Part Descriptions

LP14242-9   Parainfluenza virus 2
Human parainfluenza viruses (HPIVs) are a group of four distinct serotypes of single-stranded RNA viruses belonging to the paramyxovirus family. They are the second most common cause of lower respiratory tract infection in younger children. Repeated infection throughout the life of the host is not uncommon. Symptoms of later breakouts include upper respiratory tract illness as in a cold and sore throat. The incubation period of all four serotypes is 1 to 7 days. Parainfluenza viruses can be detected via cell culture, immunofluorescent microscopy, and PCR. Though no vaccines currently exist, research into vaccines for HPIV-1, -2, and -3 is underway. Parainfluenza viruses last only a few hours in the environment and are inactivated by soap and water. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.

LP264599-4   Cornea/Conjunctiva
The "Cornea/Conjunctiva" System in LOINC encompasses both the cornea and conjunctiva, which are contiguous structures in front of the eye. This System is used for LOINC terms that represent tests run on either corneal or conjunctival specimens (e.g., swabs) and does not imply that both the corneal and conjunctiva were sampled in any given instance.
