|MS-DRG||MS-DRG Title||MCD||Relative Weight|
|196||INTERSTITIAL LUNG DISEASE WITH MCC||04||1.7361|
|197||INTERSTITIAL LUNG DISEASE WITH CC||04||1.0056|

The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code P27.1 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
When you breathe in, the air travels down through your trachea (windpipe). It then goes through two tubes to your lungs. These tubes are your bronchi. Bronchial disorders can make it hard for you to breathe.
The most common problem with the bronchi is bronchitis, an inflammation of the tubes. It can be acute or chronic. Other problems include
- Bronchiectasis - a condition in which damage to the airways causes them to widen and become flabby and scarred
- Exercise-induced bronchospasm - a breathing problem that happens when your airways shrink while you are exercising
- Bronchiolitis - an inflammation of the small airways that branch off from the bronchi
- Bronchopulmonary dysplasia - a chronic lung condition in infants, most often premature infants
