Hypoxia of brain due to non-compliance with CPAP due to OSA

    Hello,

    Could I please get guidance on-

    Hypoxia of brain due to noncompliance with CPAP for OSA mentioned in an outpatient note using ICD-9 codes.

    [Other diagnoses mentioned in the assessment are COPD (496), Chronic respiratory failure (518.83) due to COPD and Obstructive sleep apnea (327.23).]

     

    Since this is an outpatient record, I do not know if ICD-9 code 348.1 would be appropriate to code the condition.

    (Please note that this will be coded using ICD-9 coding guidelines.)

    Thank you,
    Anjali
