ICD-10 Arrives

Co-blogger (and Medical Office Manager) Kelley B is working on an interesting ICD-10 post, but I couldn't resist blogging on some of the more ... esoteric ... examples:
■ Other Contact With Pig (W55.49X)

■ Problems in Relationship With In-Laws (Z63.1)
[Methinks this one will become a Top 10]

■ Sucked Into Jet Engine (V97.33X)
[That's gonna leave a mark!]

■ Prolonged Stay in Weightless Environment (X52.XXX)
[Really? How prevalent is this?]

■ Struck By Turkey (W61.42XA)
[Paging Les Nesman!]
Welcome to the brave new world of health care.
