Acute stroke icd 9

Common Questions and Answers about Acute stroke icd 9


Avatar f tn 070.51 is the ICD-9-CM code for Acute hepatitis C without mention of hepatic coma. B17.10 – Acute hepatitis C without hepatic coma is the ICD-10 code. In the overall scheme of things ultimately the only person who really cares about those codes is the one processing your health insurance claim. The code might have been on your receipt from the doctor's office or your EOB (Explanation of Benefits).
Avatar m tn You have asked a really interesting question, and one I wrestled with when I needed a pacemaker and an ICD unit was suggested. After reviewing my Advanced Directives and my reasons for deciding I wanted no extraordinary measures to try and start my heart if it would stop or I had a stroke, etc., I opted for just a 'simple' pacer. If I were a younger, stronger man and thought I've come back strong after a stroke/heart stoppage, I'd probably asked for a ICD.
Avatar n tn Newbie here. Hubby has ICD, put in after acute heart attack 4 yrs. ago. He is high stress and has hard-to-breath episodes. Sometimes it seems stress related, but often for no reason. Is this heart related? Does the ICD prevent him from another heart attack, or could it hurt him in the event? Worried...
Avatar n tn my husband has an icd and brain damage was told he may last for 5 years if lucky is this true thank you
Avatar m tn I don't have the numbers for a Pacemaker, in fact I didn't know they require clot formation mitigation. Are you sure they do? Discuss with your Cardiologist. He/she can also give you any risk factors/numbers. My recollection is that permanent atrial fibrillation if untreated with a blood thinner increases the risk of a stroke by slightly lower numbers, around 2-3% annual chance, cumulative I believe. That is roughly a 20-30% risk in 10 years.
Avatar f tn Another treatment for ventricular tachycardias is a device called an implantable cardioverter defibrillator . The ICD is usually implanted in the chest, like a pacemaker. It is connected to the heart with wires. The ICD can be programmed to sense when ventricular tachycardia is occurring, and administers a shock to stop it. The ICD may also be programmed to send a burst of paced beats to interrupt the ventricular tachycardia.
Avatar f tn My mother-in-law was recently hospitalized for a low heart rate of 30 pm and the doctor put in a pacemaker. She had a stroke about two years ago and suffers from aphasia. She is still in the hospital recovering from the surgery but seems to be experiencing a lot of pain. My brother-in-law thinks she is acting as if she is being repeatedly shocked. He wanted to know if this is possible. My mother-in-law also suffers from atrial fibrillation.
3072999 tn?1356414732 Hi Tink, I am actually a medical coder for a hospital -the ICD-10 code would be G93.5. The ICD-9 code is 384.4. Since ICD-9 is not very specific they may have put a I after to show it is a Chiari Malformation type 1. In ICD-10 it is more specific - G93.5 states Chiari Malformation 1. So I am assuming since the ICD-9 code of 384.4 just states compression of brain they had to add a 1 so it was more specific for their notes.
Avatar f tn preclinical (no symptoms), acute, and chronic. The preclinical and acute stages are usually reversible when alcohol abuse is discontinued, except in cases of sudden congestive heart failure or acute heart muscle degeneration. Your medication treats high blood pressure and stablizes the heart rate. That is the same treatment I was given. A reduction in blood pressure will help to reduce the heart's workload...
Avatar n tn After 7 days on Depakote it affected her swallowing much worse than when she had her stroke. But she could have just has a stroke relapse. They took her off the Depakote to see if the swallowing would come back and it has not (been off it for 9 days). CAT scans did not show a new stroke, either. Very unsure if it was this medicine (the internet did say it can cause glossitis and dysphagia in less than one percent of females over 60 years old).
Avatar n tn I am a 31 year old male that has sinus tachycardia with normal blood presure and normal heart function I have had all the tests done but everytime I go to the ER I get mixed advice from the doctor some say I'll be fine others tell me that it could cause heart attack,stroke or even death.I am unable to take beta blockers or calcium channel blockers.
967168 tn?1477584489 m not pacemaker dependent, but I saw a new EP last Friday who did 45 min of extensive testing on my ICD. He said I should have never left the hospital with the leads the way they were or at the very least had them repaired within a few weeks time. I still have my original problems that I had before implant, pvc's & nsvt runs daily, pre-syncope, dizziness, shortness of breath but it did alleviate complete syncopal episodes.
Avatar n tn That must be the reason for the ICD proposal. I believe the ICD has nothing to do with your case of AFib. I will guess that unless there is something that can be repaired with surgery or medications, the ICD is for life. The good news I have read is if you don't need a shock very often you will adapt to the ICD, maybe just forget about it and go on with life. Good luck.
Avatar m tn He did talk about the heart pumping to fast and he could install a defibrillator. He felt I would have a heart attack next rather than stroke. No time element was given. I will do anything he suggest but........ Six days later I'm wondering if I've missed out on his suggestion, I didnt get it. WHAT SAY YOU?
378497 tn?1232143585 Is there an ICD-9 code for "cervical demyelinating myelopathy"?
Avatar f tn What could cause numbness on the right arm, hip and leg, nausea, in addition to acute chest pain.
Avatar f tn My mother suffered a massive hemorrhagic stroke on 7/28 and again had a smaller bleed on 8/8/14. She had surgery on 8/9 to drain the blood and relieve the pressure. The second Neurologist (different hospital) says they should have done this initially. She is in a transitional care facility now. I think the surgery was the right choice in less than a week she was showing sings of major improvement since the initial stroke.
Avatar n tn Rapid assessment of acute ischemia is critical for the management of acute stroke patiens who may benefit from thrombolytics or neuroprotective therapeutics. Differentiation of acute from chronic stroke, which may all appear hyperintense on T2- Weighted Imaging(T2WI ), is essential in determining the management of patiens.
Avatar f tn My resting heart rate was 30 before I had an ICD implanted 3 weeks ago today. I am 48, physically fit, exercise and jog every day, have no health issues at all (blood tests all perfect) and only have very minor dizzy spells, so minor that they were not even hardly noticable until I actually thought about it. However, my gp was certain there was a problem because 1 ekg showed Afib and the rest showed severe bradycardia and because of a family history with sudden death.
Avatar n tn The onset of pain under any circumstance shouldn't be ignored. I highly recommend that you pay a visit to your doctor as soon as possible. That said, I'm not sure why your post bears the title "Stroke". Strokes usually present over the course of several hours and involve a plethora of neurological symptoms, like confusion, difficulty speaking, memory loss, sudden lethargy, tingling or numbness down one side of the body, and sometimes a sharp pain in the head.
Avatar n tn Last week, she had a mini stroke (lost ability to speak for about 15 min where she forgets words but came back and she was normal) , took her to ER to be checked, an Xray shows an enlarged heart, EKG shows incomplete bundle block and Echogram was normal, no blood clots, no blockage, blood tests are also normal, no enzyms of heart attach or anything. They also do a TEE and AngioCardiogram no heart blockage but they are saying she has an EF of 26 % or less.
