valueValueThe slices have different values in the nominated element.
existsExistsThe slices are differentiated by the presence or absence of the nominated element.
patternPatternThe slices have different values in the nominated element, as determined by testing them against the applicable ElementDefinition.pattern[x].
typeTypeThe slices are differentiated by type of the nominated element.
profileProfileThe slices are differentiated by conformance of the nominated element to a specified profile. Note that if the path specifies .resolve() then the profile is the target profile on the reference. In this case, validation by the possible profiles is required to differentiate the slices.

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

LvlA few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. For value sets, levels are mostly used to organize codes for user convenience, but may follow code system hierarchy - see Code System for further information
SourceThe source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
CodeThe code (used as the code in the resource instance). If the code is in italics, this indicates that the code is not selectable ('Abstract')
DisplayThe display (used in the display element of a Coding). If there is no display, implementers should not simply display the code, but map the concept into their application
