< Low off scale Below absolute low-off instrument scale. This is statement depending on the instrument, logically does not imply LL or L (e.g., if the instrument is inadequate). If an off-scale value is also low or critically low one must also report L and LL respectively
> High off scale Above absolute high-off instrument scale. This is statement depending on the instrument, logically does not imply LL or L (e.g., if the instrument is inadequate). If an off-scale value is also high or critically high one must also report H and HH respectively
A Abnormal Abnormal (for nominal observations, all service types)
AA Abnormal alert Abnormal alert (for nominal observations and all service types)
B Better Better (of severity or nominal observations)
D Decreased Significant change down (quantitative observations, does not imply B or W)
H High Above high normal (for quantitative observations)
HH High alert Above upper alert threshold (for quantitative observations)
HX Above high threshold The numeric observation/test result is interpreted as being above the high threshold value for a particular protocol within which the result is being reported Example: An ALT (SGOT) result above a protocol-defined threshold value of 2.5 times the upper limit of normal based on the subject's sex and age
I Intermediate Intermediate
L Low Below low normal (for quantitative observations)
LL Low alert Below lower alert threshold (for quantitative observations)
LX Below low threshold The numeric observation/test result is interpreted as being below the low threshold value for a particular protocol within which the result is being reported Example: A Total White Blood Cell Count falling below a protocol-defined threshold value of 3000/mm^3
MS Moderately susceptible Moderately susceptible
N Normal Normal (for all service types)
R Resistant Resistant
S Susceptible Susceptible
U Increased Significant change up (quantitative observations, does not imply B or W)
VS Very susceptible Very susceptible
W Worse Worse (of severity or nominal observations)
