Table 1 Representations of abnormal states

From: An ontological modeling approach for abnormal states and its application in the medical domain

(a) Representation Abnormal states Property (P) Property Value (Vp) Attribute (A) Attribute Value (V) Object (O) Sub-Object (SO)  
Basic representation Gasrtectasia (gastric dilation) True Volume Large Stomach   
Nausea True    Patient   
Extended representation Hyperglycemia True Concentration High Blood Glucose  
Gastric polyposis True Number Many Stomach Polyp  
(b) Variant of Ratio Abnormal states Property (P) Property Value (Vp) Attribute (A) Attribute Value (V) Object (O) Sub-Object (SO) Ratio
m/n (no unit) High m ratio True Ratio High The whole Focused m/n
Example Hyperglycemia True Concentration High blood glucose Glucose/Blood
m/n (focused on m of same object) High m ratio True Ratio High Object m m/n
Example High Albumin ratio True Concentration High Urine Albumin Albumin/Creatinine
m/n (focused on the ratio of same object) High m/n ratio True Ratio High Object   m/n
Example Increased A/G ratio True Ratio High Blood A/G Albumin/Globulin
