I think what that would mean is the patient had V fib and it put him/her into cardiac arrest. Now that you say the patient had cardiac arrest in 2007. make sure the dx you have is current and not s/p v fib arrest for todays encounter. Also coding guidelines are that if the patient is alive not to use the 427.5 as primary dx. .
