COMMENTS ON SUGGESTIONS IN THIS TUTORIAL | Print |

The suggestions in this special tutorial offer several advantages. First, they allow the certifier to state what is known without over- or under diagnosing SIDS. In other words, the certifier may "tell it like it is." Second, the suggestions do not interfere with current statistical classification and coding procedures. Third, the suggestions offer a way to provide complete information that may enable sub categorization of cases that present as possible SIDS and among the age group commonly affected by SIDS. In 2003, the National  Center for Health Statistics began capturing all text in the cause-of-death statement and it may soon develop special codes for conditions such as bed sharing. This would allow lumping or splitting of SIDS-like cases for more specific analyses.
