Acute Diastolic Dysfunction

    Exclamation Acute Diastolic Dysfunction
    Medical Coding Books
    How would you code "acute diastolic dysfunction congestive heart failure with acute pulmonary hypertension". The patient also has "chreoathetoid type movements", and "acute renal failure with metabolic acidosis and hyperphosphatemia, etiology undetermined" and "acute normocytic anemia of undetermined etiology". So far I have 584.9 Acute Renal Failure, 285.9 Unspecified Anemia, and 781.0 Abnormal involunatry movements. Can anyone help? I am stuck.

    Look at:
    423.31diastolic heart failure acute
    428.0 congestive heart failure, unspecified
    275.3 disorder of phosporus metabolism
    588.89 specified disorders resulting from impaired renal function (metabolic acidosis)
    and of course those you already have.
    See what you think?
