Purpose and Scope

Usage 1 :

Usage Type :    
Usage Description :    
The refset identifies products for the treatment of constipation that are administered via the rectum as an enema or as a micro-enema. It does not include other rectal forms such as suppositories. Created to support the identification of patients being treated for chronic constipation with clinically significant multi morbidity. These subsets are created using the XML format dm+d data and so within these subsets a small number of concepts are inactive (status 2 or 10) in the SNOMED CT International Release. The origin of these inactive concepts is the native XML dm+d and they are now inactive in the new International Release due to natural movement and updating of the International Release content. Work is underway to update the dm+d concepts to the new International release identifiers; at this point this mismatch will be resolved. If using the dm+d in SNOMED CT format the International Release relationships will enable migration to the replacement concept.
