SDD-1: Lot Number (EI) 02098

Definition: A unique number associated with an instance of a sterilization/decontamination cycle assigned by the instrument-tracking system.

SDD-2: Device Number (EI) 02099

Definition: The number of the device (e.g., 01 VAC).

SDD-3: Device Name (ST) 02281

Definition: The name of the device associated with the device number in SDD-2 (e.g., 01 VAC).

SDD-4: Device Data State (CWE) 02100

Definition: The state of data being sent, i.e., historic data of the cycle or a real-time snapshot of the current value of the cycle data. During a sterilization process, data is consistently being output to record the value of the data at each point in time within the instance of a cycle. For example, the temperature is recorded at every point in time during the cycle. Refer to User-defined Table 0667 – Device Data State in Chapter 2C, Code Tables, for suggested values.

SDD-5: Load Status (CWE) 02101

Definition: The status of the load. Refer to User-defined Table 0669 – Load Status in Chapter 2C, Code Tables, for suggested values.

SDD-6: Control Code (NM) 02102

Definition: A code to command the device to send cycle data from the previous load to the instrument-tracking system.

SDD-7: Operator Name (ST) 02103

Definition: The person who started the device load for the decontamination/sterilization process.
