  <description value="A categorical assessment, providing a rough qualitative interpretation of the observation
   value,    such as “normal”/ “abnormal”,”low” / “high”, “better” / “worse”, “susceptible”
   / “resistant”, “expected”/ “not expected”.    The value set is intended to be for ANY
   use where coded representation of an interpretation is needed.   
   This is being communicated in v2.x in OBX-8 (Observation Interpretation), in v3 in
   ObservationInterpretation (CWE) in R1 (Representative Realm) and in FHIR in    Observation.interpret
  ation. Historically these values come from the laboratory domain, and these codes are extensively
      used. The value set binding is extensible, so codes outside the value set that are
   needed for interpretation concepts    (i.e. particular meanings) that are not included
   in the value set can be used, and these new codes may also be added to    the value set
   and published in a future version."/>

Usage note: every effort has been made to ensure that the examples are correct and useful, but they are not a normative part of the specification.
