Additional Info



  • I think this code should be eliminated from the list. We don't collect flatulence, or burping, so why sneezing?
    • ~Cough~ If we go there, we need to review all of Category:Symptom/Sign. I think a lot of these were added because we don't allow coding of "suspected" somethings, and if a pt leaves before a dx is provided, we need to be able to code something.

Symptom/Sign/Test Result not needed when cause known

  • This code identifies a symptom or a sign, or an abnormal test result, not a disorder.
    • So, you must strive to code the cause of the symptom or sign, if known.
    • And if you do know the cause and code it, also coding this symptom/sign as Combined ICD10 codes is OK, but optional.
      • In the case of multi-system diagnoses, where a specific symptom/sign/test result is actually causing the hospital admission, and this would not be clear from just the condition itself, do make sure you code the symptom as well.

Patient who has Wegener's granulomatosis is admitted due to Hemoptysis. Usually coding the Hemoptysis would be optional, but Wegener's granulomatosis doesn't always present with this, and unless it is causing problems it would not alone be a reason to admit the patient, so you should code the Hemoptysis.

  • Sometimes there may be multiple symptom/sign/test result that might or might NOT be related by virtue of having the same underlying cause. Since in the absence of KNOWING that cause, such assumptions may well be incorrect, do NOT combine them together if you are not certain they actually have the same underlying cause.
