Today (October 1, 2015) the diagnosis codes known as ICD-10 went live in the US. I was wondering if there are any that are specific to spacecraft, space stations, or hypo- or hyper-gravity?
Yes, shared by MichaelT in The Pod Bay just recently:
There are others that you can search for by keywords on ICD10Data.com, for example:
- 2015/16 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code X52: Prolonged stay in weightless environment
- 2015/16 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code T75.81XA: Effects of abnormal gravitation [G] forces, initial encounter
Some of them are billable items, like 2015/16 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code T75.82XA: Effects of weightlessness, initial encounter that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes. There go them vomit comet profits :)
Spacecraft collision injuring occupant is actually listed as V95.42XD. In ICD-9 the code is E845.0
