  Provisions for Medical Device Classification
Medical devices may be divided into contacting or inserted devices and non-contacting devices based on their conditions for use, which include the possible injuries they might entail as well as their impact on the medical treatment.
For the medical device to be used on several parts of the human body, the classification should be determined on the basis of the risks involved in its intended purposes and form of operation.
In case a medical device fails to be designated according to The Category of Medical Device Classification, its classification then should be based on The Regulation for Medical Device Classification at the discretion of the provincial drug administration, the result of which should be submitted to the State Drug Administration for approval.

  Classification - Classification Systems   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-08)
The classification systems used in disability sport generally focus on one or more of these variables: (a) the nature and severity of the athlete's disability; (b) the athlete's functional ability to perform skills associated with the sport; and/or (c) the athlete's performances in previous competitions.
Classification is typically conducted by persons who are expert in the sport; however, their judgments are often supplemented by observations by persons who have extensive knowledge of disabilities.
Although classification is supposed to be based on the athlete's abilities rather than training variables, athletes are concerned about the possibility that training harder and getting better coaching might result in a higher classification.

 Welcome To Biomedical Devices, Inc.
The Provisions on the Classification of Medical Device herein released were examined and passed by the State Drug Administration on February 17th, 2000 and go into effect from April 10th, 2000.
Article 4 The classification of medical device should be based on a combination of three factors: its structural characteristics, the form of its use and the conditions of its use.
Medical device falls into two categories: device that comes in contact with the body or enters the body and device that does not come into contact with the body, depending on the possibility of bodily injury during use and the effect on treatment results.

 Manufacturing : Medical Plastics Data Service
In the past, in absence of such classification, manufacturers were not serious about applicability of GMP requirements to their manufacturing units.
Medical devices that are used for the in vitro examination of specimens derived from the human body are not covered by the classification rules within this document (see Scope).
Take into consideration all the rules that follow in order to establish the proper classification for the device, noting that where a medical device has features that place it into more than one class, classification and conformity assessment should be based on the highest class indicated.

 NLM Classification: About the NLM Classification
Various instructional notes were added or modified to clarify classification practices, e.g., at the beginning of the WY schedule, an example was added to the second note to clarify classification of works on nursing care of a specific disease.
The genesis of the NLM Classification is a Survey Report on the Army Medical Library, published in 1944, which recommended that the "Library be reclassified according to a modern scheme," and that the new scheme be a mixed notation (letters and numbers) resembling that of the Library of Congress.
Since the representation of subjects in the schedules of the NLM Classification is intentionally broad, the captions do not enumerate all of the subordinate concepts that are to be classified in a given number.

 IWRF Classification Page
The early classification systems were based on medical diagnoses, such as spinal cord injury, and were not specific for the unique functional demands of each sport.
However, more recent transitions from medical classification to sport-specific classification systems have resulted in functional classification, where class is based on an athlete’s functional abilities specific to the physical demands of each unique sport.
Functional classification systems ensure that athletes with a combination of impaired or absent upper and lower limb movement have an opportunity to play the sport and that the strategies and skills of competing teams and athletes, rather than the amount of movement of the athletes, are the factors determining success in competition.

 Medical Devices Directive
All medical devices sold within the European Union must conform to this directive by June 1, 1998; however, this date is the end of the phase-in period, which began on January 1, 1995.
Because the classification of the device determines the appropriate conformity assessment route, it is critical that this important step in the overall process be made on an informed basis.
It also states that in the event of a classification dispute between the manufacturer and the notified body, the decision is to be referred to the competent authority (the organization that accredits the notified body) for resolution.

A nomenclature is a relatively simple system of names; a vocabulary is a system of names with explanations of their meanings; a classification is a systematic organisation of things into classes, and a thesaurus (such as MeSH) is designed to index medical literature and support search over bibliogaphic databases.
Medical coding and classification systems form part of current moves towards implementing a standardised "language for health": a common (computerized) medical language for global use.

 FDA Regulations and Your Business
In addition, classification is risk based, that is, the risk the device poses to the patient and/or the user is a major factor in the class it is assigned.
To find the classification of your device, as well as whether any exemptions may exist, you need to find the regulation number that is the classification regulation for your device.
There are two methods for accomplishing this: go directly to the classification database and search for a part of the device name, or, if you know the device panel (medical specialty) to which your device belongs, go directly to the listing for that panel and identify your device and the corresponding regulation.

 EPA: Federal Register: Medical Devices: Classification of the Dental Sonography Device and Jaw Tracking Device
FDA also proposed to classify the jaw tracking device into class I, when it is used to monitor mandibular jaw positions relative to the maxilla, and into class II, when it is used to interpret mandibular jaw positions relative to the maxilla, for the diagnosis of temporomandibular joint disorders and associated orofacial pain.
Following the effective date of the final classification rule, any firm submitting a 510(k) premarket notification for these class II devices will need to address the issues covered in the special control guidance.
Environmental Impact The agency has determined under 21 CFR 25.34(b) that this classification action is of a type that does not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment.

Therefore, the omission of hospital ambulatory care from the ambulatory medical care database leaves a significant gap in coverage and limits the utility of the current NAMCS data.
Third, hospital staffs were better qualified to abstract data since they were familiar with the medical terms and coding, knew the record keeping systems, and could complete the Patient Record forms at or near the time of the visit when the information was the most complete and easiest to retrieve.
The updated classification is available (reference 11), and the list of codes is shown in the section, "Reason for Visit Classification." The classifi- cation was updated to incorporate several new codes as well as changes to existing codes.

 Chinese Medical Psychiatry by Bob Flaws and James Lake, MD   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-08)
In this regard, it is important for the Chinese medical practitioner to realize that Western psychiatry assumes a biological basis for most common symptom groupings categorized as psychiatric disorders, including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, and many anxiety disorders.
As exact correspondences seldom occur between groups of symptoms described in Chinese and Western medicine, the Chinese medical practitioner or Western physician attempting to "think between" these two divergent systems of medicine is left with the task of inferring reasonable correspondences leading to accurate and clinically useful diagnostic and treatment formulations.
Chinese Medical Psychiatry is offered to practitioners of Chinese medicine and Western physicians as a bridge to guide their efforts to rigorously think between Chinese medicine and contemporary Western psychiatry.
