november 7, 2018 News 0

On 18 June 2018, 18 years after the launch of ICD-10, WHO released a version of ICD-11 to allow Member States time to plan implementation. This is anticipating the presentation of ICD-11 to the World Health Assembly in 2019 for adoption by countries. Over a decade in the making, this version is a vast improvement on ICD-10.

ICD-11  is great news for CVS-patients, as CVS is finally recognized in the international classification of diseases.

ICD-11 is built up like this:

  • 01 Certain infectious or parasitic diseases
  • 02 Neoplasms 
  • 03 Diseases of the blood or blood-forming organs 
  • 04 Diseases of the immune system 
  • 05 Endocrine, nutritional or metabolic diseases 
  • 06 Mental, behavioural or neurodevelopmental disorders 
  • 07 Sleep-wake disorders 
  • 08 Diseases of the nervous system 
  • 09 Diseases of the visual system 
  • 10 Diseases of the ear or mastoid process 
  • 11 Diseases of the circulatory system 
  • 12 Diseases of the respiratory system 
  • 13 Diseases of the digestive system 
  • 14 Diseases of the skin 
  • 15 Diseases of the musculoskeletal system or connective tissue 
  • 16 Diseases of the genitourinary system 
  • 17 Conditions related to sexual health 
  • 18 Pregnancy, childbirth or the puerperium 
  • 19 Certain conditions originating in the perinatal period 
  • 20 Developmental anomalies 
  • 21 Symptoms, signs or clinical findings, not elsewhere classified 
  • 22 Injury, poisoning or certain other consequences of external causes 
  • 23 External causes of morbidity or mortality 
  • 24 Factors influencing health status or contact with health services 
  • 25 Codes for special purposes
