S00-T98 Injury, poisoning and certain other consequences of external causes




 
Excludes:

* birth trauma (P10-P15)
* obstetric trauma (O70-O71)

The chapter uses the S-section for coding different types of injuries related to single body regions and the T-section to cover injuries to multiple or unspecified body regions as well as poisoning and certain other consequences of external causes.

Where multiple sites of injury are specified in the titles, the word "with" indicates involvement of both sites, and the word "and" indicates involvement of either or both sites.

The principle of multiple coding of injuries should be followed wherever possible. Combination categories for multiple injuries are provided for use when there is insufficient detail as to the nature of the individual conditions, or for primary tabulation purposes when it is more convenient to record a single code; otherwise, the component injuries should be coded separately. Reference should also be made to the morbidity or mortality coding rules and guidelines in Volume 2.

This chapter contains the following blocks:

S00-S09Injuries to the head
S10-S19Injuries to the neck
S20-S29Injuries to the thorax
S30-S39Injuries to the abdomen, lower back, lumbar spine and pelvis

S50-S59Injuries to the elbow and forearm
S60-S69Injuries to the wrist and hand
S70-S79Injuries to the hip and thigh
S80-S89Injuries to the knee and lower leg
S90-S99Injuries to the ankle and foot
T00-T07Injuries involving multiple body regions
T08-T14Injuries to unspecified part of trunk, limb or body region
T15-T19Effects of foreign body entering through natural orifice
T20-T32Burns and corrosions
T33-T35Frostbite
T36-T50Poisoning by drugs, medicaments and biological substances
T51-T65Toxic effects of substances chiefly nonmedicinal as to source
T66-T78Other and unspecified effects of external causes
T79Certain early complications of trauma
T80-T88Complications of surgical and medical care, not elsewhere classified
T90-T98Sequelae of injuries, of poisoning and of other consequences of external causes
