Common cold (acute nasopharyngitis)
|Dx:||Common cold (acute nasopharyngitis)|
|Pre-ICD10 counterpart:||ENT infection - WITHOUT airway obstruction ( Laryngitis, Mono, Peritonsillar abscess etc)|
|APACHE Como Component:||none|
|APACHE Acute Component:||none|
|External ICD10 Documentation|
This dx was initially an infection requiring pathogen, but since the pathogen is almost never tested for, and when it is it'll almost always be Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) or Adenovirus, we decided to consider it a Category:Potential infection so that a pathogen will not need to be entered.
Alternate ICD10s to consider coding instead or in addition
Candidate Combined ICD10 codes
Infections in ICD10 have combined coding requirements for some of their pathogens. Any that have antibiotic resistances would store those as Combined ICD10 codes as well. If the infection is acquired in the hospital, see Nosocomial infection, NOS. See Lab and culture reports for confirmation and details about tests. See Infections in ICD10 for more general info.
This diagnosis is about a potential infection; this means it could be an infectious disease or not. This means we can not do any cross checks about it. Please remember to code the pathogen and any possible antibiotic resistance.
