Health informatics-Point-of-care medical device communication Part 10102: Nomenclature-Annotated ECG
|Publication Date:||5 December 2012|
This standard extends the base ISO/IEEE 11073-10101:20041 to provide support for ECG annotation terminology. Major subject areas addressed by the nomenclature include ECG beat annotations, wave component annotations, rhythm annotations, and noise annotations. It also defines additional "global" and "per-lead" numeric observation identifiers, ECG lead systems, and additional ECG lead identifiers. The nomenclature extensions may be used in conjunction with other IEEE 11073 standard components (e.g., ISO/IEEE 11073-10201:2004 [B19]2) or independently with other standards.
This standard provides a unified and comprehensive terminology for ECG annotation semantics, making it suitable for medical device data exchange that requires inclusion of ECG annotations. This standard consolidates numerous other standard and nonstandard terminologies that are in current use, resulting in the harmonization of how ECG annotation information is identified, enabling interoperability, and providing information exchange at the application level.
Currently, many terminologies and protocols, both standard and
vendor specific, are used to manage and exchange ECG annotation
information. As a result, protocol converters and translators are
required to integrate systems and applications, typically with some
degree of semantic loss and noninteroperability.
