Accident and Emergency Diagnosis Tables

A broad classification of types of diagnoses which may be made as a result of Accident and Emergency Attendance.

Description

  • A broad classification of types of diagnoses which may be made as a result of Accident and Emergency Attendance. The full description is made up of codes from three tables - ACCIDENT AND EMERGENCY DIAGNOSIS, Accident and Emergency Attendance: ANATOMICAL AREAS and Accident and Emergency Attendance: ANATOMICAL SIDE. ANATOMICAL AREA (a classification of parts of the human body) and ANATOMICAL SIDE (an indication of the side of the human body) together give the Anatomical Site of clinical problems presented at an Accident and Emergency Attendance.

  • Certain items are sub-analysed to specify the diagnosis, investigation or treatment more precisely. These are marked with an asterisk. The diagnosis sub-analysis list follows the main diagnosis list, and the treatment sub-analysis list follows the main treatment list.

  • It is recommended that computerised systems provide a minimum of six character fields for each category in order to accommodate more detailed information if necessary. Where fewer than six characters are required for coding, such as for investigations and treatments, it is recommended that the codes are left-justified and the unused fields left blank.

  • ACCIDENT AND EMERGENCY DIAGNOSIS
