2024 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code R06.4
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Acidotic hyperventilation
- Intermittent hyperventilation
Clinical Category is Respiratory signs and symptoms
- CCSR Category Code: SYM013
- Inpatient Default CCSR: Y - Yes, default inpatient assignment for principal diagnosis or first-listed diagnosis.
- Outpatient Default CCSR: Y - Yes, default outpatient assignment for principal diagnosis or first-listed diagnosis.
Hyperventilationa pulmonary ventilation rate faster than is metabolically necessary for the exchange of gases. it is the result of an increased frequency of breathing, an increased tidal volume, or a combination of both. it causes an excess intake of oxygen and the blowing off of carbon dioxide.
Syncopea transient loss of consciousness and postural tone caused by diminished blood flow to the brain (i.e., brain ischemia). presyncope refers to the sensation of lightheadedness and loss of strength that precedes a syncopal event or accompanies an incomplete syncope. (from adams et al., principles of neurology, 6th ed, pp367-9)
Brain Ischemialocalized reduction of blood flow to brain tissue due to arterial obstruction or systemic hypoperfusion. this frequently occurs in conjunction with brain hypoxia (hypoxia, brain). prolonged ischemia is associated with brain infarction.
Hyperventilationabnormally prolonged, rapid, and deep breathing.
Psychogenic Musculoskeletal Chest Pain with Dysfunctional Breathing|Musculoskeletal chest pain: psychogenic with dysfunctional breathing|Musculoskeletal chest pain: psychogenic with hyperventilation|Psychogenic Musculoskeletal Chest Pain with Hyperventilationa condition in which there is musculoskeletal chest pain associated with inappropriate hyperpnea or tachypnea. (acc/aha)
Hyperpneaa clinical finding in which there is deeper breathing than normal. (acc/aha)
Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries
The following annotation back-references are applicable to this diagnosis code. The Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries is a list of ICD-10-CM codes, organized "head to toe" into chapters and sections with coding notes and guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more.
Type 1 ExcludesType 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.

- - Hyperventilation (tetany) - R06.4
When you're short of breath, it's hard or uncomfortable for you to take in the oxygen your body needs. You may feel as if you're not getting enough air. Sometimes you can have mild breathing problems because of a stuffy nose or intense exercise. But shortness of breath can also be a sign of a serious disease.
Many conditions can make you feel short of breath:
- Lung conditions such as asthma, emphysema, or pneumonia
- Problems with your trachea or bronchi, which are part of your airway system
- Heart disease can make you feel breathless if your heart cannot pump enough blood to supply oxygen to your body
- Anxiety and panic attacks
If you often have trouble breathing, it is important to find out the cause.

 Not chronic - A diagnosis code that does not fit the criteria for chronic condition (duration, ongoing medical treatment, and limitations) is considered not chronic. Some codes designated as not chronic are acute conditions. Other diagnosis codes that indicate a possible chronic condition, but for which the duration of the illness is not specified in the code description (i.e., we do not know the condition has lasted 12 months or longer) also are considered not chronic.
