Dehydration has been earlier defined as when the body loses more fluid than it is gaining. This could result in the impairment of normal body function.

Dehydration is a common condition during pregnancy, and it is usually mild. However, severe forms can also be diagnosed, putting the mother and baby in danger.

Symptoms include thirst, dryness of the mouth and throat, reduced urination, and Braxton hicks contraction can be experienced due to dehydration. In severe cases, there could be dizziness and confusion, changes in the pattern of movement by the baby.

How To Code Heat Exhaustion With Dehydration

The following information will enable you to understand how to code heat exhaustion with dehydration using ICD 10 & 11.

What Is Heat Exhaustion With Dehydration?

Heat exhaustion follows an episode of dehydration, the body mechanism of regulating internal body temperature is impaired. However, it is not life-threatening. Exercise and hot weather conditions could also play a role in heat exhaustion.

Normally excess heat is gotten rid of the body through the pumping of blood to the skin surface, producing sweats, sweats as a cooling effect on the skin.

But If the body is in a state of dehydration, there is a deficit of water and essential electrolytes essential for the formation of sweats; hence sweats are not produced, and a form of heat exhaustion is experienced. Signs include: 

  • weak rapid pulse
  • excessive sweating
  • increased internal body temperature
  • muscle weakness or cramps
  • headache
  • dizziness

If heat exhaustion is left untreated, complications like heat stroke could emanate, brain damage, organ failure, etc. Treatment is simply fluid therapy.

The following information will enable you to understand how to code salmonella with dehydration using ICD 10 & 11.

What Is Salmonella With Dehydration?

Salmonella is a bacteria causing food poisoning, which could lead to an infection of the intestine known as gastroenteritis. It manifests as diarrhea, vomiting, fever, and stomach cramps, leading to dehydration.

There could be a need for medical attention. If left untreated, complications may arise when there is a spread of infection beyond the intestines.

Transmission is simply by eating contaminated food, treatment is fluid therapy to prevent dehydration, and antibiotics are rarely needed in people with a higher risk of developing complications.

The following information will enable you to understand how to code hypernatremic dehydration using ICD 10 & 11.

What Is Hypernatremic Dehydration?

It is characterized by an elevation in serum sodium concentration  150mmol/l. It occurs due to an imbalance between sodium and water in the blood.

It could occur as a result of excess sodium with less water due to loss from diarrhea, vomiting, and diuretic use leading to dehydration. 

Hypernatremic Dehydration ICD 10 Code

Hypernatremic dehydration ICD 10 is coded with E87.0 hyperosmolar and hypernatremia which is a billable code, located in chapter IV Endocrine, nutritional and metabolic diseases E00-E89,

What Is Syncope Due To Dehydration?

It could also be referred to as vasovagal syncope, the most common type of syncope occurring in one-third of the population, which is often triggered by dehydration and upright posture. However, it is usually not harmful.

In a state of dehydration when the blood volume is reduced, or in a condition where blood is being pulled to the leg, which could result in a drop in the blood pressure.

There could be a reduction of blood getting to the brain. There could be a transient loss of consciousness. But when such a person falls or lies down, blood flow to the brain is restored.
