Type 1 Excludes
Type 1 Excludes Help
A type 1 excludes note is a pure excludes. It means "not coded here". A type 1 excludes note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as E87.2. A type 1 excludes note is for used for when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.

Clinical Information
  • A condition in which the blood is too acidic. It may be caused by severe illness or sepsis (bacteria in the bloodstream).
  • A disorder characterized by abnormally high acidity (high hydrogen-ion concentration) of the blood and other body tissues.
  • A pathologic condition of acid accumulation or depletion of base in the body. The two main types are respiratory acidosis and metabolic acidosis, due to metabolic acid build up.
  • A state due to excess retention of carbon dioxide in the body.
  • Acid base imbalance resulting from an accumulation of carbon dioxide secondary to hypoventilation.
  • Acidosis caused by accumulation of lactic acid more rapidly than it can be metabolized. It may occur spontaneously or in association with diseases such as diabetes mellitus, leukemia, or liver failure.
  • Acidosis caused by accumulation of lactic acid more rapidly than it can be metabolized; may occur spontaneously or in association with diseases such as diabetes mellitus, leukemia, or liver failure.
  • An abnormal increase in the acidity of the body's fluids
  • An abnormally high acidity (excess hydrogen-ion concentration) of the blood and other body tissues.
  • An abnormally high acidity of the blood and other body tissues. Acidosis can be either respiratory or metabolic.
  • Excess retention of carbon dioxide in the body resulting from ventilatory impairment.
  • Increased acidity in the blood secondary to acid base imbalance. Causes include diabetes, kidney failure and shock.
  • Metabolic acidosis characterized by the accumulation of lactate in the body. It is caused by tissue hypoxia.
  • Pathologic condition resulting from accumulation of acid or depletion of the alkaline reserve (bicarbonate) content of the blood and body tissues, and characterized by an increase in hydrogen ion concentration (decrease in ph).
  • Respiratory retention of carbon dioxide. It may be chronic or acute.
