Units of Measurement
quantities and units UCUM Units in RTM IHTSDO - Observable and Investigation Model Project ISO/IEC / telebiometrics (IDMP, ISO 11240)
from draft ISO/CD 11240
UCUM The Unified Code for Units of Measure Codes for base units and derived units Covers most units in practical use freely available published as XML file lightweight maintenance process unitsofmeasure.org
UCUM added units for RTM: –Wood units for vascular resistance: [wood'U] := mm[Hg].min/L –B[10.nV] ( for using dB[10.nV] ) future development: –add syntax rules for logarithmic units –rules for arbitrary units –road to ISO?
Lab: Reference ranges for blood tests
Unit alone is not enough! relative volume: 1 L / 2 L = 0.5 L/L volume fraction: 1 L / 3 L = L/L same unit and dimension! -> fully specified property required! 1 L
RTM -> Paul Schluter
harmonized RTM table

IHTSDO Observable and Investigation Model Project Example: substance rate of renal excretion of pregnanediol in micromoles per day (observable entity) –PROPERTY TYPE substance rate –CHARACTERIZES renal excretion of pregnanediol –PROCESS OUTPUT pregnanediol –UNITS micromoles per day –DIRECT SITE urine specimen
IHTSDO Observable and Investigation Model Project Example: mass concentration ratio of silver to creatinine in 24 hour urine (observable entity) –PROPERTY TYPE mass concentration ratio –CHARACTERIZES renal excretion of silver –PROCESS AGENT renal parenchyma –PROCESS DURATION 24 hours –PROCESS OUTPUT silver –RELATIVE TO creatinine –DIRECT SITE 24 hour urine specimen
IHTSDO Observable and Investigation Model Project PROPERTY TYPE INHERES IN –INHERENT LOCATION –INHERENT INGREDIENT CHARACTERIZES –PROCESS AGENT –PROCESS DURATION –PROCESS OUTPUT TOWARDS RELATIVE TO, REL-TO PART-OF
IHTSDO Observable and Investigation Model Project PRECONDITION SCALE UNITS TECHNIQUE DIRECT SITE

IHTSDO Observable and Investigation Model Project Property Type –This attribute is used to specify the type of inherent quality or process that is to be observed. –Its values are abstract types of quality (length, odor, concentration) or abstract types of process features (rate, speed), and do not include qualities that are located (length of arm, odor of urine), or given a value (elevated concentration).
IHTSDO Observable and Investigation Model Project Note: In a coming release of SNOMED CT, Measurement property will become a subtype of a new general concept Property type (qualifier value)
IHTSDO Observable and Investigation Model Project Working on Rules for translating LOINC names and cNPU codes into the SNOMED observables model. Viable approach for parts of nomenclature? Relation to RTM?
ISO/IEC Quantities and units Successor of ISO 31, IEC definitions, names, letter symbols and their use, relations, and signs and symbols used with them ISO TC 12 - Quantities and Units / IEC TC 25ISO TC 12 - Quantities and Units "style guide" for scientific publications
ISO/IEC ISO TC 12 - Quantities and Units ISO 80003: Physiological quantities and their units –ISO PHYSICS –ISO CHEMISTRY –IEC BIOLOGY –IEC CULTUROLOGY –IEC PSYCHOLOGY
