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?

  • $\begingroup$ I no longer have access to the reference, but there are/were space related ICD-9 codes as well. It was boggling how specific some codes were(not just the space ones.) Many times looking through that book, see something and think there is no way that has happened more than once... $\endgroup$ – Mr.Mindor Oct 1 '15 at 19:30
  • $\begingroup$ @Mr.Mindor you are correct I just checked and found E845.0 ACCIDENT INVOLVING SPACECRAFT INJURING OCCUPANT OF SPACECRAFT $\endgroup$ – James Jenkins Oct 1 '15 at 23:10

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:


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 :)

  • $\begingroup$ The entire V95.4 range is more like these. $\endgroup$ – Joshua Oct 1 '15 at 21:43

Spacecraft collision injuring occupant is actually listed as V95.42XD. In ICD-9 the code is E845.0

You can find the info here: icd10.nuemd.com/icd-10/codes/V95.42XD.

    $\begingroup$ There's no discrepancy, both (1, 2) list V95.42 as "Forced landing of spacecraft injuring occupant". Both also list V95.43 (1, 2) as "Spacecraft collision injuring occupant". I fail to see the point of posting this as a standalone answer just to say there's yet another site with searchable ICD-10 database. $\endgroup$ – TildalWave Nov 11 '15 at 22:10
  • $\begingroup$ I edited the question to remove the second link, it felt like spam and did not add value to the answer. $\endgroup$ – James Jenkins Nov 11 '15 at 23:48
