|External ICD10 Documentation|
- This code does not include cocaine poisoning -- even though cocaine is a stimulant, because it has it's own code Cocaine, overdose/toxicity
Poisoning by non-pharmaceuticals codes
- These are not pharmaceutical agents, and with the exception of Alcohol (ethanol), poisoning by non-pharmaceuticals and Cocaine, overdose/toxicity, they are all exclusively poisons
- To qualify here, there must be a threat to life, or limb, or to functioning for one or more organs.
- Note: The lack of pharmaceutical use for all the substances in this category is the reason why these codes have no counterparts for overdoses (with the excepts listed above), adverse events, etc.
See ICD10 Guideline for drugs and substances for more info on coding substance related ICD10 diagnoses.
