  REPRESENTATIVE_BEATECG representative beat waveformsThis Observation Series type contains waveforms of a "representative beat" (a.k.a. "median beat" or "average beat"). The waveform samples are measured in relative time, relative to the beginning of the beat as defined by the Observation Series effective time. The waveforms are not directly acquired from the subject, but rather algorithmically derived from the "rhythm" waveforms.
  RHYTHMECG rhythm waveformsThis Observation type contains ECG "rhythm" waveforms. The waveform samples are measured in absolute time (a.k.a. "subject time" or "effective time"). These waveforms are usually "raw" with some minimal amount of noise reduction and baseline filtering applied.

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

Level A few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. In this scheme, some codes are under other codes, and imply that the code they are under also applies
System The source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
Code The code (used as the code in the resource instance)
Display The 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
Definition An explanation of the meaning of the concept
Comments Additional notes about how to use the code
