Patient discussion about ICD

Q. I have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and an ICD. Is it possible to get breast implants with an ICD? I have no further symptoms: I workout and run 6 days a week, in good shape and only 27 years old.

A. Some medical equipment can damage your ICD If you are visiting your doctor , tell him or her that you have an ICD BEFORE they do any testing or treatment.i'm pretty sure they'll find a creative way to do the implant.any way- before doing any procedure- ask the cardiologist that handles you about it.

Partnerships among state health departments, clinical laboratories, providers, CDC, and other diagnostics systems are needed to promote widespread use of uniform coding standards (LOINC and SNOMED) and Health Level 7 for messaging.
(a) The authors searched through the web site for the Italian name and/or units and/or specimen of the test that must translate, and the tool returned the set of the concepts of other local terminologies, stored in the database, that were similar to the request and the corresponding LOINC code.
Can LOINC codes be transmitted simultaneously with the result?
Since this first release, the Regenstrief Institute and the LOINC Committee have delivered 17 releases, increased the size of the database fivefold, added codes for many clinical subjects beyond the laboratory, added short names for laboratory tests, developed and enhanced a free browsing program, the Regenstrief LOINC Mapping Assistant (RELMATm) (8), and watched adoption of the LOINC coding system grow.
The system should capture industry standards for coding, billing, document generation, and interface formats, such as CDC, HL7 CDA1/2, XML, ASC X12, LOINC, SNOMED-CT, ICD-9, or ICD-10, as appropriate for each data type.
The HIE also provides LOINC (Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes) coding for labs, and focused on the top 25 labs ordered in the ED to do LOINC coding across 14 hospitals.

Wherever possible, appropriate existing standards (including LOINC and HL 7 code lists) were used because CDISC is committed to working with other professional groups to share information and minimize duplication of effort.
> Duplicate work There may be areas in the LIS that duplicate areas in the EHR, requiring input and maintenance in both systems.These might include test compendiums, specimen requirements, ICD-9/ICD-10 codes, LOINC, CPT codes, etc.
"A lot of labs are sending data with HL7 2.3.1 and they have to upgrade their message format to 2.5.1 and start sending LOINC [Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes] and SNOMED [Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine] codes," he adds.
