Special Characters for displaying reference ranges

Hi,

I want to display the reference ranges for the lab results as part of the
question description as indicated below:

"… Normal Range: <= 140 mg%, High Range: >140 mg% "

However, the form does not save indicating there are special characters
being used in the form. I had to end up writing a statement as "Enter GCT
Value (in mg%) (Normal: less than or equal to 140 mg%, High: greater than
140 mg%)

As you know in healthcare, displaying the lab results in a specific format
is very important. Let me know if there is any other option available.

I have also thought about adding reference ranges as “images” to be linked
to the question so that my question will look something like the following
on the phone (but that might be a maintainability issue)

Enter the GCT Value for the patient (in mg%)

··· ________________________

Reference Ranges:
Normal : <= 140 mg%
High : > 140 mg%

It will be good to have the following added to the decimal and integer
field types.

  • Reference Ranges: Allow the users to add the reference ranges by age and
    gender.
  • Symbol Indicator for displaying high or low values. (Currently using two
    labels with display logic to indicate to the users regarding a high or a
    low value.)

Hi Manish,

You can replace the “<” and “>” signs with “<” and “>”, respectively,
which will show up correctly on the phone.
