On the CDM all this week I had suggested that we should put ventilator information in the procedure b/c I was looking at procedure codes that I get from our system; however, based on the vocabulary, vent start and stop easily go into the device table. I had missed this, @Christian_Reich! I’m now trying to do the same w/ dialysis and cvvh (Continuous Veno-Venous Hemofiltration). What code do you think is the best one I should use if I want to capture the start and end time of these events? All the codes that sound right are in the procedure domain.
Technically, vent, dialysis, and cvvh are things being performed on the patient, but I think that debate might take too long to get into and I need to figure out what’s the best way to get this information into OMOP that makes the most sense so we can share what we’ve done
