T68.XXXA is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of hypothermia, initial encounter. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code T68 is used to code Hypothermia

Hypothermia is defined as a body core temperature below 35.0 °C (95.0 °F). Symptoms depend on the temperature. In mild hypothermia there is shivering and mental confusion. In moderate hypothermia shivering stops and confusion increases. In severe hypothermia there may be paradoxical undressing, where a person removes their clothing, as well as an increased risk of the heart stopping.
