HICDEP Development (#1) - tblDELIVERY_CHILD - Delivery information related to the child(ren) (5) (#98) - Message List
This is the fifth topic with discussions of tables related to pregnant women and pregnancy outcomes in view of potential inclusion of some of the tables/variables in the IeDEA data harmonization efforts.
Please see http://www.hicdep.org/wiki/Hicdep_1.100/TableDeliveryChild for the current version.
BM suggests to consider the use of the key fields
MOTHER_ID Patient ID of mother of child
CHILD_ID Patient ID of the child
plus the fields
DELIV_D Date of delivery
DELIV_M Mode of delivery
BREECH_Y Born from a breech presentation
BM and AS argue about the level of detail for DELIV_M. Should it just be vaginal vs. assisted or do we even need the possibility to code combinations of different modes (e.g. forceps plus vacuum)? Is it feasible to ask for a differentiation between primary and secondary C-section?
AS further questions whether information on breech delivery will be available.
