Naming of "IR-TRACC" channels in DB

Post by DiVe » Mon Jul 15, 2019 2:42 pm

Dear colleagues,

I would like to have a discussion/decision for the future naming of "IR-TRACC" channels in the database.

Many longnames in the Possible Channel Table (and in the RED B document) do include the text "IR-TRACC".
This has been introduced to mark the channels of this specific sensors in the past.

Nowadays we have different alternative measurement devices available with other technology/naming.
To keep the database free of "advertisements" I would like to change the namings.

The easiest approach will be to remove the text from the naming.
Alternative proposals are welcome.

Some example lines:

Dear colleagues,

as dicussed on the meeting today:
  • The term "IR-TRACC" should be replaced by a general term for this kind of measurement device (Multidimensional Deflection Measurement).
  • The term must also been exchanged in the Chest Deflection figures.
Proposals for the general naming term are welcome.
Like:
MD-Sensor
MD-Device
...


Kind Regards,
Dirk

Dear Colleagues,

to have more ideas for finding an abbreviation to use as a "neutral" replacement term, I gatherer some ideas.

The starting point was the current abbreviation:
IR-TRACC InfraRed Telescoping Rod for the Assessment of Chest Compression

So here are some alternative not related to a specific product:
  • TRAD: Telescoping Rod for the Assessment of Deflection
  • TRAC: Telescoping Rod for the Assessment of Compression
  • DAD: Deflection Assessment Device
  • ADC: Assessment Device for Compression
  • ADD: Assessment Device for Deflection
  • ADCM: Assessment Device for Compression Measurement
  • DCA: Device for Compression Assessment
  • DMCA: Device for Multidimensional Compression Assessment
  • DMDA: Device for Multidimensional Deflection Assessment
  • MDCA: Multidimensional Device for Compression Assessment
  • DMCA: Device for Multidimensional Compression Assessment
  • MDMD: Multidimensional Deflection Measurement Device
  • MDM: Multidimensional Deflection Measurement
  • MCM: Multidimensional Compression Measurement
  • MCMD: Multidimensional Compression Measurement Device
  • MMD: Multidimensional Measurement Device
Additional alternatives or recommendations are welcome.

Kind regards,
Dirk

Dear Dirk,
from your proposals I prefer the part telescoping rod.
Multidimensional is only valid for 2D- und 3D-variants.

Best regards
Peter

Hi Peter,

meanwhile I am not sure if the "telescoping" part will match to all designs (Maria,...).

In the ISO/PDTR21002 the term "Multi-dimensional measurement system" is used.
This will give another option: MMS (or MDMS)

But still, then there is at least a 2D system addressed.

Kind regards,
Dirk

Dear colleagues,

as discussed on the web-meeting, here are the proposals:

Base idea: Use something, that sounds similar:

TRAC - Telescoping Rod for the Assessment of Compression
TROD - Telescoping Rod


and for the channels of multidimensional devices:

MTRAC - Multidimensional Telescoping Rod for the Assessment of Compression
MTROD - Multidimensional Telescoping Rod


Discussion still open.


Kind regards,
Dirk
