Valid for Submission
G47.39 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of other sleep apnea. The code G47.39 is valid during the fiscal year 2021 from October 01, 2020 through September 30, 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code G47.39 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like acquired central alveolar hypoventilation, central alveolar hypoventilation syndrome, central sleep apnea syndrome, mixed sleep apnea, obstructive sleep apnea syndrome , organic sleep apnea, etc.
Index to Diseases and Injuries
The Index to Diseases and Injuries is an alphabetical listing of medical terms, with each term mapped to one or more ICD-10 code(s). The following references for the code G47.39 are found in the index:
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Acquired central alveolar hypoventilation
- Central alveolar hypoventilation syndrome
- Central sleep apnea syndrome
- Mixed sleep apnea
- Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome
- Organic sleep apnea
- Organic sleep disorder
- Sleep-related neurogenic tachypnea
- SLEEP APNEA SYNDROMES-. disorders characterized by multiple cessations of respirations during sleep that induce partial arousals and interfere with the maintenance of sleep. sleep apnea syndromes are divided into central see sleep apnea central obstructive see sleep apnea obstructive and mixed central obstructive types.
- SLEEP APNEA OBSTRUCTIVE-. a disorder characterized by recurrent apneas during sleep despite persistent respiratory efforts. it is due to upper airway obstruction. the respiratory pauses may induce hypercapnia or hypoxia. cardiac arrhythmias and elevation of systemic and pulmonary arterial pressures may occur. frequent partial arousals occur throughout sleep resulting in relative sleep deprivation and daytime tiredness. associated conditions include obesity; acromegaly; myxedema; micrognathia; myotonic dystrophy; adenotonsilar dystrophy; and neuromuscular diseases. from adams et al. principles of neurology 6th ed p395
- SLEEP APNEA CENTRAL-. a condition associated with multiple episodes of sleep apnea which are distinguished from obstructive sleep apnea sleep apnea obstructive by the complete cessation of efforts to breathe. this disorder is associated with dysfunction of central nervous system centers that regulate respiration.
Convert G47.39 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code G47.39 its ICD-9 equivalent. The approximate mapping means there is not an exact match between the ICD-10 code and the ICD-9 code and the mapped code is not a precise representation of the original code.
Information for Patients
Also called: Sleep-disordered breathing
Sleep apnea is a common disorder that causes your breathing to stop or get very shallow. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour.
The most common type is obstructive sleep apnea. It causes your airway to collapse or become blocked during sleep. Normal breathing starts again with a snort or choking sound. People with sleep apnea often snore loudly. However, not everyone who snores has sleep apnea.
You are more at risk for sleep apnea if you are overweight, male, or have a family history or small airways. Children with enlarged tonsils or adenoids may also get it.
Doctors diagnose sleep apnea based on medical and family histories, a physical exam, and sleep study results.
When your sleep is interrupted throughout the night, you can be drowsy during the day. People with sleep apnea are at higher risk for car crashes, work-related accidents, and other medical problems. If you have it, it is important to get treatment. Lifestyle changes, mouthpieces, surgery, and breathing devices can treat sleep apnea in many people.
