Additional Info

  • Does NOT include iatrogenic or traumatic.

Just wondering whether this code could be combined with iatrogenic causes similar to the guideline for:

Guideline for Iatrogenic Pneumothorax

According to our general rule of not coding iatrogenic events as traumas, code an iatrogenic pneumothorax as


Iatrogenic, puncture or laceration, related to a procedure or surgery NOS

Plus the most appropriate of the following;

Pneumothorax, tension, nontraumatic

Pneumothorax, nontension, nontraumatic

Pneumothorax, nontraumatic, NOS

  • Allan made the initial entry of not to use this as an iatrogenic or trauma code in 2017, so let's discuss this at TASK Lisa Kaita 15:03, 2024 April 5 (CDT)
