If a patient has a final diagnosis of ARF, Pneumonia due to streptococcus A and emphysems with a history of continous smoking for 50 years and place on a mechanical vent and extubated 36 hours later is this the correct coding?

518.81, 482.31, 492.8, 305.1, 96.71, 96.04

Thanks for any help!

Your questions are seems like CCS exam question. Are you preparing for any exam or is it a real chart you are coding?

I am curious to know.

I already have my CPC. My current position I only code HCCs. I have been trying to get an externship so I can learn inpatient coding and outpatient. I am trying to go over case studies for practice. I am thinking about taking the CPC H course to show I can do this. I realized I have forgotten some rules since I haven't touched this since 2009. I just want to touch up. Should I post this somewhere else?
