    Exclamation ICD 9 for Code Blue
    Medical Coding Books
    I am trying to code for CPR from a Code Blue so my Dx is unresponsive, no respirations, and no pulse. I am having a hard time finding a code for these. I am new to critical care and I am a little confused, any help or guidence would be great!

    We have always used 427.5, cardiac arrest.
