tblDELIVERY_CHILD - Delivery information related to the child(ren) (5)
 unsolved

Dear All

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.
