This article outlines the symptoms, diagnosis, treatments and ICD 10 CM codes for Neutropenia.
Neutropenia ICD 10 Symptoms
Neutropenia ICD 10 itself does not cause symptoms. Numerous factors can cause the destruction of neutropenia ICD 10 by reducing the production or abnormal storage of neutrophils. Cancer chemotherapy is the most common cause of neutropensia. Chemotherapy can not only kill cancer cells, but also destroy neutrophilic and other healthy cells.
In some cases, people experience neutropenia ICD 10 when they have a blood test done for unrelated reasons. The patient might have other symptoms, such as an infection, or underlying problems that may cause the condition. Neutropenia ICD 10 can also be seen as an expected outcome of chemotherapy to treat cancer.
Infection can occur as a complication of neutropenia ICD 10 . It can occur in mucous membranes, such as inside the mouth or on the skin. It can occur as an ulcer, abscess, build-up of pus, rash or wound that takes a long time to heal. Fever is the most common symptom of infection. In neutrophobia, it is common not to determine the exact cause, but normal gut bacteria can find their way into the blood and weaken the barrier.
The risk of serious infection increases when the number of neutrophils decreases and the duration of severe neutropenia ICD 10 becomes longer. Neutropenic fever can be treated with antibiotics if a source of infection is not identified. This is important because a weakened immune system means the patient is ill for longer.
In some cases, such as those suspected of certain diseases, doctors may want to test bone marrow. The most common test is a simple blood test known as a complete blood count.
Neutropenia ICD 10 Diagnosis
In order to diagnose neutropenia ICD 10, the provider will need to arrange regular blood tests to investigate neutropenia ICD 10 and other blood-related side effects of chemotherapy. Some people feel tired when they have neutropensia. People can find out through a blood test that they have the disease if they get an infection. Neutropenia ICD 10 alone does not cause symptoms.
Neutropenia ICD 10 Treatments
After diagnosing Neutropenia ICD 10, treatment can be provided. Treatment for Neutropenia ICD 10 is called a granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF). This is used for various types of neutropenia ICD 10, including those with low white cell counts, as well as for chemotherapy. GCSF stimulates the bone marrow to produce more white blood cells. With neutropenic fever, it is assumed that infection is the cause of the fever, but the source cannot be found.
Stem cell transplants are useful to treat some types of serious neutropenia ID 10, including those caused by bone marrow problems. Granulocytes and white blood cell transfusions are rare. Medicinal changes are possible in drug-induced neutropensia. Treatments can be life-saving in some cases.
People that are diagnosed with neutropenia ICD 10 must take special measures to prevent infection. These include:
- good hygiene, including frequent hand washing
- good dental hygiene such as regular brushing and flossing
- avoiding contact with sick people
- wearing shoes
- cleaning cuts and scratches and covering with bandages
- using an electric razor
- avoiding animal waste where possible
- changing nappies for infants
- avoiding unpasteurized dairy products
- uncooked meat
- raw fruits and vegetables
- cereals, nuts and honey
- staying away from hot tubs, ponds and rivers
