The method used to initiate or enhance labour.
Queensland Perinatal Data Collection (QPDC)
More than one method may be recorded for each delivery.
Code 6 Mechanical cervical dilatation
An example of this induction method is the use of a cervical ripening balloon catheter.
Code 7 Antiprogestogen
Also known as antiprogesterone or antiprogestin.
Queensland Perinatal Data Collection (QPDC):
If Baby's code type (QPDC) = I (Induction/augmentation method):
Validated against list of induction/augmentation codes.
Record must not exist if Birth event-labour onset type = 1 or 3.
Record must not exist if Birth event-induction/augmentation indicator (QPDC) = 1 or 9.
Record must exist if Birth event-labour onset type = 2.
Record must exist if Birth event-induction/augmentation indicator (QPDC) = 2.
For national reporting of the Birth event-labour induction method (NHDD) data element, this data element is mapped as follows:
Code 1 Artificial rupture of membranes is mapped to code 3 Artificial rupture of membranes (ARM).
Code 2 Oxytocin is mapped to code 1 Oxytocin.
Code 3 Prostaglandins is mapped to Code 2 Prostaglandins.
Code 6 Mechanical cervical dilatation is mapped to Mechanical cervical dilatation.
Code 7 Antiprogestogen is mapped to code 7 Antiprogestogen.
Code 8 Other is mapped to code 88 Other.
Code 9 Not stated/unkown to code Code 99 Not stated/inadequately described.
