Symptoms, Causes, Treatment, And icd 10 code for Acute Respiratory Failure
Respiratory that related to lungs is one of the important parts of human being. We would get a complicated illness if we have a problem with that. There are some kinds of illness that related to the respiratory. The danger one is acute respiratory failure.
Acute respiratory failure is a condition when fluid builds up in the air sacs in your lungs. Automatically, your lungs cannot release oxygen into your blood and here will not be enough oxygen for your organs. This disease also develops if your lungs cannot remove carbon dioxide from your blood.
There are some causes of this disease such as obstruction, injury, acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS), drug or alcohol abuse, stroke or chemical Inhalation. The symptoms are a difficulty to breathe, bluish coloration in the skin or lips and fingertips, restlessness, anxiety, confusion, racing heart, profuse sweating and some others.
In detail, the diagnosis code for acute respiratory failure ICD-10 is J96.00. It is a sub-classification that comes from diseases of the respiratory system (J00-J99), then other diseases of respiratory system (J96-J99), and then respiratory failure (J96).
Specifically, ICD-10 explains that respiratory failure happens when there is not enough oxygen passes from your lungs into your blood. Without oxygen-rich blood, your important body’s organs, such as your heart and brain cannot work well. This disease also can happen if your lungs can’t remove carbon dioxide from your blood. Carbon dioxide is waste gas that if it too much, it will harm your body’s organs.
Diseases and conditions that affect your breathing can cause respiratory failure including:
- Lung diseases such as COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), pneumonia, pulmonary embolism, and cystic fibrosis
- Damage to the tissues and ribs around the lungs. An injury to the chest can cause this damage.
- Conditions that affect the nerves and muscles that control breathing, such as spinal cord injuries, muscular dystrophy and stroke.
- Drug or alcohol overdose.
- Injuries from inhaling smoke or harmful fumes.
So, you have to be aware if you smoke tobacco products, drink alcohol too much, sustain an injury to the spin, brain or chest, and have family history of respiratory disease especially, if you are a huge fan of smoke and alcohol. You have to control the dosage of it. Acute respiratory failure ICD-10 mentions that treatments for respiratory failure depends on whether the condition is acute (short-term) or chronic (ongoing) and how severe it is. You may receive oxygen therapy and other treatment to help you breathe.
