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 P84:

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.
  • Acidemia of newborn
  • Acidosis of newborn
  • Anoxia of newborn NOS
  • Asphyxia of newborn NOS
  • Hypercapnia of newborn
  • Hypoxemia of newborn
  • Hypoxia of newborn NOS
  • Mixed metabolic and respiratory acidosis of newborn

Type 1 Excludes

Type 1 Excludes
A type 1 excludes note is a pure excludes note. It means "NOT CODED HERE!" An Excludes1 note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as the code above the Excludes1 note. An Excludes1 is used when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.
  • intracranial hemorrhage due to anoxia or hypoxia P52
  • hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy HIE P91.6
  • late metabolic acidosis of newborn P74.0

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 P84 are found in the index:
