    actually i have 2 questions:

    is there a code for pregnancy with HPV positive and fetal arrhythmia?

    and for the newborn is there a code for newborn with fetal arrhythmia?

    thanks

    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)
