Top 10 Diagnostic Codes
The Tenth version of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10), a system created by the World Health Organization, gives healthcare professionals a standardized set of diagnostic "codes" to classify medical problems to help track diseases, as well as see trends in injuries.
They try to be very comprehensive. Here are the Top 10 we've found ...so far.
Remember, THESE ARE REAL diagnostic codes in ICD-10:
V97.33XD: Sucked into jet engine, subsequent encounter.
W220.2XD: Walked into lamppost, subsequent encounter.
W61.62XD: Struck by duck, subsequent encounter.
V91.07XD: Burn due to water-skis on fire, subsequent encounter.
