Additional Info

  • Note that this code covers not just overt respiratory failure, but all levels of respiratory insufficiency.
    • e.g. You can use it for a chronically hypercapnic COPD patient, or for a chronically hypoxemic pulmonary fibrosis patient, etc.
  • This code would likely be the main admit diagnosis to IICU for a large number of patients going to that unit
    • And furthermore, it's appropriate in the ICU record prior to IICU transfer to code it as an acquired diagnosis.
  • Also code the cause if known.
  • Also code Chronic dependence on mechanical ventilator if present.
  • Use this code for a patient who comes into ward or ICU from home or a chronic care facility or IICU, where respiratory insufficiency or failure has been present -- in this situation use this code as a Comorbid Diagnosis.
  • When a patient develops chronic respiratory insufficiency or failure after the start of their current database record, code it as an Acquired Diagnosis / Complication. And the decision that this occurred will be a clinical decision, made by the data collectors.
  • For a typical IICU patient, use the following codes if applicable:
