Profile Details[edit | edit source]

Parent Resource[edit | edit source]

Constraints to be Applied[edit | edit source]

  • parent = Resource(MedicalDeviceSystem)

Extensions to be Applied[edit | edit source]

  • None

Example Scenarios[edit | edit source]

  • A plugin module (virtual medical device) from a patient monitoring system containment tree.

Scope of coverage[edit | edit source]

The VirtualMedicalDevice profile describes the characteristics, operational status and capabilities of a medical-related subsystem. It can either be a physical hardware piece or a pure software plugin component of a medical device.


For the initial scope, this VirtualMedicalDevice profile is only applicable to describe a single VMD node represents in the containment tree that is produced by the context scanner in any medical device that implements or derives from the ISO/IEEE 11073 standard.
