Part Descriptions

LP34982-6   Human metapneumovirus
Human metapneumovirus (hMPV) is a Paramyxoviridae family virus that causes upper and lower respiratory tract infections in the very young, elderly and those with compromised immune systems. hMPV can vary in its size, shape and staining properties, and shares similar structure with avian pneumovirus (aMPV) and human respiratory syncytial virus (hRSV). Typically, molecular testing methods, like reverse transcriptase PCR (RT-PCR), are used to detect hMPV. hMPV is thought to be responsible for about 5% to 10% of pediatric hospitalizations of those suffering from acute respiratory tract infection.

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.

LP6429-7   Organism specific culture
An organism-specific culture contains nutrients that optimize the growth of a specific organism and inhibitors that prevent the growth of competing organisms. Source: Regenstrief LOINC
