    Description

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

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

      Existing Wording:

      8352-7 - Clothing worn during measure and 8361-8 - Body position with respect to gravity MAY be included as additional observation codes.
