    Question Sepsis coding question....

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need help with an icd-9 code for "early sepsis syndrome". i have researched this before and found an article that said when a physician codes "sepsis syndrome" they are essentially coding "severe sepsis". I did not print this article and cannot find it again. I would like to get some feedback from some of you that code sepsis more often and see what your opinion is. Thank you in advance for all of your help.
