    I am looking for ICD 9 codes for excertion induced chest pain and shortness of breath for an 11 year old child? Any ideas?

  2. Default
    Until the doctor finds out what is causing and states a diagnosis, I would just use 786.05 and a code from 786.5 subcategory. I don't think there is one of those that specifies upon exertion or child. Good luck.
