Definition

     Pre-existing co-morbid factors present before patient arrival at the ED/hospital.  

 

Additional Information

  • The field value (1) “No NTDS co-morbidities are present” would be chosen if none of the pre-existing co-morbid factors listed above are present in the patient.  This particular field value is available since individual state or hospital registries may track additional co-morbid factors not listed here.
  • The value "N/A" should be used for patients with no known co-morbid conditions coded by your registry or defined in the NTDS Data Dictionary."
