Thread: Elevated Cardiac Enzymes

    Default Elevated Cardiac Enzymes

    Hey everyone,

    I'm trying to find out if there's a more specific code to us for elevated cardiac enzymes or elevated tromponin. I've been using the 796.4 (other abnormal clinical findings) because I can't find another code that seems appropiate. If anyone codes this differently please let me know! Thanks a lot!

    Take a look at 790.5. When I go to abnormal cardiovascular serum enzymes, this is what I get. It may be a little too nonspecific but so is 796.4, I guess. What do you think?

    Default That will work

    Thanks!
