ICD-10-CM Code I47.1

Supraventricular tachycardia

Version 2020 Billable Code

Valid for Submission

I47.1 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of supraventricular tachycardia. The code is valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code I47.1 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like atrial paroxysmal tachycardia, atrial premature complex, atrial tachycardia, atrioventricular reciprocating tachycardia, atrioventricular tachycardia, atrioventricular tachycardia, etc

Short Description:Supraventricular tachycardia

Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries

The Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries is a list of ICD-10 codes, organized "head to toe" into chapters and sections with guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more. The following references are applicable to the code I47.1:

Inclusion Terms

Inclusion Terms
These terms are the conditions for which that code is to be used. The terms may be synonyms of the code title, or, in the case of "other specified" codes, the terms are a list of the various conditions assigned to that code. The inclusion terms are not necessarily exhaustive. Additional terms found only in the Alphabetic Index may also be assigned to a code.
  • Atrial (paroxysmal) tachycardia
  • Atrioventricular AV (paroxysmal) tachycardia
  • Atrioventricular re-entrant (nodal) tachycardia AVNRT AVRT
  • Junctional (paroxysmal) tachycardia
  • Nodal (paroxysmal) tachycardia

Diagnostic Related Groups

The ICD-10 code I47.1 is grouped in the following groups for version MS-DRG V37.0 What are Diagnostic Related Groups?
The Diagnostic Related Groups (DRGs) are a patient classification scheme which provides a means of relating the type of patients a hospital treats. The DRGs divides all possible principal diagnoses into mutually exclusive principal diagnosis areas referred to as Major Diagnostic Categories (MDC).

Information for Patients


An arrhythmia is a problem with the rate or rhythm of your heartbeat. It means that your heart beats too quickly, too slowly, or with an irregular pattern. When the heart beats faster than normal, it is called tachycardia. When the heart beats too slowly, it is called bradycardia. The most common type of arrhythmia is atrial fibrillation, which causes an irregular and fast heart beat.

Many factors can affect your heart's rhythm, such as having had a heart attack, smoking, congenital heart defects, and stress. Some substances or medicines may also cause arrhythmias.

Symptoms of arrhythmias include

  • Fast or slow heart beat
  • Skipping beats
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sweating

Your doctor can run tests to find out if you have an arrhythmia. Treatment to restore a normal heart rhythm may include medicines, an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) or pacemaker, or sometimes surgery.
