ICD-10 Code T59.891

Toxic effect of other specified gases, fumes and vapors, accidental (unintentional)

Version 2020 Non-Billable Code Poisoning Accidental

Not Valid for Submission

T59.891 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 other specified gases, fumes and vapors, accidental (unintentional). The code is NOT valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10 code T59.891 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like accidental poisoning by acetylene, accidental poisoning by bromine compounds, accidental poisoning by butane, accidental poisoning by gas distributed by pipeline, accidental poisoning by halogenated hydrocarbon derivative, accidental poisoning by liquefied petroleum gas distributed in mobile containers, etc

ICD-10:T59.891
Short Description:Toxic effect of gases, fumes and vapors, accidental
Long Description:Toxic effect of other specified gases, fumes and vapors, accidental (unintentional)

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

  • T59.891A - Toxic effect of other specified gases, fumes and vapors, accidental (unintentional), initial encounter
  • T59.891D - Toxic effect of other specified gases, fumes and vapors, accidental (unintentional), subsequent encounter
  • T59.891S - Toxic effect of other specified gases, fumes and vapors, accidental (unintentional), sequela

Information for Patients


Poisoning

A poison is any substance that is harmful to your body. You might swallow it, inhale it, inject it, or absorb it through your skin. Any substance can be poisonous if too much is taken. Poisons can include

  • Prescription or over-the-counter medicines taken in doses that are too high
  • Overdoses of illegal drugs
  • Carbon monoxide from gas appliances
  • Household products, such as laundry powder or furniture polish
  • Pesticides
  • Indoor or outdoor plants
  • Metals such as lead and mercury

The effects of poisoning range from short-term illness to brain damage, coma, and death. To prevent poisoning it is important to use and store products exactly as their labels say. Keep dangerous products where children can't get to them. Treatment for poisoning depends on the type of poison. If you suspect someone has been poisoned, call your local poison control center at 1-800-222-1222 right away.
