1  AIRTRNSairborne transmissionCommunication of an agent from a living subject or environmental source to a living subject through indirect contact via oral or nasal inhalation.

1  BDYFLDTRNSbody fluid contact transmissionCommunication of an agent from one living subject to another living subject through direct contact with any body fluid.
1  BLDTRNSblood borne transmissionCommunication of an agent to a living subject through direct contact with blood or blood products whether the contact with blood is part of a therapeutic procedure or not.
1  DERMTRNStransdermal transmissionCommunication of an agent from a living subject or environmental source to a living subject via agent migration through intact skin.
1  ENVTRNSenvironmental exposure transmissionCommunication of an agent from an environmental surface or source to a living subject by direct contact.
1  FECTRNSfecal-oral transmissionCommunication of an agent from a living subject or environmental source to a living subject through oral contact with material contaminated by person or animal fecal material.
1  FOMTRNSfomite transmissionCommunication of an agent from an non-living material to a living subject through direct contact.

1  PARTRNSparenteral transmissionCommunication of an agent from a living subject or environmental source to a living subject where the acquisition of the agent is not via the alimentary canal.
1  PLACTRNStransplacental transmissionCommunication of an agent from a living subject to the progeny of that living subject via agent migration across the maternal-fetal placental membranes while in utero.

1  TRNSFTRNStransfusion transmissionCommunication of an agent from one living subject to another living subject through direct contact with blood or blood products where the contact with blood is part of a therapeutic procedure.
1  VECTRNSvector-borne transmissionCommunication of an agent from a living subject acting as a required intermediary in the agent transmission process to a recipient living subject via direct contact.
1  WATTRNSwater-borne transmissionCommunication of an agent from a contaminated water source to a living subject whether the water is ingested as a food or not. The route of entry of the water may be through any bodily orifice.

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

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
