This is the certificate for a 42 years old male.

I a. cervical fracture S12.9

b. aspiration pneumonia J95.8

Part 11 Septicemia A41.9

QUESTION: Do I code pneumonia as” resulting from a procedure” thus J95.8 or do I use J68.0 as per normal? If I have to use J95.8 then the underlying cause will be X59.9.

This is an external cause certificate and the first step would be to source any additional information on the accident/incident that caused the cervical fracture.

If there is no additional information available, I would assign the following codes for the certificate:

42 years old male.
Part I.
a. cervical fracture S12.9
b. aspiration pneumonia J69.0

Part II.
Septicemia A41.9

UC = X59.0


X59.0 is the code for Exposure to unspecified factor causing fracture. You would find this code in the alphabetical index (Volume 3), Section II (External causes of injury), lead term = Fracture
