Gravida / Para

I think the common EMS definition I've heard from several places is useful to use, but it's inappropriate to report GP to a receiving nurse/doctor using a different definition (even if they're going to eventually ask patient themselves...in some emergent conditions it might not be possible right away).
Maybe someone who works both in EMS and hospital environment can clear things up for me.... Thanks.

What concerns me is that EMS books (including my Bledsoe's Brady book) are giving an incomplete definition of Para (live births instead of viable pregnancies).
