ICD-10 Code T58.8X1

Toxic effect of carbon monoxide from other source, accidental (unintentional)

Version 2019 Non-Billable Code Poisoning Accidental

Not Valid for Submission

T58.8X1 is a "header" nonspecific and non-billable code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of toxic effect of carbon monoxide from other source, accidental (unintentional). The code is NOT valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.

ICD-10: T58.8X1
Short Description:Toxic effect of carbon monoxide from oth source, accidental
Long Description:Toxic effect of carbon monoxide from other source, accidental (unintentional)

Consider the following ICD-10 codes with a higher level of specificity:

  • T58.8X1A - Toxic effect of carbon monoxide from other source, accidental (unintentional), initial encounter
  • T58.8X1D - Toxic effect of carbon monoxide from other source, accidental (unintentional), subsequent encounter
  • T58.8X1S - Toxic effect of carbon monoxide from other source, accidental (unintentional), sequela

Code Classification

  • Injury, poisoning and certain other consequences of external causes (S00–T98)
    • Toxic effects of substances chiefly nonmedicinal as to source (T51-T65)
      • Toxic effect of carbon monoxide (T58)

Code History

  • FY 2016 - New Code, effective from 10/1/2015 through 9/30/2016
    (first year ICD-10-CM implemented into the HIPAA mandated code set)
  • FY 2017 - No Change, effective from 10/1/2016 through 9/30/2017
  • FY 2018 - No Change, effective from 10/1/2017 through 9/30/2018
  • FY 2019 - No Change, effective from 10/1/2018 through 9/30/2019
  • FY 2020 - No Change, effective from 10/1/2019 through 9/30/2020

The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:

  • Accidental exposure to carbon monoxide
  • Accidental exposure to carbon monoxide in industry
  • Accidental poisoning by carbon monoxide from blast furnace gas
  • Accidental poisoning by carbon monoxide from incomplete combustion of fuels in industrial use
  • Accidental poisoning by CO - kiln vapor
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning from fire
  • Poisoning by carbon monoxide from aircraft while in transit, without accident to aircraft
  • Poisoning by carbon monoxide from aircraft while in transit, without accident to aircraft, member of ground crew or airline employee injured
  • Poisoning by carbon monoxide from aircraft while in transit, without accident to aircraft, occupant of unpowered aircraft, except parachutist, injured
  • Poisoning by exhaust gas in aircraft

Table of Drugs and Chemicals

The code T58.8X1 is included in the Table of Drugs and Chemicals, this table contains a classification of drugs, industrial solvents, corrosive gases, noxious plants, pesticides, and other toxic agents. Each substance in the table is assigned a code according to the poisoning classification and external causes of adverse effects. Use as many codes as necessary to describe all reported drugs, medicinal or chemical substances.

Information for Patients


Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a gas that has no odor or color. But it is very dangerous. It can cause sudden illness and death. CO is found in combustion fumes, such as those made by cars and trucks, lanterns, stoves, gas ranges and heating systems. CO from these fumes can build up in places that don't have a good flow of fresh air. You can be poisoned by breathing them in. The most common symptoms of CO poisoning are

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Weakness
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Chest pain
  • Confusion

It is often hard to tell if someone has CO poisoning, because the symptoms may be like those of other illnesses. People who are sleeping or intoxicated can die from CO poisoning before they have symptoms. A CO detector can warn you if you have high levels of CO in your home.

General Equivalence Map Definitions
The ICD-10 and ICD-9 GEMs are used to facilitate linking between the diagnosis codes in ICD-9-CM and the new ICD-10-CM code set. The GEMs are the raw material from which providers, health information vendors and payers can derive specific applied mappings to meet their needs.

  • Approximate Flag - The approximate flag is on, indicating that the relationship between the code in the source system and the code in the target system is an approximate equivalent.
  • No Map Flag - The no map flag indicates that a code in the source system is not linked to any code in the target system.
  • Combination Flag - The combination flag indicates that more than one code in the target system is required to satisfy the full equivalent meaning of a code in the source system.
