O88.32 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of pyemic and septic embolism in childbirth. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code O88 is used to code Embolism

An embolism is the lodging of an embolus, which may be a blood clot, fat globule, gas bubble or foreign material in the bloodstream. This can cause a blockage in a blood vessel. Such a blockage (vascular occlusion) may affect a part of the body distanced from the actual site of the embolism. This is in contrast to a thrombus, which causes a blockage at the site of origin.
