Quick search helps you quickly navigate to a particular category. It searches only titles, inclusions and the index and it works by starting to search as you type and provide you options in a dynamic dropdown list. You may use this feature by simply typing the keywords that you're looking for and clicking on one of the items that appear in the dropdown list. The system will automatically load the item that you've picked. You may use wildcards '*' as well to find similar words or to simply save some typing. For example, tuber* confirmed will hit both tuberculosis and tuberculous together with the word 'confirmed' If you need to search other fields than the title, inclusion and the index then you may use the advanced search feature You may also use ICD codes here in order to navigate to a known ICD category. The colored squares show from where the results are found. (green:Title, blue:inclusions, orange:index, red:ICD code) You don't need to remeber the colors as you may hover your mouse on these squares to read the source. Continue reading >>

  1. One of our CDI noted an elevated lactic acid and queried the physician for a diagnosis. The patient did not have Sepsis. Our physician advisor said not to do that because the next lactic acid was normal. She said we should also be looking for the underlying cause of the lactic acidosis and not querying for the diagnosis. A diagnosis of lactic acidosis will give us a CC. Other CDI's have said that if the elevated lactic acid was treated, monitored or evaluated we should be querying for the diagnosis. Does anyone have any direction on how this should be handled?
    Is lactic acidosis always inherent in other conditions and that's what we should focus on?
    What can we pick up the diagnosis by itself as a CC / when should we query to get to documented in the chart?
    Are there any other clinical parameters we should be looking at when evaluating whether we should query such as the anion gap?
    Is there a specific treatment for metabolic acidosis?

  2. What a timely comment. Recently, our coding auditor suggested that we should always keep an eye out for the cc "acidosis". It seems to me that lactic acidosis could be inherent to the disease process of sepsis and therefore should not be captured. Any thoughts?

  3. Hello all! I agree, I believe lactic acidosis is inherent to sepsis. It is one of the most important indicators that gives the clnician a clue that sepsis may be present. Our fluid administration policy was actually developed on the lactic acid result: the higher the number, the more fluid we bolused (in non-CHF patients, of course). In cases were Sepsis is determined not to be present, we will query the provider, providing they treated or monitored the acidosis in some manner

Kegg Disease: Myopathy With Lactic Acidosis And Sideroblastic Anaemia (mlasa)

Myopathy with lactic acidosis and sideroblastic anaemia (MLASA); Mitochondrial myopathy and sideroblastic anemia; Hereditary myopathy with lactic acidosis (HML) Myopathy with lactic acidosis and sideroblastic anaemia (MLASA) is a rare autosomal recessive oxidative phosphorylation disorder specific to skeletal muscle and bone marrow. MLASA has been associated with a missense mutation in pseudouridylate synthase 1 (PUS1), an enzyme located in both nucleus and mitochondria, which converts uridine into pseudouridine in several cytosolic and mitochondrial tRNA positions and increases the efficiency of protein synthesis in both compartments. Recentry, it has been reported that a mutation of the mitochondrial tyrosyl-tRNA synthetase gene, YARS2, also causes MLASA. Myopathy with succinate dehydrogenase and aconitase deficiency has been found to be caused by mutations in the gene encoding the iron-sulphur cluster scaffold protein (ISCU). ISCU is essential for the activity mitochondrial iron-sulphur proteins such as succinate dehydrogenase and aconitase. Inherited metabolic disease; Mitochondrial disease Continue reading >>

  1. Dm 2 with ketoacidosis

    I had a case to code a couple of days ago; patient had "diabetic ketoacidosis." There was no description as to the type of diabetes, so I went with type 2. At this point, I noticed there are combination codes for DM 1, DM due to drug or chemical, due to underlying condition and specified type NEC, but there is no combination code for DM 2 with ketoacidosis. I coded it as DM 2 with complication NEC E11.69 and Ketoacidosis E87.2. The doctor gave an additional diagnosis of lactic acidosis, which is also coded as E87.2. Does anyone have any insights on a better way to code this, or the rationale of not having a combination code for DM type 2 with ketoacidosis? (Incidentally, the patient also had urogenital warts, severe sepsis present on admission, and there was no mention of any kind kidney malfunction.)

  2. I found an answer on another thread that indicated to go with "DM specified type NEC with ketoacidosis (without coma) E13.10" instead of DM 2 with complication NEC E11.69 and ketoacidosis E87.2 (even though the type of diabetes is not specified); seems strange, but I guess that's what I'll do if it ever comes up again.

    Hello,
    As per coding Clinic Diabetic with ketoacidosis code is E13.10 below is reference from coding Clinic.
    Assign code E13.10, Other specified diabetes mellitus with ketoacidosis without coma, for a patient with type 2 diabetes with ketoacidosis. Given the less than perfect limited choices, it was felt that it would be clinically important to identify the fact that the patient has ketoacidosis. The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), who has oversight for volumes I and II of ICD-10-CM, has agreed to consider a future ICD-10-CM Coordination and Maintenance Committee meeting proposal

  • Is Ketoacidosis The Same As Lactic Acidosis

    Lactic acidosis is a form of metabolic acidosis that begins in the kidneys. People with lactic acidosis have kidneys that are unable to remove excess acid from their body. If lactic acid builds up in the body more quickly than it can be removed, acidity levels in bodily fluids — such as blood — spike. This buildup of acid causes an imbalance in the body’s pH level, which should always be slightly alkaline instead of acidic. There are a few ...

    What is lactic acidosis? It is a condition where lactate builds up in the body which leads to extremely low pH levels in the blood. Normally, your blood is alkaline or slightly basic. Lactic acidosis occurs when your blood is much more acidic than usual. Changes in blood pH levels can adversely affect your body’s organs.

    The buildup of lactic acid in the bloodstream. This medical emergency most commonly results from oxygen deprivation in the body’s tissues, impaired liver function, respiratory failure, or cardiovascular disease.
