Respiratory distress syndrome of newborn

    2016 2017 Billable/Specific Code

  • P22.0 is a billable/specific ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes.
  • This is the American ICD-10-CM version of P22.0. Other international versions of ICD-10 P22.0 may differ.
  • Reimbursement claims with a date of service on or after October 1, 2015 require the use of ICD-10-CM codes.

Clinical Information
  • A condition of the newborn marked by dyspnea with cyanosis, heralded by such prodromal signs as dilatation of the alae nasi, expiratory grunt, and retraction of the suprasternal notch or costal margins, most frequently occurring in premature infants, children of diabetic mothers, and infants delivered by cesarean section, and sometimes with no apparent predisposing cause.

  • A condition of the newborn marked by dyspnea with cyanosis, most frequently occurring in premature infants, children of diabetic mothers and infants delivered by cesarean section, and sometimes with no predisposing cause.
  • A respiratory distress syndrome in newborn infants, usually premature infants with insufficient pulmonary surfactants. The disease is characterized by the formation of a hyaline-like membrane lining the terminal respiratory airspaces (pulmonary alveoli) and subsequent collapse of the lung (pulmonary atelectasis).
Applicable To
  • Cardiorespiratory distress syndrome of newborn
  • Hyaline membrane disease
  • Idiopathic respiratory distress syndrome [IRDS or RDS] of newborn
  • Pulmonary hypoperfusion syndrome
  • Respiratory distress syndrome, type I
Approximate Synonyms
  • Neonatal respiratory distress syndrome
  • Respiratory distress syndrome in neonate
  • Respiratory distress syndrome in the newborn
