icd-10 code for vacuumn assisted delivery?

Susan Posted Fri 16th of October, 2015 16:35:43 PM

O66.5 states "attempted vacuum" and also states with subsequent delivery by forceps or C-section. Is this the only code for a vacuum delivery? Can I use this for a successful delivery/

Well, yes, as it is mentioned that code is applicable for the subsequent delivery by forceps or cesarean delivery. So, you can use this code for vacuum delivery. Hope it helps!
