Detailed Description

SUBJECT_ID, HADM_ID, ICUSTAY_ID

Identifiers which specify the patient: SUBJECT_ID is unique to a patient, HADM_ID is unique to a patient hospital stay and ICUSTAY_ID is unique to a patient ICU stay.

CHARTTIME

CHARTTIME is the time of an output event.

ITEMID

Identifier for a single measurement type in the database. Each row associated with one ITEMID (e.g. 212) corresponds to an instantiation of the same measurement (e.g. heart rate).

Metavision ITEMID values are all above 220000. A subset of commonly used medications in CareVue data have ITEMID values are between 30000-39999. The remaining input/output ITEMID values are between 40000-49999.

VALUE, VALUEUOM

VALUE and VALUEUOM list the amount of a substance at the CHARTTIME (when the exact start time is unknown, but usually up to an hour before).

STORETIME

STORETIME records the time at which an observation was manually input or manually validated by a member of the clinical staff.

CGID

CGID is the identifier for the caregiver who validated the given measurement.

STOPPED, NEWBOTTLE, ISERROR

STOPPED indicates if the order was disconnected at the given CHARTTIME. NEWBOTTLE indicates that a new bag of solution was hung at the given CHARTTIME. ISERROR is a Metavision checkbox where a care giver can specify that an observation is an error. No other details are provided.
