Term Description

The Vital signs section includes blood pressure, body temperature, heart rate, and respiratory rate. It may also include other clinical findings, such as height, weight, body mass index, head circumference, and pulse oximetry. In particular, notable vital signs or physical findings such as the most recent, maximum and/or minimum, baseline, or relevant trends may be included.

Change Reason
Because it is too difficult to maintain and because the distinction between documents and sections is not clear-cut nor necessary in most cases, the DOCUMENT_SECTION field has been deemed to have little value. The field has been set to null in the December 2017 release in preparation for removal in the December 2018 release. These changes were approved by the Clinical LOINC Committee.
