Presented on: Thursday, July 29, 2021 | 1–2:30 p.m. Eastern

Presented by: William E. Haik, MD, FCCP, CDIPFCS

You breathe in to get oxygen from the air into your blood. You breathe out to remove carbon dioxide. Just breathing—it’s a simple process so many of us take for granted.

The U.S. saw an estimated million-plus respiratory failure discharges in 2017, according to the Society of Critical Care Medicine. With complex clinical indicators, coding criteria, and various quality-of-care concerns related to respiratory failure, the diagnosis remains a challenge for CDI and coding professionals alike.

During this 90-minute webinar, trusted CDI expert William E. Haik, MD, FCCP, CDIP, will provide a detailed look at the diagnostic underpinnings necessary for CDI professionals to craft compliant queries. He’ll also review coding and claim conundrums, and examine concerns related to Patient Safety Indicators and other quality measures.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the essential elements of acute hypoxic and hypercapnic respiratory failure
  • Explain blood gas measurements and degrees of hypoxemia
  • Apply the P/F ratio to diagnose hypoxemic respiratory failure
  • Discuss the factors that distinguish an acute exacerbation of chronic respiratory failure
  • Identify and address the clinical and quality implications of coding postoperative respiratory failure and pulmonary insufficiency
  • Identify the clinical validation considerations for respiratory failure and the role of coding and CDI professionals
