceRangeextensionarrayMay be used to represent additional information that is not part of the basic definition of the element. To make the use of extensions safe and manageable
SubstanceAmount_ReferenceRangemodifierExtensionarrayMay be used to represent additional information that is not part of the basic definition of the element and that modifies the understanding of the element in which it is contained and/or the understanding of the containing element's descendants. Usually modifier elements provide negation or qualification. To make the use of extensions safe and manageable
