ICD-9 for abnormal holter results

  1. Default ICD-9 for abnormal holter results
    Medical Coding Books
    The physician did not specify why the holter monitor result was abnormal. How would I code the diagnosis "abnormal holter monitor". Would I use 794.31 or 794.39? I would appreciate your input.

    Thank you.

    I would use 794.39 as the 794.31 is specific to EKG or ECG

    I use 794.30 for abnormal holter results and abnormal exercise tolerance test results. I save 794.39 for abnormal nuclear stress. 794.31 is for an abnormal ekg.
