A type 2 excludes note represents "not included here". A type 2 excludes note indicates that the condition excluded is not part of the condition it is excluded from but a patient may have both conditions at the same time. When a type 2 excludes note appears under a code it is acceptable to use both the code (I26) and the excluded code together.

Clinical Information
  • A pulmonary embolism is a sudden blockage in a lung artery. The cause is usually a blood clot in the leg called a deep vein thrombosis that breaks loose and travels through the bloodstream to the lung. Pulmonary embolism is a serious condition that can cause
    • permanent damage to the affected lung
    • low oxygen levels in your blood
    • damage to other organs in your body from not getting enough oxygen
    if a clot is large, or if there are many clots, pulmonary embolism can cause death. Half the people who have pulmonary embolism have no symptoms. If you do have symptoms, they can include shortness of breath, chest pain or coughing up blood. Symptoms of a blood clot include warmth, swelling, pain, tenderness and redness of the leg. The goal of treatment is to break up clots and help keep other clots from forming.
  • Blocking of the pulmonary artery or one of its branches by an embolus.
  • The closure of the pulmonary artery or one of its branches by an embolus, sometimes associated with infarction of the lung.
  • The obstruction of the pulmonary artery or one of its branches by an embolus, sometimes associated with infarction of the lung.
