ICD-10-CM Code T70.9XXA
Effect of air pressure and water pressure, unspecified, 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

T70.9XXA is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of effect of air pressure and water pressure, unspecified, initial encounter. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code T70 is used to code Dysbarism

Dysbarism refers to medical conditions resulting from changes in ambient pressure. Various activities are associated with pressure changes. Scuba diving is the most frequently cited example, but pressure changes also affect people who work in other pressurized environments (for example, caisson workers), and people who move between different altitudes.
