Hi all,

When you work with quantities it is possbile to add more units, sometimes,
the use of different units have other LOINC-coding, this is for example with

LOINC:
LOINC LongName
Component    Scale      exUCUMunits
2160-0 Creatinine [Mass/volume] in Serum or Plasma        Creatinine
Qn         mg/dL
14682-9 Creatinine [Moles/volume] in Serum or Plasma      Creatinine
Qn         umol/L

Would it be good if it was possible to add code per unit-kind in
dv_quantity?
Or are there other suggestions

Thanks
Bert Verhees
