This Code system is used in the following value sets:

This code system defines the following codes:

emergency EmergencySystem is unusable. e.g., This level should only be reported by infrastructure and should not be used by applications.
alert AlertNotification should be sent to trigger action be taken. e.g., Loss of the primary network connection needing attention.
critical CriticalCritical conditions. e.g., A failure in the system's primary application that will reset automatically.
error ErrorError conditions. e.g., An application has exceeded its file storage limit and attempts to write are failing.
warning WarningWarning conditions. May indicate that an error will occur if action is not taken. e.g., A non-root file system has only 2GB remaining.
notice NoticeNotice messages. Normal but significant condition. Events that are unusual, but not error conditions.
informational InformationalNormal operational messages that require no action. e.g., An application has started, paused, or ended successfully.
debug DebugDebug-level messages. Information useful to developers for debugging the application.

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

LevelA few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. 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
