area of an actual PTPART. Examples of H-PTAREA words are
'ANGLE', 'BORDER', 'REGION', 'SURFACE', 'SIDE', 'BASE'.
|H-PT V _____.|
Ex. Patient is cooperative.
H-PT Verb _____ _____ H-PT
Ex. Patient is a thin, attractive woman.

measurements (as opposed to physiological functions,
like PULSE), and different from words for laboratory tests
(which also have numerical results). These words are
generally found in the Physical Examination section of
Ex. No liver.
This is a special subset of the H-PTPART subclass which may
occur with negation on a zeroed verb 'PALPATED': 'No liver
[palpated]'. Only this special subset of H-PTPART
can be negated, because the negation is considered to belong to
the zeroed verb 'PALPATE'.

| _____ of H-PTPART H-SHOW H-INDIC.|
Ex. Palpation of abdomen revealed tenderness.
_____ of H-PTPART BE H-NORMAL.
Ex. Examination of foot is normal.
Ex. Kernig's sign positive.

| _____ H-SHOW [H-NEG] H-INDIC|
Ex. CXR shows no acute infiltrates.
Ex. MRI shows a grade 1 spinal listhesis.
Ex. Xray of hands and feet.
This subclass contains medical test words designating
noninvasive procedures performed on the patient and not
on a patient specimen. The patient must be present to undergo

more specific tests, that appear in association with a more
specific test (H-TXVAR).
| _____ BE/H-SHOW Quantity/H-TXRES/H-INDIC.|
Ex. Acetone is normal.
The H-TXVAR words name the "variable" of laboratory tests.
The tests are performed on patient specimens, not on the patient's
persona. The H-TXVAR words are distinct from H-ORG words,
which refer to organisms cultured or grown out in lab tests. They
are also distinct from both H-TXPROC words in which the testing
procedures are performed on the patient's body (Ex. 'XRAY', 'SCAN',
'GI SERIES') and from H-TXCLIN words ("hands-on' procedures
found in the "Examination" section of the medical document).
The H-TXVAR words either have a quantity expression associated
with them, a normalcy (H-NORMAL) or a result descriptor (H-TXRES)
or a word from the H-INDIC subclass.

This subclass contains medical action words designating
therapy (such as 'BEDREST', 'IMMUNIZATION', 'HYDRATION'), of a
"complementary" nature; that is, they are distinguished from the
words in the H-TTGEN subclass which designate administrative and
general medical management actions (ex. 'ADMIT', 'DISCHARGE'), the
H-TTSURG subclass which designates surgical interventions, and
the H-TTMED subclass which designates medications. Some of the
H-TTCOMP words are classifiers (ex. 'TREATMENT', 'THERAPY')
of the H-TTCOMP words and as such have the attribute GENERIC.

Ex. Fever developed.
H-TTCOMP/H-TTMED/H-TTGEN BE _____.
Ex. Treatment was begun.
_____ of the H-INDIC/H-DIAG.
Ex. The start of the discomfort.
_____ of the H-TTMED/H-TTCOMP/H-TTGEN.

Also an adverb in ASSERTION may be in subclass H-TMDUR.
Ex. Patient still has fever.
This class includes words which indicate that the event modified
took place over a period of time, rather than at a point in time.
A good test for determining whether something took place at a point
in time or over a period is whether the event can accept the
modifier "[LASTED] FOR A PERIOD OF TIME". For example, this
sentence is acceptable: "The episode of vomiting lasted for a period
of time". But this sentence is peculiar: "The date of discharge
lasted for a period of time". This class also contains other
qualitative temporal modifiers.
| H-INDIC/H-DIAG _____.|
Ex. Fever disappeared.
H-TTMED/H-TTCOMP/H-TTGEN/ BE _____ .
Ex. Medication was discontinued.
_____ of H-TTMED/H-TTCOMP/H-TTGEN.
Ex. Termination of treatment.
This class includes words which signify the termination of a state
or action [ex. 'tremors subsided', 'completion of surgery'].
Many verbs in H-TMBEG (or other H-TMxxx or H-CHANGE classes)
are used in the active and passive with the same time sense
('Fever ended', 'fever was ended', 'hospitalization terminated',
'hospitalization was terminated'). These are called in linguistics
H-TMEND can also be a "support class" to a word which has another
medical significance. For example, 'resolve' is both H-RESP
and H-TMEND (ex. "Patients chest pain resolved with Isordil").
All time classes (H-TMxxx) can be support classes. The full set
of support classes is listed in SUPPORT-CLASSES-LIST in
$LSPLIB/ESELTPL12.TXT, where for each support class, the H-classes
it occurs with in that capacity are listed. A support class occurring
with another H-class is not considered an ambiguity to be resolved.
| P _____ NTIME2.|
Ex. During the previous week.
P _____ H-TTGEN.
Ex. At a prior admission.
Ex. Previously mentioned.
These words mark a location in time of the associated event.
A preposition in the class H-TMPREP is not also marked H-TMLOC.
H-TMLOC can also be a support class
| _____ NTIME1.|
Ex. After last week.
Ex. During admission...
These words are prepositions (and one noun 'DURATION') that are
associated exclusively with time expressions, as opposed to
prepositions like 'AT', 'ON' which have additional uses besides
time expressions vs. ex. "at admission" vs. "at the hospital".
| H-INDIC/H-DIAG _____.|
Ex. Headache recurred.
H-TTCOMP/H-TTGEN/H-TTMED BE _____.
Ex. Treatment was repeated.
Ex. Second admission.
Ex. Patient ate regularly.

