The list displays lab tests specific for the “Lab Category“ selected.

When entering information regarding a Lab not listed, only the “Other Lab” field is entered. The Lab section cannot be saved if data is entered into “Other Lab,” “Lab Category,” and/or “Lab” fields.

Baseline, Nadir/Worst, and Recovery or Latest

Values for “Baseline,” “Nadir/Worst,” and “Recovery or Latest” are mandatory for all Labs (except Microbiology).

Occasionally, “Baseline,” “Nadir/Worst,” and “Recovery or Latest” might be the same.  For example, a baseline value may not be available for an abnormal lab that occurred during treatment. In this case, the baseline value and date entered would be the first lab obtained.
