ARCHETYPE Anatomical Location (openEHR-EHR-CLUSTER.anatomical_location.v1)

ARCHETYPE IDopenEHR-EHR-CLUSTER.anatomical_location.v1
ConceptAnatomical Location
DescriptionIdentification of a single anatomical structure, or area, of the human body.
UseUse within slots in ENTRY and CLUSTER archetypes to describe anatomical location in a consistent manner. Examples of use: - Use within CLUSTER.specimen to record Anatomical Location details within the 'Collection Site' slot. - Use within EVALUATION.adverse_reaction to record Anatomical Location details within the 'Additional Reaction Detail' slot.
MisuseNot for specifiying unilateral/bilateral occurrence of a health condition or diagnosis - this is an evaluative statement.
PurposeTo record details about a single anatomical location, including the ability to record an approximate location relative to identified anatomical landmarks.
ReferencesUse cases:

- 5LICS, midclavicular line

- L forearm, 2cm anterior to the cubital fossa

- Right iliac fossa

- 5 cm below L tibial tuberosity

- 2 cm medial to R nipple

- 4 cm below R costal margin in midclavicular line

- R femur

- midline nose

- medial aspect of R great toe nail.
