T71.132A is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of asphyxiation due to being trapped in bed linens, intentional self-harm, initial encounter. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code T71 is used to code Asphyxia

Asphyxia or asphyxiation (from Ancient Greek α- "without" and σφύξις sphyxis, "squeeze" (throb of heart)) is a condition of severely deficient supply of oxygen to the body that arises from abnormal breathing. An example of asphyxia is choking. Asphyxia causes generalized hypoxia, which affects primarily the tissues and organs. There are many circumstances that can induce asphyxia, all of which are characterized by an inability of an individual to acquire sufficient oxygen through breathing for an extended period of time. Asphyxia can cause coma or death.

Equivalent ICD-9 Codes GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)

Asphyxiation and strangulation (approximate match)
Suicide and self-inflicted injury by other specified means (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 T71.132A and a single ICD9 code, E953.8 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
