Additional Info

  • Note that this code covers not just overt respiratory failure, but all levels of respiratory insufficiency.
  • This code will likely be used very rarely, because usually it will be clear if the respiratory insufficiency is acute or chronic. But on rare occasion you may come across a situation where it's NOT delineated. And this code is for that situation.
