Associated Observations

This panel contains all of the "Special circumstances" LOINC codes that are used to report the specific context during which a particular measurement was taken, where that context may affect the measurement value. Circumstances that can affect measurement of certain variables include when the patient is asleep, in pain, crying, febrile, or during a period of apnea. This panel is attached to the generic LOINC code for each measurement so that the circumstance under which the measurement was taken can be reported along with the primary result.
