Additional Info

  • These are things for which ANY PART OF IT IS in the body. Contrary to what Allan said before, it does NOT have to be entirely in the body.
  • Code this for such devices for which there is not a picklist option.
    • Example: for PEG tube you combine this "what was done" code with the "body part" code: (T) Stomach, Pylorus
    • Example: for VAD you combine this "what was done" code with the "body part" code: [[(T) Cardiac ventricle]
  • While technically, internal pacemaker or temporary pacemaker are internal devices, both are picklist items.
  • Technically a Porta-cath is an internal device, but it is coded as a central line, which is also a picklist item
  • And while it seems correct that a nephrostomy tube placement is an internal device, it's actually coded as Drainage, Evacuation of (T) Kidney
  • NOTE: We are only coding insertion/implantation of these devices, NOT their removal or subsequent management.

Collecting "CCI collect each" items

  • "CCI collect each" items are entered each time they happen
  • If they happen more than once on a day, enter the number of times as Px Count for that day, otherwise enter a Px Count of 1=== Removals are not coded ===

We are only coding insertion/implantation of these devices, NOT their removal or subsequent management.
