    Smile How many HPI's

    AAPC: Back to School
    Pt was seen in office for low back pain, left leg pain and footdrop. She left the office then started having chest pain and was admitted to hospital. Two days later we see her in hospital and review CT which demonstrated old compression fractures at T5, T6. There are components of T8 that appear new. We are reconsulted for these findings.

    How many HPI's do you count?

    Thanks in advance

    Default Elements of HPI?

    Are you asking how many elements of HPI are listed in the note you've provided? I'd first like to ask you how many you came up with and what?
