This diagnosis is a part of ICD10 collection.
If this happens repeatedly during the same ward or unit stay, only code it the first time it happens, regardless of whether it is an Admit Diagnosis or Acquired Diagnosis, rather than each time it happens. See ICD10 codes only coded the first time for other diagnoses coded this way.
- The parameters for coding hyperkalemia are any of the following 3 items: (This change is active as of Feb 12, 2018)
- K+ > 6.5 OR
- Any K+ > 5.0 AND in the presence of signs or symptoms believed to be due to hyperkalemia OR
- Any K+ > 5.0 with active treatment for hyperkalemia
- Main signs and symptoms of hyperkalemia are:
- cardiovascular - conduction abnormalities, ECG changes * V-fib, asystole
- ECG changes: tented T's * wide QRS; long PR * small, wide P's, sine wave
- neuromuscular - weakness, paresthesias * flaccid paralysis
- If it's due to a drug effect, then code that also (see the 2 lists below).
