Q: Why do I see some repeated lab names in the lab tables?

A: The website shows a simplified view of each map.  In the downloadable version, each map includes an additional name column containing a more detailed name that matches the LOINC code.  For example, “HCT” is the general name we give for these two separate labs:

Hematocrit [Volume Fraction] of Blood (code #20570-8)

Hematocrit [Volume Fraction] of Blood by Automated Count (code #4544-3)
