This diagnosis is a part of ICD10 collection.
- This code is for AMI complications for which there isn't a specific code (see below).
- The question comes up of whether, in the "bin" of comorbid (preexisting) conditions, to use this code, or to use Past history, myocardial infarction (old MI).
- Both may be used for an MI that occurred prior to the current hospitalization.
- The general guideline is that if the prior MI is not active, and we're not dealing with any current complications of it, then use this code.
- But if the prior MI is still active and/or we're not dealing with any current complications of it, then instead use one of the AMI codes.
Alternate ICD10s to consider coding instead or in addition
Candidate Combined ICD10 codes
- If the AMI occurred in the same hospitalization, also code it as an acute diagnosis. If the AMI occurred before the current hospitalization, code the AMI in the bin of comorbidities.
