    986 toxic effect of carbon monoxide, if this is current / acute

    You also need to code any manifestations and the E-codes that pertain to this incident.

    If the pt is presisenting with symptoms and only a history of exsposure place the manifestation (sympmtom) codes as primary and the V87.39 contact with and suspected exsposure to hazardous materials
