Much Needed ICD-10 Codes

ICD-10 codes: Making the practice of medicine “better”

 

ICD10Engine

V97.33XD: Sucked into jet engine, subsequent encounter

How does one survive to even have a subsequent encounter?  I guess it has been done before: Jet engine survivor.

 

ICD10inlaws

 

Z63.1: Problems in relationship with in-laws

We see the applicability here…this will be used often.

 

 

 

ICD10duck

W61.62XD: Struck by duck, subsequent encounter

Watch out for ducks–especially during migration…

 

ICD10spacecraft
W22.02XD: V95.43XS Spacecraft collision injuring occupant, sequela

Just saw this last week…

 

 

ICD10bucket
W16.221 Fall in (into) bucket of water causing drowning and submersion

…why? just why??

 

 

ICD10bizarre
R46.1: Bizarre personal appearance.

All a matter of opinion…

 

ICD10skating
V00.01XD: Pedestrian on foot injured in collision with roller-skater, subsequent encounter

Beware of the roller skater this summer!

 

 

ICD10WaterSkiBurn

 

Y93.D: V91.07XD:  Burn due to water-skis on fire, subsequent encounter

One of my greatest fears!

 

 

Floods2015

 

X38.XXXA Flood, initial encounter
X38.XXXD Flood, subsequent encounter
X38.XXXS Flood, sequela

Using all three codes this year!
