Trying to learn how to create tables...i have 6 columns. type_cd, item_cd, code_desc, code_desc2, code_desc3, valid_index. I need to add info like this:
 309.81 Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
 Acute: if duration of symptoms is less than 3 months
 Chronic: if duration of symptoms is 3 months or more
 With Delayed Onset: if onset of symptoms is at least 6 months after the stressor
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder core criteria:
 Duration of the disturbance is more than 1 month.
 The disturbance causes clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.
The person has been exposed to a traumatic event in which both of the following were present-
 Person experienced, witnessed, or was confronted with an event or events that involved actual or threatened death or serious injury, or a threat to the physical integrity of self or others.
 Person's response involved intense fear, helplessness, or horror.  In children- this may be expressed instead by disorganized or agitated behavior.
 309.81 Posttraumatic Stress Disorder would be type_cd 0..and the item_cd 1.....then the three choices acute, chronic, delated would be type_cd 1 and items_cd 1,2,3 right? Would the criteria also have the same format...or do I make different numbers all together?
