He describes the pain as burning, tightness, squeezing pressure that radiates to the left arm. The episode lasted for approximately 10 minutes. The patient has a history of tobacco use, angina, arteriosclerosis, and hypertension. He used nitroglycerin SL x2 with moderate relief.

Part 2


Using the information in the progress note, decide which code correctly represents the diagnosis. Underline the code of your choice.









































Medical term
Medical code
Example: Angina pectoris 


In this example, I20.9 was chosen as a correct code because it matches the doctor’s diagnosis as it discusses angina.  


Let’s examine why the other codes are not appropriate to use.


I24.0 Code does not use the word angina.


K55.1 Code was not chosen because it talks about the intestines. This is not discussed in the doctor’s note.


J02.0 Code was not chosen because it talks about a Streptococcal sore throat. This is not discussed in the doctor’s note.
I20.9 Other form of angina pectoris 


I24.0 Acute myocardial infarction


K55.1 Chronic vascular insufficiency of intestine


J02.0 Streptococcal sore throat

O2.839 Unspecified renal disease in pregnancy, without mention of hypertension, unspecified as to episode of care or not applicable 


I87.309 Chronic venous hypertension without complications of unspecified lower extremity


O12.00 Edema or excessive weight gain in pregnancy
