Medical Coding Training — Cancer Codes in ICD 9
Medical Coding Training — Cancer Codes in ICD 9 http://go.cco.us/icd-9-cm-mini-course-yt Okay so someone had wanted to review cancer codes and ICD 9? And I've had a hard time picking which one to use, benign, malignant or not specified Alicia: . So... and what I did was I just did kind of a basics in cancer coding. So metastatic means that it's moved. So you know, think M -- move, M -- metastatic. The cancer has moved from one place to another so that's usually from one organ to another. So we've got like breast cancer has metastasized to the lung and the cancer started in the breast and now it's moved to the lung. So when people talk about that, they'll say the first cancer or the primary cancer. So common metastatic sites are lymph nodes, bone, lungs and brain. So in other words, if a person has cancer and they're going to get a secondary cancer... in other words, it's going to move somewhere else in the body, it usually goes to the lymph nodes, bone, lungs and brain. And actually, when you think about cancer, I used to tell my students, cancer is just cells that are not growing normally anymore, cells growing a certain way. But when they're not growing normally, they mutate. So let's say if for example, you say your cell is a circle and then it's reproducing itself. But then all of a sudden, one produces it as a square. Okay well, it doesn't line up and work with the other cells because it's a square. So... and that's fine. That would be you know, benign cancer. But when all of those square cells start deciding to reproduce themselves instead of making circle squares... circles, they're making squares... then that's cancer. And then once those cancer cells learn how to do that, they start teaching other cells how to do that and that's how it spreads. So if a person has metastatic cancer, both sites need to be coded. When there's documentation for a primary or a secondary cancer but the site is not indicated, you use this magic little default code for cancer which is 199.1. And that code indicates that there is another cancer, whether primary or secondary but you don't know what it is. And you'll see terminology like that that will state you know, metastatic cancer to the lung. Okay well that means that's a second cancer, moved to the lung. But where did it come from? I don't know. I don't have any documentation on that. So it would be 199.1. And if you reverse that and say you know, she has breast cancer and it has metastasized. Okay so you can code the breast cancer. Where did it go? I don't know. There's no documentation. 199.1 takes care of that. So that's your default code when you don't know and it works for primary or secondary. So if we scroll down a little bit more... so plain English, use this code for malignant neoplasms of an unspecified site, both primary and secondary. It goes both ways. So what is benign? The term benign refers to a condition that's a tumor or growth that is not cancer. So you got all those little circle cells and all of a sudden, they may...you've got like 3 square cells. Well, they're not doing anything but you know, they may go ahead and remove it and check and make sure it's not trying to replicate itself. But if it doesn't then it's considered benign. It's a tumor, it may be something that someone doesn't want or causes problems. That's another thing. Just because it's benign doesn't mean it's going to cause problems. It just means that it's not going to spread someplace. But it can still bother other tissue. So in general, benign tumor grows slowly and is not harmful. However, in some cases, you have benign tumors that grow big enough to be found near blood vessels or in the brain or the nerve or different organs that need to be removed because they're causing a problem... because there cells don't need to be there or their size is hindering some function of that organ. They're not metastatic. They're not trying to teach other little cells to be like them. They are just in the way, more or less, so they'll be removed. That's the difference between benign and malignant. You want to make sure you know whether it's benign or malignant. And most physicians are very good about documentation and they'll say benign tumor of the breast or malignant mass in the lung. You know, so... but you can't code one way or the other unless you have a definitive diagnosis. So you need to make sure you find out from your provider which one it is.

The patient is being admitted to home health for administration of IV medications to treat the anemia in the home. The kidney was previously removed; however, the cancer is also still being actively treated. Coded: M1021 a. Malignant neoplasm of right kidney: C64.1 M1023 b. Anemia in neoplastic disease: D63.0 M1023 c. Encounter for adjustment and management of vascular access device: Z45.2 M1023 d. Acquired absence of kidney: Z90.5 Rationale: The primary focus of home health will be the anemia; however, coding guidelines instruct that if the anemia is due to cancer, the specific neoplasm should be coded first. This is followed by the anemia. Because the patient will be receiving IV therapy in the home, attention to the VAD is coded next. Lastly this is followed by the status of the removed kidney as this will likely impact the patient’s POC. ************************************ More about Our Company: http://ppsplus.com/about-us/ Master ICD-10 coding and all home health topics: http://ppsplus.com/what-we-do/education/ PPS Plus is headquartered in Biloxi, Mississippi. ************************************ PPS Plus provides the perfect solution for maximizing your reimbursement potential, growing your business and providing your patients with better care.

