I was wondering if anyone could help me with this case. I'm not sure what code to apply for Throat pain and swelling secondary to recent intubation. The pt came to us after being treated in the ER for respiratory failure, and we treated the throat pain and swelling.
Thank you,

How about:
998.9 Unspecified complication of procedure, not elsewhere classified
and
784.1 Throat pain
and
784.2 Swelling, mass, or lump in head and neck

That may be too many but I added the two 700 codes to explain the complications :)
