R06.3 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of periodic breathing. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code R063 is used to code Cheyne-Stokes respiration
Cheyne–Stokes respiration /ˈtʃeɪnˈstoʊks/ is an abnormal pattern of breathing characterized by progressively deeper and sometimes faster breathing, followed by a gradual decrease that results in a temporary stop in breathing called an apnea. The pattern repeats, with each cycle usually taking 30 seconds to 2 minutes. It is an oscillation of ventilation between apnea and hyperpnea with a crescendo-diminuendo pattern, and is associated with changing serum partial pressures of oxygen and carbon dioxide.
