hello,
659.70-can be given for fetal arrhythmia affecting management of mother;
HPV presence is considered a uniquely identifiable disease- So, requires separate coding-795.05-better not to code with pregnancy related conditions-uniquely identifiable-
779.81, 779.82- can be assigned for neonatal bradycardia, tachycardia, respectively-
763.83-may be given for arrhythmia affecting newborn, unspecified as to time of onset, if required-

You could use 795.09-HPV positive, 079.4 HPV infection, 659.7X (fetal in wound)

You could use 763.8X-newborn with fetal arrhythmia (afterbirth/outside wound) :D
