    Dear Pam,

    Thank you very much! By the way, the situation is quite funny. Some people counting time like this:
    1. 4AM=morning, before sunrise.
    2. 8AM=morning, breakfast time.
    3. 12AM=noon, lunch time.
    4. 4PM=afternoon, before sunset.
    5. 8PM=evening, dinner time.
    6. 12PM=midnight.

    I am thinking whether 12 AM or 12 PM to indicate midnight and noon is a bit confusing? Will LOINC consider to apply ISO8601 24-hour-clock standard in either the LOINC common name or related name, to clear off uncertainty?

    Thank you again.

    Best Regards,
