Description

A SNOMED CT codelist describing primary care requests for total cholesterol.

Methodology

2 search strategies were used: 1: SNOMED codes for existing CTV3 codes in SRO notebooks (using Kahootz CTV3 browser) 2: Search for "cholesterol" and selecting any codes which related to total cholesterol monitoring and level.

Whether codes relating to "monitoring" rather than "level" need to excluded is still to be determined.
