Combine multiple OBX fields into one by removing carets ^
I have done some digging and havent come accross anything that works specific to this.

I need to remove the carets and make each field show up in OBX.5.1 separated by a comma. There is no telling how many total fields there will be or how many OBX lines will contain the carets so I need to check all lines.

I am looking to take an obx line shown here:

OBX|24|TX|ID^Chief complaint:||C/O SOB, COUGH, CP^14.3 MCI 133XE^4.9 MCI 99MTC MAA^PTINJECTED: RT WRIST IV

And make it look like this:

OBX|24|TX|ID^Chief complaint:||C/O SOB, COUGH, CP,14.3 MCI 133XE,4.9 MCI 99MTC MAA,PTINJECTED: RT WRIST IV

Thank you!

narupley's example (different post) of parsing children (at the carets) into tildes led me to this solution:

/*Replace OBX.5 carets (sub field delimiters) with commas - art quillen 5/28/2014
 * code.toString within a child: extracts one subsegment/field between delimiters
 * Note that delimiters include pipe (|) and caret (^). Adds a comma at end of each
 * extract to effectively replace the delimiters with commas. Note that the last
 * delimiter (|) becomes a comma too, so finish up by dropping last comma via regex

for each (obx in msg.OBX) {
        var codeGroup = '';
        for each (code in obx['OBX.5'].children()) codeGroup += code.toString()+",";
        obx['OBX.5'] = codeGroup.replace(/,$/, "");

narupley provided this:


for each (ft1 in msg.FT1) {
        var codeGroup = <></>;
        for each (code in ft1['FT1.26'].children())
                codeGroup += <FT1.26><FT1.26.1>{code.toString()}</FT1.26.1></FT1.26>;
        ft1['FT1.26'] = codeGroup;
