Hi Rachel, here are a couple of websites that I came across when I googled hypothermia coding. The first article is more about the temperature rather than coding it, but in it it says 32 degrees and I know this to be correct because my husband had a major STEMI at 35 years old a couple of years ago and he was one of the first patients his age to receive such treatment in Bangor, Maine. Believe it or not, I actually remember precisely that the temperature had to be 32 and no higher than 34 degrees for it to work properly because we were not allowed to touch him for fear that his temperature would rise and complicate the treatment therapy, and his mother kept touching him. A big no-no apparently. Funny the things you remember in crisis mode, huh? Anyway, the second article discusses the ICD-9 and CPT coding, however, I am not sure how up to date the information is and if it is different depending on State, carriers, providers, etc. Hope this at least helps a little.
