Bilateral open-angle glaucoma, not specified as to type; the right eye is documented to be in mild stage and the left eye as being in moderate stage H40.10X1 Unspecified open-angle glaucoma, mild stage H40.10X2 Unspecified open-angle glaucoma, moderate stage Explanation : In this scenario the patient has the same type of glaucoma in each eye but each eye is at a different stage, and the classification does not distinguish laterality at this subcategory level. Two codes are assigned; both codes represent the same type of glaucoma but each has a different seventh character identifying the appropriate stage for each eye. Patient admitted with mild low-tension glaucoma of the right eye, which progresses to moderate stage during the patient’s stay H40.1212 Low-tension glaucoma, right eye, moderate stage Explanation : When the glaucoma stage progresses during an admission, assign only the code for the highest stage documented.

Chapter 9. Diseases of the Circulatory System ICD-10-CM 2017 Chapter 9. Diseases of the Circulatory System Guidelines and Examples ICD-10-CM 2017 449 Chapter 9. Diseases of the Circulatory System (I00–I99) Chapter Specific Guidelines with Coding Examples The chapter specific guidelines from the ICD-1 0 -CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting have been provided below. Along with these guidelines are coding examples, contained in the shaded boxes, that have been developed to help illustrate the coding and/or sequencing guidance found in these guidelines. a. Hypertension The classification presumes a causal relationship bet ween hypertension and heart involvement and between hypertension and kidney involvement, as the two conditions are linked by the term “with” in the Alphabetic Index. These conditions should be coded as related even in the absence of provider documentation explicitly linking them, unless the documentation clearly states the conditions are unrelated. For hypertension and conditions not specifically linked by relational terms such as “with,” “associated with” or “due to” in the classification, provider documentation must link the conditions in order to code th em as related. 1) Hypertension with heart disease Hypertension with heart conditions classified to I50.- or I51.4-I51.9, are assigned to a code from category I11, Hypertensive heart disease. Use an additional code from category I50, Heart failure, to identify the type of heart failure in those patients with heart failure. The same heart conditions (I50.-, I51.4-I51.9) with hypertension are coded separately if the provider has specifically documented a different cause.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
