Product Classification

"The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has established classifications for approximately 1,700 different generic types of devices and grouped them into 16 medical specialties referred to as panels. Each of these generic types of devices is assigned to one of three regulatory classes based on the level of control necessary to assure the safety and effectiveness of the device."

Adverse Event Reporting Ontology

"The Adverse Event Reporting Ontology (AERO) is an ontology aimed at supporting clinicians at the time of data entry, increasing quality and accuracy of reported adverse events. AERO focuses on signs reported by clinicians as part of adverse event reporting forms, whether causality to the medical intervention as been established or not. Official releases will be marked as such, and will comply with ID and deprecation policies."

African Traditional Medicine Ontology

"The ontology consists of concepts or terms (nodes) that are linked by three types of relationships (edges). That means the ontology appears as a direct acyclic graph. The parent and child terms are connected to each other by is_a and part_of relationships. The former is a relation in which the child term is a more restrictive concept than its parent (thus divination is_a traditional_practice). The latter is used to show the inclusion relationships between concepts, for example that a potion_type is part_of a potion."

Datenbank für wissenschaftliche Schriften in der Pflege Thesaurus

"Für den Bereich der Pflegewissenschaft liegt noch kein umfassender deutschsprachiger Thesaurus vor. Im englischsprachigen Bereich ist der für die Datenbank CINAHL genutzte Thesaurus der wohl am weitesten entwickelte. Eine Übertragung in die deutsche Sprache ist jedoch aufwändig aufgrund zu berücksichtigender kultureller und berufsbezogener Spezifika. In Deutschland nutzt die Datenbank CareLit einen speziellen Schlagwortkatalog, der allerdings eine geringe Systematik aufweist und wissenschaftliche Aspekte nur in geringem Maße berücksichtigt.

"The thesaurus used for the database CINAHL is probably the most advanced in the field of nursing sciences, but it is not a comprehensive thesaurus in English. The Thesaurus developed for the database WISE is based on a keyword collection, which was built between 2001 and 2009. The terms in this collection were not systematized, and as part of the development of the database, the intention was to begin with a systematization of these terms, which is divided into two levels. On the lower level, subjects differentiate these topics. Keywords can be assigned to several categories.

Thésaurus en Éducation pour la Santé

"Le thesaurus en éducation pour la santé a été élaboré à partir de la version 2 du thesaurus BDSP (Banque de données santé publique), utilisée à l’Institut national de prévention et d’éducation pour la santé et dans quelques comités d’éducation pour la santé. Ce thesaurus BDSP 2 comporte 5 200 descripteurs et présente de vastes possibilités d’utilisation dans des domaines comme l’épidémiologie, le soin ou encore les technologies de la santé.

"In each microthesaurus, the descriptors are organized in a hierarchical way and represent the semantic organization of a domain. "
