Medical term
Medical code
Example: Concussion with no loss of consciousness
There are a variety of codes to choose from, however, S06.0X0 was the code that detailed ‘with no loss of consciousness.’ This code was chosen because there was not enough detail provided to narrow it down to another code such as S06.0X1A (Concussion with loss of consciousness of 30 minutes or less.)
Subdural hematoma

(Nontraumatic subdural hemorrhage, unspecified)

CI cervical closed fracture

(Unspecified displaced fracture of first cervical vertebra, initial encounter for closed fracture)
Peripheral neuropathy
