The anamnesis (also called medical case history) of a patient describes the information gained by a physician by asking specific questions. These questions can be answered by the patient or other persons knowing the patient. The anamnesis usually takes place before the medical examination and is useful for the diagnosis.


In CGM LIFE the data type anamnesis is implemented as a simple data type with the combination of question and answer. For complex representation of anamnesis this data type cannot be used.


Use only in the context of an anamnesis (as described above).

Not use
