Decreased fetal heart rate in antepartum

Misty Posted Tue 12th of January, 2016 18:05:07 PM

All I can find for this code is O76-Abnormality in fetal heart rate and rhythm complicating labor and delivery in ICD10, and ICD9-659.73-Abnormality in Fetal heart Rate or Rhythm Antepartum condition or complication. ICD10 code does not indicate that its antepartum. Can we still us O76? Thanks
