Wiki Code A Round-Family Practice-help!


Best answers

I'm working on a Code A Round-Family Practice-Round 1-Note 2 and I am having such a hard time coming up with the ICD-9 code(s) for the senario. Can someone guide me in the right code range, there could be more than one ICD-9 code but I don't think so. I'm not asking for the answer. Any help is much appreciated.
