x-Axis Findings Test Short Name Value
Use this field to specify the findings value to be plotted on the x-axis of the Bubble Plot.
The units along the x-axis depend on the Findings Domain to Analyze.
Note: When analyzing either EG or VS data, you must also specify the position value when the permissive variables EGPOS or VSPOS are present in the domain.
The characters and spacing must match one of the values of the LBTESTCD variable in the lb.sas7bdat data set.
If no value is specified, the process will, by default, search the LBTESTCD column for one of the value strings corresponding to alanine transaminase (“ALT “ "SGPT", or "ALAT") to assign to this parameter. If no LBTESTCD value contains these strings, the process subsequently defaults to the values for aspartate transaminase and searches LBTESTCD for either the "AST" or "SGOT"strings. If the LBTESTCD values do not contain any of the strings listed above, the process assigns the first sorted lab test in the LBTESTCD column.
The characters and spacing must match one of the values of the EGTESTCD variable in the eg.sas7bdat data set.
When EGPOS exists in the eg.sas7bdat data set, you must specify both the EGTESTCD and EGPOS values. To do so, concatenate the values and delimit them with a space.
If no value is specified, the process will, by default, assign heart rate to this parameter. If the string “HR” is not present in the EGTESTCD column, the process assigns the first sorted test in the EGTESTCD column.
EGPOS defaults to STANDING and then to the first sorted value.
The characters and spacing must match one of the values of the VSTESTCD variable in the vs.sas7bdat data set.
When VSPOS exists in the vs.sas7bdat data set, you must specify both the VSTESTCD and VSPOS values. To do so, concatenate the values and delimit them with a space.
If no value is specified, the process will, by default, assign a VSTESTCD value corresponding to diastolic blood pressure to this parameter. If neither the "DIA" nor "DBP" strings are found in the VSTESTCD column, the process assigns the first sorted vital sign test in the VSTESTCD column.
VSPOS defaults to STANDING and then to the first sorted value.
To Specify the x-Axis Findings Test Short Name Value:
*
Type the name of the value, from the Findings Domain to Analyze, to be plotted along the x-axis, in the x-Axis Findings Test Short Name Value field.
Note: This process is case-insensitive. You can enter either upper- or lower-case letters or any combination thereof.
In this example, VS was selected as the domain and diastolic blood pressure taken where the subjects are seated (VSPOS value = SITTING) are plotted on the x-axis.
*
Type DBP SITTING in the x-Axis Findings Test Short Name Value field.
