Avatar n tn He recovered with little effect from the stroke other than mild memory loss. The ICD had been set at 50 bpm low to 169 high. After the stroke there were many fainting spells - as many as 2-4 per day. One in particular he sustained a head injury requiring stitches. It was determined that a higher heart rate was better for Tom by using the pacer part of the ICD to raise the heart rate to 70 bpm and the high was then set at 174 bpm.
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 f tn t seem to get rid of all the fluid. My Dr. has suggested that I should have my ICD upgraded to BI-ICD. Can you tell me exactly what the qualifications would be for that and would it help. I am on numerous medications and the list keeps growing. Also, my family DR wants me to be evaluated to see if I qualify to be placed on a heart transplant list.
Avatar n tn Most of the codes we see in the United States today are version 9, called ICD-9-CM codes. ICD-9 codes describe the reason for the medical services to commercial and government payers in alpha/numeric codes. Not linking the diagnosis to the proper code can lead to a denied claim. The diagnosis or clinical suspicion must be present for the procedures to be considered medically necessary.

Avatar f tn In the ER on the 24th the doctors did not do any CT scans at all even with allof his health problems.On March the 3rd my husband had a stroke and 9 days later the doctors told me he was brain dead. Do you think the doctors should have done a CT scan on th 24th of Feb.?

Avatar f tn I have one of the recalled leads from a Med Tronic unit. I have been having problems with trying to pass out or stroke like symptoms, also at night I have jerking all over that sometimes wakes me up. Could this be from the ICD lead that's recalled?? I have tried to talk to my doctors but they won't answer my questions. I know my heart problems I have had this problem since 2000 when I had quad-bypass. Then in Febuary 2007 they put an ICD in I was not told of the problems with this.
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 n tn Depending on how an MRI scan is completed it can show both acute and chronic strokes. Radiologists comment on the fact that there is no acute stroke either to indicate that they did special imaging to look for an acute stroke, or because this is a common reason to obtain a MRI of the brain. Chronic strokes can be seen with standard MRI techniques, and therefore the comment normal MRI excludes the presence of chronic strokes.
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 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.
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 n tn Two possible mechanisms might include (1) cessation of aspirin prior to the procedure, and (2) pacing of the heart from the new ICD. The latter explanation is more likely. Depending on how your ICD is programmed, your heart may now be in a paced rhythm, which can be less efficient than your body's natural rhythm. Another explanation (perhaps the most likely) is that the two events are unrelated. Talk to your doctor, and good luck.
