Unspecified atrioventricular block
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
I44.30 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of unspecified atrioventricular block. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code I443 is used to code Atrioventricular block
An atrioventricular block (AV block) is a type of heart block in which the conduction between the atria and ventricles of the heart is impaired. Under normal conditions, the sinoatrial node (SA node) in the atria sets the pace for the heart, and these impulses travel down to the ventricles. In an AV block, this message does not reach the ventricles or is impaired along the way. The ventricles of the heart have their own pacing mechanisms, which can maintain a lowered heart rate in the absence of SA stimulation.
