    Joan, I'm looking for a code for hemodynamic instability also. Did you get any replies that were helpful. Clarice Oeltjen, CPC coeltjen@saint-lukes.org

    I used 785.51 for hemodynamic instability as this condition has many symptoms. The patient I had was also s/p avr.

    I used 785.9 for hemodynamic instability NOS. The instability was "possibly anaphylactic shock" but since it was not confirmed that was the cause of the instability, I had to go with "other symptoms".
