CodeDisplayDefinition
AAbnormalThe result or observation value is outside the reference range or expected norm (as defined for the respective test procedure). \[Note: Typically applies to non-numeric results.\]
AACritical abnormalThe result or observation value is outside a reference range or expected norm at a level at which immediate action should be considered for patient safety (as defined for the respective test procedure). \[Note: Typically applies to non-numeric results. Analogous to critical/panic limits for numeric results.\]
HHCritical highThe result for a quantitative observation is above a reference level at which immediate action should be considered for patient safety (as defined for the respective test procedure). Synonym: Above upper panic limits.
LLCritical lowThe result for a quantitative observation is below a reference level at which immediate action should be considered for patient safety (as defined for the respective test procedure). Synonym: Below lower panic limits.
HHighThe result for a quantitative observation is above the upper limit of the reference range (as defined for the respective test procedure). Synonym: Above high normal
HUSignificantly highA test result that is significantly higher than the reference (normal) or therapeutic interval, but has not reached the critically high value and might need special attention, as defined by the laboratory or the clinician.
LLowThe result for a quantitative observation is below the lower limit of the reference range (as defined for the respective test procedure). Synonym: Below low normal
LUSignificantly lowA test result that is significantly lower than the reference (normal) or therapeutic interval, but has not reached the critically low value and might need special attention, as defined by the laboratory or the clinician.

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
Source 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
