R58: Haemorrhage, not elsewhere classified
You are bleeding.
Blood supplies oxygen and nutrients to the tissue in the body.
Only losing a little blood does not often cause any symptoms. However, losing a lot of blood causes you to have low blood pressure, for example. It is then possible for you to get dizzy or see black dots before your eyes. You can also look pale.
On medical documents, the ICD code is often appended by letters that indicate the diagnostic certainty or the affected side of the body.
- G: Confirmed diagnosis
- V: Tentative diagnosis
- Z: Condition after
- A: Excluded diagnosis
- L: Left
- R: Right
- B: Both sides
