Time based data

Page history last edited by Bernard Farrell 11 years, 4 months ago

The main categories of data I'm interested in developing formats for are:

 

  1. Insulin doses (basal and bolus)
  2. Blood glucose readings
  3. Ketone readings
  4. Comments.

 

These types of values are time-based.

  • I give myself an injection of insulin: 1.2 units of humalog insulin at 11:30 AM on Tuesday.
  • At 7:45 PM on Wednesday my blood glucose is 145 mg/dL.
  • I take an extended bolus of 2.1 units novolog insulin starting 10:15 AM on Friday. This is delivered over 2 hours.
  • I want to note that I was exercising heavily from 7:30 AM to 9:15 on Saturday.

 

So what we're really talking about is an event that occurs at a given date and time, or starts on a given date and time and ends on a given date and time.

 

In Microformats, events are usually represented as hCalendar objects.

 

Can we simply use an existing Microformat to represent our data types?

 

What are the pros and cons of this?

 

One big advantage. There are many tools out there that will allow you to convert hCalendar objects into things that can be imported into your Outlook calendar or other software.
