I donâ€™t know how to handle this Health & Medical question and need guidance.
A high-risk pregnancy is a pregnancy where there are potential complications that could affect the mother, the baby or both. Â Research indicates that In the USA, high risk pregnancies can result in low birth rates in 8.2% of the 4.3 million babies born each year. Â A high risk pregnancy if not properly managed, can lead to serious complications, injury and even death.Â
High-risk pregnancy patients should be reported with a code from Category O09. Â Supervision of a high-risk pregnancy should be the first listed diagnosis.Â
Determine the coding terminology and definition of high-risk pregnancies.
Include ALL the following aspects in the discussion:
- List Â Â Â Â Â 3-5 of the causes of a high risk pregnancy.
- Identify Â Â Â Â Â a high risk pregnancy code.
- Discuss Â Â Â Â Â the condition associated with the code.Â
