Thread: Dx for hemodynamic instability

  1. #1

    Default Dx for hemodynamic instability

    AAPC: Back to School
    We put in a CVL (procedure 36556) for a pt. with renal insufficiency, and also hemodynamic instability for fluid managment, pt. is status post colectomy.

    I have the Dx. for renal insufficiency of 593.0 and the s/p coloectomy of V45.72,
    I don't know what dx to use for hemodynamic instability or fluid managment.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    What is causing the hemodynamic instability? Cardiac perfusion failure? Circulatory shock? Advanced heart failure?
