    Hi All,

    I 've a case regarding ED visit. As pt come to ED for Acute Headache. Cause of Headache was mention in HPI as, Due to he was verbally assulted at work by his boss.

    So, does it is a Traumatic or Medical case. I considered as a Trauma & 784.0, E960.0, E849.3.

    I agree with Tessa, traumatizing but not trauma.
