Additional Info

  • Here are the rules for when you can this code:
    1. if patient comes into hospital, from home or from a bed in a CHRONIC care facility and he/she is on the ventilator, then use this code as a Comorbid Diagnosis.
      • if the patient comes to you on a ventilator from any ACUTE care facility (including IICU), do NOT use this code.
    2. if a patient who previously was not on chronic MV leaves the hospital to go to home or to a chronic care facility on a ventilator, use this code as a Acquired Diagnosis / Complication.
      • if the patient leaves on a ventilator to go to another acute care facility (including IICU) and was not on a vent before admission, you do NOT use this code.
    3. If a patient who had some sort of acute respiratory failure and during a continuous episode of hospital care (which could include interhospital transfers), has been on invasive mechanical ventilation for at least 90 days or more, without any planned extubations or unsupported spontaneous breathing during that time, then use chronic dependence on mechanical ventilator as an Acquired Diagnosis / Complication.
  • NOTE: Someone can have this code AND also have acute respiratory event. Example is a person with COPD in Riverview on chronic vent, who develops a superimposed pneumonia with severe hypoxemia. This person should have coded: Chronic dependence on mechanical ventilator and a code for the pneumonia (but
  • Also code cause if known
  • Do NOT use this code for "Failure to wean" (which is not a valid ICD10 diagnosis). Code the type of respiratory failure present, see alternate dxs below.
