493.10 - Intrinsic asthma, unspecified is a topic covered in the ICD-10-CM.
It is characterized by spasmodic contraction of airway smooth muscle, wheezing, and dyspnea (dyspnea, paroxysmal). Asthma is a chronic disease that affects your airways. Your airways are tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs. If you have asthma, the inside walls of your airways become sore and swollen.
A chronic respiratory disease manifested as difficulty breathing due to the narrowing of bronchial passageways. A form of bronchial disorder with three distinct components: airway hyper-responsiveness (respiratory hypersensitivity), airway inflammation, and intermittent airway obstruction.
Symptoms include wheezing, coughing, tightness in the chest, shortness of breath, and rapid breathing. An attack may be brought on by pet hair, dust, smoke, pollen, mold, exercise, cold air, or stress. A chronic respiratory disease manifested as difficulty breathing due to the narrowing of bronchial passageways.
Asthma causes symptoms like shortness of breath, wheezing, coughing or chest tightness. Severity differs in each person.
Apart from knowing the symptoms and doing a lung physical examination the physician will also do few test measures like X-ray, spirometry, allergy testing, nitric oxide breath test or peak flow to determine the type of asthma and it’s severity. Hence a coder should definitely pay attention to these areas as well.
Asthma exacerbation: – It is nothing but an acute increase of symptoms in a person with asthma. This can be coded only with the Physician diagnosis. Status asthmatics : – Another term for this is severe asthma exacerbation. It is considered as severe as this may lead to even respiratory failure due to hypoxemia.
What happens to our Lungs (Center of respiratory system)during asthma attack: During asthma attack, muscles around the airway gets tighten and the lining inside the airways becomes swollen and produce extra mucus. This makes airway to become narrow and partially block airflow in and out of air sacs.
This type of asthma occurs more than 2 times in a week with regular breathing difficulties to an extent of disturbing daily activities. Moderate persistent. These patients suffer from symptoms daily and last for several days. Severe persistent.
Their symptoms may completely disappear after few years. Experts say this may be due to the growth of airways along with body growth. Cough variant. It is so called because of the main symptom, dry cough. Mild intermittent.
Asthma is a chronic disease, means it does not have a complete cure. Hence people with asthma should learn to live with it. Though it cannot be cured completely, symptoms can be reduced if we give proper care and treat on time.
