Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national

standards bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried

out through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO

collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted (see www.iso.org/directives).

IEEE Standards documents are developed within the IEEE Societies and the Standards Coordinating

Committees of the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Standards Board. The IEEE develops its

standards through a consensus development process, approved by the American National Standards

Institute, which brings together volunteers representing varied viewpoints and interests to achieve the

final product. Volunteers are not necessarily members of the Institute and serve without

compensation. While the IEEE administers the process and establishes rules to promote fairness in the

consensus development process, the IEEE does not independently evaluate, test, or verify the accuracy of

any of the information contained in its standards.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of any

patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or on the

ISO list of patent declarations received (see www.iso.org/patents).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

For an explanation of the voluntary nature of standards, the meaning of ISO specific terms and

expressions related to conformity assessment, as well as information about ISO's adherence to the World

Trade Organization (WTO) principles in the Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT), see www.iso.org/

iso/foreword.html.

ISO/IEEE 11073-10101 was prepared by the IEEE 11073 Standards Committee of the IEEE

Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (as IEEE Std 11073-10101-2019) and drafted in

accordance with its editorial rules. It was adopted, under the “fast-track procedure” defined in the Partner

Standards Development Organization cooperation agreement between ISO and IEEE, by Technical

Committee ISO/TC 215, Health informatics.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO/IEEE 11073-10101:2004), which has been

technically revised. It also incorporates the Amendment ISO/IEEE 11073-10101:2004/Amd 1:2017.

Abstract: Within the context of the ISO/IEEE 11073 family of standards for point-of-care (POC)

and personal health devices (PHD) medical device communication (MDC), this standard provides

the nomenclature that supports both the domain information model and service model

components of the standards family, as well as the semantic content exchanged with medical

devices. The nomenclature is specialized for patient vital signs information representation and

medical device informatics, with major areas including concepts for electrocardiograph (ECG),

haemodynamics, respiration, blood gas, urine, fluid-related metrics, and neurology, as well as

specialized units of measurement, general device events, alarms, and body sites. The standard

defines both the architecture and major components of the nomenclature, along with extensive

definitions for each conceptual area.

Important Notices and Disclaimers Concerning IEEE Standards Documents

IEEE documents are made available for use subject to important notices and legal disclaimers. These

notices and disclaimers, or a reference to this page, appear in all standards and may be found under the

heading “Important Notices and Disclaimers Concerning IEEE Standards Documents.” They can also be

obtained on request from IEEE or viewed at http://standards.ieee.org/ipr/disclaimers.html.

Notice and Disclaimer of Liability Concerning the Use of IEEE Standards
Documents

IEEE Standards documents (standards, recommended practices, and guides), both full-use and trial-use, are

developed within IEEE Societies and the Standards Coordinating Committees of the IEEE Standards

Association (“IEEE SA”) Standards Board. IEEE (“the Institute”) develops its standards through a

consensus development process, approved by the American National Standards Institute (“ANSI”), which

brings together volunteers representing varied viewpoints and interests to achieve the final product. IEEE

Standards are documents developed through scientific, academic, and industry-based technical working

groups. Volunteers in IEEE working groups are not necessarily members of the Institute and participate

without compensation from IEEE. While IEEE administers the process and establishes rules to promote

fairness in the consensus development process, IEEE does not independently evaluate, test, or verify the

accuracy of any of the information or the soundness of any judgments contained in its standards.

IEEE Standards do not guarantee or ensure safety, security, health, or environmental protection, or ensure

against interference with or from other devices or networks. Implementers and users of IEEE Standards

documents are responsible for determining and complying with all appropriate safety, security,

environmental, health, and interference protection practices and all applicable laws and regulations.

IEEE does not warrant or represent the accuracy or content of the material contained in its standards, and

expressly disclaims all warranties (express, implied and statutory) not included in this or any other

document relating to the standard, including, but not limited to, the warranties of: merchantability; fitness

for a particular purpose; non-infringement; and quality, accuracy, effectiveness, currency, or completeness

of material. In addition, IEEE disclaims any and all conditions relating to: results; and workmanlike effort.

IEEE standards documents are supplied “AS IS” and “WITH ALL FAULTS.”

Use of an IEEE standard is wholly voluntary. The existence of an IEEE standard does not imply that there

are no other ways to produce, test, measure, purchase, market, or provide other goods and services related

to the scope of the IEEE standard. Furthermore, the viewpoint expressed at the time a standard is approved

and issued is subject to change brought about through developments in the state of the art and comments

received from users of the standard.

In publishing and making its standards available, IEEE is not suggesting or rendering professional or other

services for, or on behalf of, any person or entity nor is IEEE undertaking to perform any duty owed by any

other person or entity to another. Any person utilizing any IEEE Standards document, should rely upon his

or her own independent judgment in the exercise of reasonable care in any given circumstances or, as

appropriate, seek the advice of a competent professional in determining the appropriateness of a given

IEEE standard.
IN NO EVENT SHALL IEEE BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL,
EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO:
PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES; LOSS OF USE, DATA, OR PROFITS;
OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION) HOWEVER CAUSED AND ON ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY,
WHETHER IN CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE OR
OTHERWISE) ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE PUBLICATION, USE OF, OR RELIANCE
UPON ANY STANDARD, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE AND
REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DAMAGE WAS FORESEEABLE.

Translations

The IEEE consensus development process involves the review of documents in English only. In the event

that an IEEE standard is translated, only the English version published by IEEE should be considered the

approved IEEE standard.
Official statements

A statement, written or oral, that is not processed in accordance with the IEEE SA Standards Board

Operations Manual shall not be considered or inferred to be the official position of IEEE or any of its

committees and shall not be considered to be, or be relied upon as, a formal position of IEEE. At lectures,

symposia, seminars, or educational courses, an individual presenting information on IEEE standards shall

make it clear that his or her views should be considered the personal views of that individual rather than the

formal position of IEEE.
Comments on standards

Comments for revision of IEEE Standards documents are welcome from any interested party, regardless of

membership affiliation with IEEE. However, IEEE does not provide consulting information or advice

pertaining to IEEE Standards documents. Suggestions for changes in documents should be in the form of a

proposed change of text, together with appropriate supporting comments. Since IEEE standards represent a

consensus of concerned interests, it is important that any responses to comments and questions also receive

the concurrence of a balance of interests. For this reason, IEEE and the members of its societies and

Standards Coordinating Committees are not able to provide an instant response to comments or questions

except in those cases where the matter has previously been addressed. For the same reason, IEEE does not

respond to interpretation requests. Any person who would like to participate in revisions to an IEEE

standard is welcome to join the relevant IEEE working group.
Comments on standards should be submitted to the following address:

Laws and regulations

Users of IEEE Standards documents should consult all applicable laws and regulations. Compliance with

the provisions of any IEEE Standards document does not imply compliance to any applicable regulatory

requirements. Implementers of the standard are responsible for observing or referring to the applicable

regulatory requirements. IEEE does not, by the publication of its standards, intend to urge action that is not

in compliance with applicable laws, and these documents may not be construed as doing so.

Copyrights

IEEE draft and approved standards are copyrighted by IEEE under U.S. and international copyright laws.

They are made available by IEEE and are adopted for a wide variety of both public and private uses. These

include both use, by reference, in laws and regulations, and use in private self-regulation, standardization,

and the promotion of engineering practices and methods. By making these documents available for use and

adoption by public authorities and private users, IEEE does not waive any rights in copyright to the

documents.

Updating of IEEE Standards documents

Users of IEEE Standards documents should be aware that these documents may be superseded at any time

by the issuance of new editions or may be amended from time to time through the issuance of amendments,

corrigenda, or errata. A current IEEE document at any point in time consists of the current edition of the

document together with any amendments, corrigenda, or errata then in effect.

Every IEEE standard is subjected to review at least every ten years. When a document is more than ten

years old and has not undergone a revision process, it is reasonable to conclude that its contents, although

still of some value, do not wholly reflect the present state of the art. Users are cautioned to check to

determine that they have the latest edition of any IEEE standard.

In order to determine whether a given document is the current edition and whether it has been amended

through the issuance of amendments, corrigenda, or errata, visit the IEEE Xplore at

http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/ or contact IEEE at the address listed previously. For more information about the

IEEE SA or IEEE’s standards development process, visit the IEEE SA Website at http://standards.ieee.org.

Errata

Errata, if any, for all IEEE standards can be accessed on the IEEE SA Website at the following URL:

http://standards.ieee.org/findstds/errata/index.html. Users are encouraged to check this URL for errata

periodically.
Patents

Attention is called to the possibility that implementation of this standard may require use of subject matter

covered by patent rights. By publication of this standard, no position is taken by the IEEE with respect to

the existence or validity of any patent rights in connection therewith. If a patent holder or patent applicant

has filed a statement of assurance via an Accepted Letter of Assurance, then the statement is listed on the

IEEE SA Website at http://standards.ieee.org/about/sasb/patcom/patents.html. Letters of Assurance may

indicate whether the Submitter is willing or unwilling to grant licenses under patent rights without

compensation or under reasonable rates, with reasonable terms and conditions that are demonstrably free of

any unfair discrimination to applicants desiring to obtain such licenses.

Essential Patent Claims may exist for which a Letter of Assurance has not been received. The IEEE is not

responsible for identifying Essential Patent Claims for which a license may be required, for conducting

inquiries into the legal validity or scope of Patents Claims, or determining whether any licensing terms or

conditions provided in connection with submission of a Letter of Assurance, if any, or in any licensing

agreements are reasonable or non-discriminatory. Users of this standard are expressly advised that

determination of the validity of any patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, is entirely

their own responsibility. Further information may be obtained from the IEEE Standards Association.

Introduction

This introduction is not part of IEEE Std 11073-10101-2019, Health informatics—Point-of-Care Medical Device

Communication—Nomenclature.

ISO/IEEE 11073 standards enable communication between medical devices and external computer

systems. They provide automatic and detailed electronic data capture of patient vital signs information and

device operational data. The primary goals are to

⎯ Provide real-time plug-and-play interoperability for patient-connected medical devices.

⎯ Facilitate the efficient exchange of vital signs and medical device data, acquired at the point-of-

care, in all health care environments.

“Real-time” means that data from multiple devices can be retrieved, time correlated, and displayed or

processed in fractions of a second. “Plug-and-play” means that all the clinician has to do is make the

connection — the systems automatically detect, configure, and communicate without any other human

interaction.

“Efficient exchange of medical device data” means that information that is captured at the point-of-care

(e.g., patient vital signs data) can be archived, retrieved, and processed by many different types of

applications without extensive software and equipment support, and without needless loss of information.

The standards focus on acute care devices, such as patient monitors, ventilators, infusion pumps, ECG

devices, etc, and personal health devices and systems. They comprise a family of standards that can be

layered together to provide connectivity optimized for the specific devices being interfaced.

IEEE Std 11073-10101 was originally published in 2004 in conjunction with the International Organization

for Standardization (ISO). In 2015, IEEE published an amendment that expanded the nomenclature and

definitions covered in the standard to reflect the continued innovation in medical device and system design.

This 2019 revision integrates the amendment into the original text and further updates and expands the

nomenclature and definitions.
