Share on facebook

MedTerms 4 Fun www.medterms4fun.com In this video, N Epps shows how to analyze word parts, form a medical term, and define a medical term. In this example, we will use the term "Cardiology". Cardiology means the study of the heart. First, let's analyze the word by breaking down into word parts. Cardi is the root meaning heart. We will use the letter "R" for root. The letter "O" is the combining vowel. We will use the letters "CV" for combining vowel. -logy is the suffix meaning the study of. We will use the letter "S" for suffix. When we define the term, we start at the suffix and then move to the root. So, the term "Cardiology" means the study of (suffix) the heart (root).

    I understand that the guidelines state "uncontrolled" should be coded as hyperglycemia. What about the DKA type 2 portion? We have 2 opinions in our office and I am just looking for the correct way to code it.
    I suspect for my scenario E11.65, E11.69 and E87.2. Please help.
    There really should be an E11.1X...LOL!!
    Thank you,
    Anna

    Ketoacidosis is actually rare in a type 2 diabetic so that may be the reason for no specific code for it. So use the E11.69 with the E87.2

    Oddly, our physician's document it frequently. I will check with one of them to find out why we tend to have a higher volume.

What is DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS? What does DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS mean? DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS meaning - DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS definition - DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6Uu... Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a potentially life-threatening complication of diabetes mellitus. Signs and symptoms may include vomiting, abdominal pain, deep gasping breathing, increased urination, weakness, confusion, and occasionally loss of consciousness. A person's breath may develop a specific smell. Onset of symptoms is usually rapid. In some cases people may not realize they previously had diabetes. DKA happens most often in those with type 1 diabetes, but can also occur in those with other types of diabetes under certain circumstances. Triggers may include infection, not taking insulin correctly, stroke, and certain medications such as steroids. DKA results from a shortage of insulin; in response the body switches to burning fatty acids which produces acidic ketone bodies. DKA is typically diagnosed when testing finds high b

Alcoholic Ketoacidosis

Alcoholic ketoacidosis is a complication of alcohol use and starvation that causes excess acid in the bloodstream, resulting in vomiting and abdominal pain. People who go on a major alcohol binge often vomit repeatedly and stop eating. If the vomiting and starvation go on for a day or more, the liver's normal stores of sugar (glucose) decrease. The low glucose stores combined with lack of food intake cause low blood glucose levels. The low blood glucose levels decrease insulin secretion. Without insulin, most cells cannot get energy from the glucose that is in the blood. Cells still need energy to survive, so they switch to a back-up mechanism to obtain energy. Fat cells begin breaking down, producing compounds called ketones. Ketones provide some energy to cells but also make the blood too acidic (ketoacidosis). This ketoacidosis is similar to the ketoacidosis that occurs in diabetes except that, unlike in diabetic ketoacidosis, blood glucose levels are low. Symptoms Symptoms of alcoholic ketoacidosis include Breathing tends to become deep and rapid as the body attempts to correct the blood’s acidity. Similar symptoms in a person with alcoholism may result from acute pancreatiti Continue reading >>
