Explanation
The first digit of an ICD 10 diagnosis code is always a letter. This is because the ICD 10 coding system uses a specific alphanumeric structure, where the first character is always a letter. This letter represents the category or chapter of the diagnosis, providing a broad classification for the condition. The subsequent characters in the code provide more specific information about the diagnosis, such as the etiology, anatomical location, severity, or other relevant details.

### Find the principal diagnosis in the below statement: The patient admitted 40 weeks and delivers a single live-born infant. The delivery was complicated by a first-degree tear of the perineum.

• A.

Outcome of Delivery - Single Live Birth

• B.

Perineal laceration during delivery

• C.

Both A and B

• D.

None of the Above

B. Perineal laceration during delivery
Explanation
The principal diagnosis in this statement is "Perineal laceration during delivery." This is because it is the main condition or injury that occurred during the delivery process. The statement mentions that the delivery was complicated by a first-degree tear of the perineum, indicating that this is the primary issue that needs to be addressed and treated. The other option, "Outcome of Delivery - Single Live Birth," is not the principal diagnosis as it is a general description of the outcome rather than a specific medical condition.

### Answer the following: Combination codes are single code used to classify two diagnoses, or a diagnosis with an associated secondary process or associated.

• A.

Definitive diagnosis

• B.

Default code

• C.

Residual diagnosis

• D.

Complications

D. Complications
Explanation
Combination codes are used to classify two diagnoses or a diagnosis with an associated secondary process or associated complications. In this context, "complications" refers to the presence of additional medical issues or conditions that arise as a result of the primary diagnosis. These complications may require additional treatment or management. Therefore, "complications" is the most appropriate answer in this scenario as it aligns with the definition and purpose of combination codes.

### Secondary diabetes is ________________ caused by another condition or event.

• A.

Never

• B.

Always

• C.

Maybe

• D.

B. Always
Explanation
Secondary diabetes is always caused by another condition or event. This means that it is not a standalone condition, but rather a result of an underlying cause. Secondary diabetes can be caused by various factors such as certain medications, hormonal disorders, or diseases that affect the pancreas. In contrast, primary diabetes, also known as type 1 or type 2 diabetes, can occur without any specific trigger or underlying condition. Therefore, the correct answer is "Always" as secondary diabetes is always caused by another condition or event.

• C.

V17.4XXA

• D.

V16.0XXA

B. V17.0XXA
Explanation
The correct answer is V17.0XXA. This is because V17 represents the version of the code for the initial encounter, and 0XXA represents the placeholder for the specific injury or condition. In this case, since Manish hit a street pole while learning to ride a bike, the specific injury or condition is not specified, hence the placeholder 0XXA is used.

To identify communicable diseases

• B.

To identify regional epidemics

• C.

To identify how many people are getting medical care

• D.

To identify causes of death

D. To identify causes of death
Explanation
The first use of an international classification system was to identify causes of death. This system was developed to categorize and record the causes of death in a standardized manner, allowing for better understanding and analysis of mortality patterns globally. It has played a crucial role in public health and epidemiology, enabling researchers to track and monitor trends in causes of death, identify risk factors, and develop targeted interventions to improve population health.

### Name three uses of the ICD-10.

• A.

Following utilization of resources, preventing healthcare fraud, and determining health policy

• B.

Assessing reasons for hospital visits, reporting vaccinations, and creating an anonymous medical report

• C.

Providing evidence-based data, tracking ambulance use in emergencies, and monitoring prescribed narcotics

• D.

Tracking infant deaths, planning a healthcare delivery system, and checking costs of healthcare in different areas

D. Tracking infant deaths, planning a healthcare delivery system, and checking costs of healthcare in different areas
Explanation
The ICD-10 is used for tracking infant deaths, planning a healthcare delivery system, and checking costs of healthcare in different areas. This coding system allows for the collection of data on infant deaths, which can help identify patterns and trends in order to develop strategies for prevention. It also helps in planning healthcare delivery systems by providing information on the prevalence and distribution of diseases and conditions. Additionally, the ICD-10 allows for the comparison of healthcare costs in different areas, which can inform policy decisions and resource allocation.

### What code would be reported when a newborn is seen in the pediatrician’s office because of a white coating on the inside of the mouth? Physician documentation indicates a diagnosis of candidiasis.

• A.

P37.5 Neonatal candidiasis

• B.

B37.0 Candidal stomatitis

• C.

B37.9 Candidiasis, unspecified

• D.

None of the above

A. P37.5 Neonatal candidiasis
Explanation
The correct answer is P37.5 Neonatal candidiasis. This code is appropriate because it specifically identifies the condition as neonatal candidiasis, which matches the physician's documentation of a white coating on the inside of the mouth. The other options, B37.0 Candidal stomatitis and B37.9 Candidiasis, unspecified, do not specify that the condition is neonatal, which is important for accurate coding in this case.

### Find the correct code : The patient is seen for a prenatal visit at 12 weeks. She states she is doing well. During the exam, a fetal heartbeat cannot be found.

• A.

Z38.1

• B.

O02.9

• C.

O02.1

• D.

O0.0

C. O02.1
Explanation
The correct answer is O02.1. This code is appropriate because it represents a missed abortion, which occurs when a fetus dies in utero but is not expelled. In this scenario, the absence of a fetal heartbeat during a prenatal visit suggests a missed abortion. The other options (Z38.1, O02.9, and O0.0) do not accurately reflect the situation described.

Rate this question:

• 20.

### Surgical aftercare codes:

• A.

Are generally first listed and explain the reason for the encounter

• B.

Only one aftercare code may be listed per claim

• C.

Aftercare codes are conditions the patient has had in the past but no longer exist

• D.

Aftercare codes do not exist in ICD-10 and the acute code should be listed with a 7th character describing the encounter

A. Are generally first listed and explain the reason for the encounter
Explanation
Surgical aftercare codes are generally first listed and explain the reason for the encounter. This means that when coding for surgical aftercare, the aftercare code should be listed before any other codes to indicate that the encounter is for the purpose of providing follow-up care after a surgical procedure. The aftercare code helps to explain the reason for the encounter and distinguishes it from the initial surgical procedure.