etc.), and adjectives that imply repetition, (ex. 'CHRONIC',
'ADDITIONAL', 'ANOTHER'). It also includes time repetition
adjectives and adverbs (ex. 'FREQUENTLY', 'OFTEN', 'MONTHLY',

but without a definite indication of the direction of change,
in contrast with the classes H-CHANGE-LESS, H-CHANGE-MORE,
H-CHANGE-SAME. It includes 'MODIFY', 'REVERSE', 'TAILORED',

H-DIAG words are NAMES of diseases (usually found in the
diagnosis and/or impression sections of the discharge summary).
The ICDA Manual has been used as the basis for this classification.
H-DIAG words are distinct from Sign/Symptom words (ex. 'STOMACH_
ACHE', 'FEVER', 'PAIN') which go into the H-INDIC subclass.
| H-PT H-PTVERB _______ P H-PTPART.|
Ex. Patient complained of tenderness in joints.
NHUMAN H-OBSERVE _____ P H-PTPART.
Ex. Mother observed redness around eyes.
H-INDIC words indicate a sign or symptom of illness. There
are several words in this class which need some further explanation.
The class includes its classifier or generic words such as 'PROBLEM',
'SYMPTOM', 'ABNORMALITY', 'ILLNESS'. The H-INDIC on these classier
words carries the attribute GENERIC.
Words negating a symptom observed in the Physical Exam, ex. 'AFEBRILE',
are classed as H-NORMAL and carry an additional attribute MORPH that
details the morphological composition of the word; this allows the
symptom part of the word to be accessed. For example, AFEBRILE has
MORPH: ('FEBRILE': (H-INDIC), 'A-': (H-NEG)), H-NORMAL.
| H-TXVAR/H-PTMEAS/H-TXCLIN/H-PTFUNC (be) _____.|
Ex. Temperature normal.
Growth and development - within normal limits.
This class contains words indicating normalcy, either for
a test result or for the patient. These H-NORMAL words have a
"normal" meaning regardless of the context whereas some descriptors
with no medical subclass, e.g. H-CHANGE words, may be positive or
negative depending on the context.
| H-PTPART H-SHOW _____.|
Ex. CSF shows HBV.
H-PTPART H-SHOW _______.
Ex. CSF shows H. Influenzae type B.
This subclass contains NAMES of organisms cultured out in
the course of lab tests, but only those that have other
properties in addition, since the majority of organisms
are named on a list obtained from outside sources. That
list deals only with nouns (singular and plural). Adjectival
forms (e.g. 'leptospiral') are to be entered in the dictionary.
Organism names that are also diagnoses (e.g. 'herpes', 'HBV')
must also be dictionary entries with both H-ORG and H-DIAG
attributes; otherwise the H-DIAG occurrence will not be recognized.
Thw dictionary should also contain the NAMES of classifiers
of organisms (ex 'PATHOGEN', 'ORGANISM'), which have, in addition to
the subclass H-ORG, the attribute GENERIC.
| H-TTCOMP P H-AMT _____.|
Ex. Night splint with great relief.
H-NEG _____ P H-TTMED.

blood chemistry tests (H-TXVAR), imaging and related
diagnostic procedures (H-TXPROC) or lab cultures (H-ORG).
| H-DEVMED BE _____ H-TTSURG.|
Ex. The suture is a water-tight closure.

Examples are: APPLE, CHESTNUTS, COCA COLA, DAIRY, DIETARY,
DIABETIC DIET, LOW-CHOLESTEROL, DINNER, FAT, HERBAL TEAS,
RESTAURANT, SALT, VEGETARIAN.
Notes: 'Postprandial' is both H-DIET and H-POST.
'Recommended' is H-MODAL because the subject (in the
example 'low-fat diet') is not a statement of fact,
i.e. the patient is not yet on a low-fat diet.
| _____ H-INDIC/H-DIAG.|
Ex. Questionable fracture.
Rule out meningitis.

Ex. Discharge is probable.
Ex. Apparently, patient was feeling well.
H-INST _____ H-TTCOMP/H-TTGEN/H-TTMED.
Ex. Doctor advised admission.
This class contains words which qualify the existence of the
term modified, making it to some degree uncertain. For example, contrast
"rule out meningitis" with "diagnosis of meningitis". This class is
distinguished from the subclass H-NEG which negates
the existence of the term modified. For example, contrast "absence of
meningitis" with "rule out meningitis". (The past tense of 'rule out',
hovever, is definite, and is classed H-NEG: 'Meningitis ruled out'.)
| H-PT _____ [to] H-TTGEN/H-TTCOMP/H-TTMED.|
Ex. Patient refused medication.
Ex. Patient never had headaches.
This class of words negates the existence of the event
modified. It is virtually a closed class.

or part-to-whole relation.
| H-PT H-TTGEN+H-TMEND H-TTMED /________/ H-INDIC|
Ex. She stopped aspirin because of GI upset
H-INDIC _____ H-INDIC
Ex. Fever caused the headache.
H-CONN words relate two sentential arguments or phrases
which are mapped into two separate information units.
The two information units are linked by the H-CONN word,
as the connective. H-CONN words, like other major healthcare syntactic
classes can take a time support class, e.g. H-TMEND occurring with
H-TTGEN in the entry for STOPPED, seen in the example of the frame.
| H-PTPART _____ H-INDIC.|
Ex. Lung revealed lesion.
H-PTSPEC _____ H-TXVAR + QUANTITY.

'reveal' etc. in that they go beyond the statement of observables
and include interpretation: 'confirm', 'corroborate', 'support',
| H-TXVAR _____ QUANTITY.|
Ex. HCT ranged from 24 to 35.
These words are laboratory or measurement verbs whose subject
or object is a lab test (H-TXVAR) or substance.

about a patient (or bring the patient into the hospital).
H-FAMILY words can have the attribute
FEM or MASC. Gender is marked whenever it is implicit in the word.
