multiple identical OBX
where a "single test (protocol)" involves the patient bringing into the lab 3 chemically-treated, self-sealing "cards" each of which contains a smudge of the person's feces (yes, that's "bowel movement") applied using a wooden applicator stick... yuk)
Anyway this is referred to as a test for "occult blood" and may be returned as
which would seem to make the case that each OBX be imported as its own row (could the subid be stored in GNUmed as a subfield within our test_reult fk?)
