Wiki DX code for "Breath Sounds"

quinnwebb, in what context? could you specify a bit more? is it labored? normal? part of an exam?
DX for "Breath Sounds"

The doc is not being very specific. The patient does have COPD and GERD so I would expect there to be sounds while the patient is breathing. This is about all the info that I have. Thank you for your help.
in that case, I'd code the COPD and GERD and not worry about a dx for "breath sounds".. :)
{that's my opinion/advice on the posted matter}
I have used 786.7 before for abnormal breath sounds. But the doc stated what he was hearing. You can use 496 for COPD and that too would confirm any breathing problems.
