    Description

      (Comment about http://hl7.org/fhir/R4/observation-vitalsigns.html#vitals-table)
      Device
      Such an observation is meaningless in isolation and should be a component, if it can't be accommodated with CIMI extension observation-deviceCode or with Observation.method.

      Make temperature device a method, component, or extension (VS ~ https://build.fhir.org/ig/HL7/cimi-vital-signs/ValueSet-heartRateMeasDeviceVS.html)

      Site
      For Site, use Observation.bodySite

      Existing Wording:

      8327-9 - Body temperature measurement site (oral, forehead, rectal, etc.) and 8326-1 -Type of body temperature device MAY be used as additional observations.
