How To Apply ICD 10 Code for Sepsis, Severe Sepsis, & Septic Shock

The Refresh With YES: ICD-10-CM Sepsis Coding Learning Path teaches learners how to apply the sepsis coding conventions and guidelines. In addition, the first half of this learning series examines the guidelines and examples of Chapter 1, Chapter 15, Chapter 16, and additional guidance related to COVID-19 and sepsis. Also, the ICD 10 codes for severe sepsis and septic shock will be reviewed. Learners will also discuss sepsis clinical information and various criteria. Furthermore, the second half reviews Coding Clinic references, sepsis code assignment and coding scenarios, and documentation excerpts; this also helps learners practice sepsis code and guideline application.
