Additional Info

  • Hanging is not a diagnosis, but a mechanism that might have caused a diagnosis.
  • Specifically, if there is an anoxic injury due to hanging, code Brain injury, diffuse (TBI), injury/trauma with Mechanism of injury: hanging or strangulation (accidental or intentional)
  • Some other related codes re the injury to the neck itself were discussed at task, can a collector pls fill them in for more comprehensive guidance re what might be codable with a hanging? Ttenbergen 10:18, 2021 November 10 (CST)
