The health authority has decided to release some results (discharge reports) in 
PDF form which we receive in HL7 format.

The line received begins with 
'OBX|1|ED|PDF^PDF||^TEXT^PDF^Base64^JVBERi0xLjQKJdP0zOEKM’. 

I’ve tried 

$BlobText:=substring([PatientLabResults]HL7Text;36;length([PatientLabResults]HL7Text))
BASE64 DECODE($BlobText;[PatientLabRequests]PDF_Blob)

which does not work.

They were nice enough to include a sample HL7 file and the sample PDF. The size 
of the PDF is 68,076, while the length of the HL7Text is 85,807.

So, what do I need to do to turn the encoded text into a PDF?
