ICD10 Diagnoses and CCI Codes that need to be coded together
List to follow.
Procedures are NOT diagnoses, but are coded in their own separate Px Types --- in the situation that a patient comes to ICU postoperatively in a routine way (i.e. not due to some perioperative problem like shock), code the diagnosis that was the reason for the procedure/surgery
- e.g: patient comes to ICU routinely after planned/elective CABG -- acute diagnosis is Coronary artery disease, chronic, which is then ALSO coded as a Comorbid Diagnosis
- e.g: patient comes to ICU routinely after CABG done in the setting of an acute MI -- the #1 diagnosis would be Myocardial infarction, acute, but Coronary artery disease, chronic should also be listed as a Comorbid Diagnosis
