Definition:This includes data about the patient’s vital signs. 2.1.2.14 VITAL SIGN This module contains current and relevant historical vital signs for the patient. Vital Signs are a subset of Results (see Section 2.1.2.15), but are reported in this section to follow clinical conventions. The differentiation between Vital Signs and Results varies by clinical context. Common examples of vital signs include temperature, height, weight, blood pressure, etc. However, some clinical contexts may alter these common vitals, for example in neonatology “height” may be replaced by “crown-to-rump” measurement.
