      2016 2017 2018 2019 Non-Billable/Non-Specific Code
    Type 2 Excludes
    • acute respiratory distress syndrome (J80)

    • complications of surgical and medical care NEC (T80-T88)
    • newborn respiratory distress syndrome (P22.0)
    Certain early complications of trauma, not elsewhere classified
Clinical Information
  • Severe systemic manifestation of trauma and ischemia involving soft tissues, principally skeletal muscle, due to prolonged severe crushing. It leads to increased permeability of the cell membrane and to the release of potassium, enzymes, and myoglobin from within cells. Ischemic renal dysfunction secondary to hypotension and diminished renal perfusion results in acute tubular necrosis and uremia.
