Additional fields

why is DEATH_OT in tblBAS and not tblLTFU?

For mode of infection, origin and death a set of other fields are often used to capture what cannot be coded. These fields are represented here as optional fields as it is the intention that the suggested codes applied to the MODE, ORIGIN, DEATH_R1-3 and ICD10_1-3 should be able to cover all possible values.

  • MODE_OTH: Mode of infection OTHER
  • ORI_OTH: Origin of patient OTHER
  • DEATH_OT: Reason for death – other - description
