GESTATION LENGTH IN DAYS

The gestation length of a Fetus Episode recorded as the total number of days.

The calculation may be:

a.  calculated by ultrasound scan measurements according to the trimester of the scan
b.  estimated from the LAST MENSTRUAL PERIOD DATE
c.  estimated by clinical assessment (in the absence of a. or b.)

The number of completed whole weeks of gestation and the remaining number of days of an uncompleted whole week should be calculated from the GESTATION LENGTH IN DAYS for input and reporting purposes. Where there is no uncompleted whole week, the number of additional days should be recorded as zero.
