ICD-10-CM Code T70.20XA
Unspecified effects of high altitude, initial encounter

BILLABLE
Billable Code
Billable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

T70.20XA is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of unspecified effects of high altitude, initial encounter. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code T702 is used to code High-altitude pulmonary edema

High-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) (HAPO spelled oedema in British English) is a life-threatening form of non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema (fluid accumulation in the lungs) that occurs in otherwise healthy mountaineers at altitudes typically above 2,500 meters (8,200 ft). However, cases have also been reported at lower altitudes (between 1,500–2,500 metres or 4,900–8,200 feet in highly vulnerable subjects), though what makes some people susceptible to HAPE is currently unknown. HAPE remains the major cause of death related to high-altitude exposure, with a high mortality rate in the absence of adequate emergency treatment.

Other and unspecified effects of high altitude (approximate match)

This is the official approximate match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that while there is no exact mapping between this ICD10 code T70.20XA and a single ICD9 code, 993.2 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
