    I stumbled upon a LOINC code that has the property “Rden”

    https://r.details.loinc.org/LOINC/5811-5.html?sections=Comprehensive

    However I can’t find any documentation of this property in the User Manual, or Ontologies.

    Is there any place I can find a more complete reference than the User manual?

    Hello Sergio,

    All of the properties were modeled after measurements from the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) color book series. I believe the Silver Book was the primary source originally.  RDen or Relative Density is defined in a Google search of ‘Relative Density IUPAC Book’ as “Ratio of density to a reference density, usually the density of water at 4 degrees C; in the older literature this is called specific gravity. The electronic search returned from the IUPAC Gold Book. The IUPAC has their own organizational website.

    I also went into RELMA and searched Property:RDen, found all related terms and chose one to see comprehensive detail. The definition in RELMA has additional information for your benefit. I presume you already have read within the LOINC User’s Guide, Table 8 – Example LOINC properties, Chapter 4 and Appendix E.

    Thank you for the question; I hope this helps!

    Thank you, yes this was quite helpful!

    Now I know in the future where to search for this information. And yes I’ve been using the Table 8: Example LOINC Properties as my main reference which has worked 99% of the time to answer my questions and further search. I apparently just failed to see the footnote referring to the IUPAC silver book.

    Best regards

    Sergio
