The value set to instantiate this attribute should be drawn from a terminologically robust code system that consists of or contains concepts to support describing the reason why a dose is considered to be subpotent. This value set is provided as a suggestive example.


This value set is not used here; it may be used elsewhere (e.g. specifications and/or implementations that use this content)

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

Level A few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. In this scheme, some codes are under other codes, and imply that the code they are under also applies
System The source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
Code The code (used as the code in the resource instance)
Display The display (used in the display element of a Coding). If there is no display, implementers should not simply display the code, but map the concept into their application
Definition An explanation of the meaning of the concept
Comments Additional notes about how to use the code
