The LIMS (laboratory information management system) database is a computerized record of specimens - from serum samples to carcasses - sent to the National Wildlife Health Center (NWHC) for processing and diagnostic workup. Data include history and recordkeeping information (identifier numbers, species, sex, submitter information, etc); types of tests run (virology, bacteriology, parasitology, chemistry, etc.) and some test results for heavy metals, particularly lead; and diagnostic results. The diagnostic coding system is based on SNOMED terminology, with certain modifications and additions to fit Center needs. SNOMED, the Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine, is a structured nomenclature and classification of the terminology used in human and veterinary medicine. Terms are assigned in any or all of the following six categories for each diagnosis: topography - detailed anatomic term for the site of interest; morphology - information on the pathogenic change or process associated with the topography; etiology - cause or causal agent of the disease or dysfunction; disease - disease, disease entity or syndrome; link - qualifier to link one diagnosis to another. These data include occurrence records for Avian Cholera and hosts for eastern US, by the USGS National Wildlife Health Center (NWHC).

Название USGS - Wildlife Health Diagnostic Database, Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), Eastern US, Avian Cholera and Pasteurella multocida
Финансирование Unites States Geological Survey Ecosystems Mission Area
Описание района исследования LIMS is a process-based record of samples sent to NWHC, and includes documentation on how samples and data move through the Center, as well as results information sent back to the submitter and other contacts. It may not be a representative sample of mortality for any particular species or group; however, the database can be used to determine if a disease/syndrome existed. For example, the database can be used to document avian cholera in mallards in California at a particular location or time, but it cannot be used to say that there was more cholera in 1990 than in 1980, since the number of specimens submitted for diagnostic workup does not necessarily reflect the total number of mortalities. Individuals interested in documenting total mortalities should reference the Epizootiological Database (EPIZOO), also maintained at NWHC.
Описание плана выполнения исследований The datafile was developed and is maintained by personnel at NWHC and is the result of years of diagnostic work by Center personnel. However, federal, state, tribal, and local agencies, universities and private individuals have all been involved as contributors to the system and their assistance should not be ignored.

Методы сбора

A complete description of the data set is provided in the document referenced in 5.2.2 (Diagnostic Database Coding Dictionary), including field lengths, descriptions and attribute value indicators.

Охват исследования Federal, state, tribal and local agencies, universities, private individuals and foreign governments have all been involved as contributors to the system; all have submitted samples and/or carcasses for diagnostic evaluation and have provided the history portion of the database.
Контроль качества Data are verified upon completion by case pathologist. Random subsets of records are verified for all fields on an intermittent basis. Values for selected fields are constrained and tested during data entry. When all work is complete, an assigned pathologist/clinician is responsible for reviewing the information, verifying its accuracy, determining a final diagnosis and issuing a final report. A summary of this information is then incorporated into the master file and becomes a part of the permanent record.
