Chapter XIX
Injury, poisoning and certain other consequences of external causes - S00-T98


Excludes

:
  • birth trauma ( P10-P15 )
  • obstetric trauma (O70-O71)

    This chapter contains the following blocks:

    The chapter uses the S-section for coding different types of injuries related to single body regions and the T-section to cover injuries to multiple or unspecified body regions as well as poisoning and certain other consequences of external causes.
    Where multiple sites of injury are specified in the titles, the word "with" indicates involvement of both sites, and the word "and" indicates involvement of either or both sites.
    The principle of multiple coding of injuries should be followed wherever possible. Combination categories for multiple injuries are provided for use when there is insufficient detail as to the nature of the individual conditions, or for primary tabulation purposes when it is more convenient to record a single code; otherwise, the component injuries should be coded separately. Reference should also be made to the morbidity or mortality coding rules and guidelines in Volume 2.
    The blocks of the S-section as well as T00-T14 and T90-T98 contain injuries at the three-character level classified by type as follows:
