Their is a very frequently coded ICD 10 code in respiratory system. This disease is very dangerous can lead to death as well. I am talking about Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Also, there are multiple combination codes with ICD 10 code for COPD in diagnosis coding. For ICD 10 medical coders, it is very important to know about the COPD icd 10 and related codes. Most of the times the medical coders make errors while coding a combination code of asthma with COPD, bronchitis with COPD or COPD with or without exacerbation.
