Chapter IX is concerned with diseases and disorders of the circulatory system and is probably one of the more difficult chapters for coders to understand and code correctly. Diseases and conditions affecting the circulatory system can sometimes occur together, or may be conditions within their own right. Sometimes you only need one code to explain the diagnosis, and at other times a number of codes will be needed to capture the whole condition.
At the end of this module you will be able to:
- explain how the circulatory chapter is arranged
- use the chapter to accurately code a range of diseases and conditions of the circulatory system.
