18store remarks0;17BOOLEAN0:NO
This field controls if comments that are associated with an accession or specimen are stored with the results. The default is NO. There is a similar companion field at the test level which controls comments associated with tests results.
20new data1;E1,200FREE TEXTThis is a string of executable code which is used whenever a new string of data starts to come from the automated instrument.
25restart2;E1,200FREE TEXTThis is a string of executable code which restarts everything for this particular instrument if there has been a power failure, or if the routines have become totally lost. If error conditions have occurred, it can restart itself.
26handshake response.5;E1,200FREE TEXTIf the instrument requires a handshake response, this field contains the executable MUMPS code to set the response into the variable OUT. eg. S OUT=$C(6) (OUT contains the ASCII character 6 "ACK")
27ack trigger value0;13NUMERIC This field contains the sequence used to acknowledge an auto instrument. Not all instruments utilize this field.
28ack response value0;14NUMERIC If this instrument setup instructions indicate a standard ack value is required by the instrument, enter the $C(X) for the acknowledgment. Not all instruments make use of this field. Where X= the ascii number of the ACK character.
29direct device.75;1POINTER3.5This field is used when bypassing the LSI. It is the name of the device that is used to communicate with a direct connect instrument.
30chem tests3;0MULTIPLE62.41This is a multiple field that keeps track of tests being done in the instrument It allows one to be exclusive of tests which the instrument passes, as well as inclusive of the tests the machine passes which had not been ordered from the test panel for the patient. It means, for example, if the order was glucose, sodium, and a number of other tests, but not the entire ASTRA panel, but the laboratory chooses to run on the ASTRA, all the tests can be included in the verified data. To exclude large amounts of data, for example, the Hematrak passes distribution data about the slide that it has examined, information which may or may not be appropriate for the laboratory to pass on to the ward.
31load chem tests0;5SET OF CODEST:TC ARRAY
This field is used by the LASET routine to determine what to do with the chem test sub-file. T or blank moves the data into the TC array. U moves the data into the ^UTILITY("LA",$J, global. N don't move at all. The value will be returned in LALCT.
40alarm terminal4;0MULTIPLE62.42This is a multiple field. It contains the names/numbers of devices which will report the status of the interface. This field is inactive for V 4.16
60micro card type7;0MULTIPLE62.43This entire sub-field is at present devoted to supporting BI-DIRECTIONAL interfacing of Microbiology instrumentation. If you are not attempting to interface one these types of instruments, you may ignore this entire sub-field. If you are attempting to interface such an instrument, there are examples available for various instruments. Check FORUM for a current listing of instruments which are interfacable.