Wound was healing normally upon return home and was coded as such. Two weeks post-op he fell getting out of bed and a small area of the wound dehisced. After a couple of days the wound began to have purulent drainage and patient developed fever which the nurse reported to the MD. Patient was readmitted to the hospital and is being discharged home on antibiotics via PICC and wet to dry dressing changes. ANSWER M1020a – Dehiscence of amputation stump – T87.81 M1022b – Infection of left lower extremity amputation stump – T87.44 M1022c – Type 2 diabetes mellitus with diabetic peripheral angiopathy without gangrene – E11.51 M1022d – Fitting and adjustment of vascular catheter – Z45.2 M1022e – Long term use of Antibiotics – Z79.2 Rationale: Complications of planned amputations have their own codes and since one code does not cover both the dehiscence and the infection, both T87.81 and T87.4- codes are necessary. Diabetes with the PVD was the causal factor for the amputation and should be coded as both have the potential for aggravating the patient’s condition even further. Usually IV antibiotics administered for the treatment of the infection is a long-term regimen and is coded as is the route since the clinician will be doing PICC line care. ************************************ More about Our Company: http://ppsplus.com/about-us/ Master ICD-10 coding and all home health topics: http://ppsplus.com/what-we-do/education/ PPS Plus is headquartered in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Detection of Lung Cancer using Sputum Image Segmentation
Lung cancer is acknowledged to be the fundamental driver of disease passing worldwide, and it is difficult to detect in its early stages because symptoms appear only in the advanced stages causing the mortality rate to be the highest among all other types of cancer. The early detection of cancer can be helpful in curing disease completely. This research paper summarizes various reviews and technical articles on Lung cancer detection using the data mining techniques to enhance the Lung cancer diagnosis and prognosis and also deals with K Means image segmentation technique in MATLAB. With the help of different aspects of Nuclei of sputum images, such as size, shape, and area , Lung cancer can be detected by it. This report includes the survey of different techniques such as threshold classifier, a Bayesian classification , Fuzzy C Means and propose a method which uses the concept of k means algorithm. K Means algorithm is used to segment the sputum image into Nuclei,Cytoplasm and Debris Cells.

Medical Coding Training — Chemotherapy Coding
Medical Coding Training — Chemotherapy Coding http://www.cco.us/cco-yt Alicia: Oh, chemotherapy coding. How exciting. They actually had a question, I think, if you click on that first, I think there was... I'm having trouble with the sample test question. Okay, it says, "Dr. Aaron, an oncologist completed a consult for Sarah who has metastatic malignant melanoma in the anterior stomach wall. At this time, the primary site is unknown and the testing will continue during treatment. Today, Sarah started chemotherapy. Treatments with what diagnosis code would Dr. Aaron report for today's treatment?" Okay, scroll down. The answer key is stating the correct answer is D. My questioner... "Confusing is when I see the coding guideline note under V58.11 where it states 'patient's admission is solely for the administration of chemotherapy, assign V58.00' which, by the way, that's not correct. 'Encounter for radiation therapy or V58.11, etc.' Therefore, I would not have chosen D because Sarah is starting chemotherapy treatments on this visit. There was no mention of radiation. I chose A because the coding guideline note. How do I see this clear. Okay so what I did was I broke it down. There's... when you go to that section with the V codes for chemotherapy, there's 3 main types of treatment that you're getting for your cancer when they come in. The V codes is... if they're getting radiation which is V58.0, that's where the person who asked the question made the error. V58.0 is actually for radiation therapy, not chemotherapy. And then V58.11 is the encounter for antineoplastic chemotherapy and then V58.12 is the encounter for antineoplastic immunotherapy. So this code will be used first for every encounter, followed by the cancer code. I'll have to scroll down. Even if the patient has a complication from the chemo in the guidelines state that the V codes go first. So when you read the guidelines that are around these codes, it tells you that the V code goes first followed by cancer diagnosis then what the patient is suffering from. It's common for when the person has chemotherapy for them to get nausea and vomiting and dehydrated after their chemotherapy. So when a patient is admitted for chemotherapy and then develops one of these complications, you still code the therapy first. So keep that in mind. Your V codes are always going to go first. So we have an example where a patient who's admitted for chemotherapy, for plasma cell leukemia. It's going to be V58.11 because they're getting chemotherapy, not radiation or that immunotherapy and their cancer's coded 203.10. Now our next person, Betty, was admitted for chemotherapy for giant cell leukemia and after her treatment was finished, she developed nausea and vomiting that was not relieved. So she was treated for the nausea and vomiting. So for that encounter, you're going to still do the V58.11. Even though she had the nausea and vomiting, it's still V58.11. The cancer's 207.20 and then the nausea and vomiting is 787.01. So there's no reason ever not to put that V code first. Now some people don't know what these terms were so I pulled these off from Find the Code that has the definitions of them. Antineoplastic... what that just means is that they're giving you... that's a medication that's used to take care of the malignant cells. And then the chemotherapy, the definition for that is... oh, it's on the next page of it because it was so big. The treatment of disease by chemical agents originally applied to use of chemicals that affected the caustic organism unfavorably but do not harm the patient. And of course, they usually just say chemo. You won't see chemotherapy but it is a therapy that they're doing. So if you go back to his question... oh no, are we able to go back? He's... if you just eyeball that real quick, she got chemotherapy. So it would be V58.11 because we know that chemotherapy is what they got and that's the code, V58.11 and it goes first.

2 Abstracting
An abstract is a record that contains information about each patient from the time of diagnosis and continuing throughout his or her life. The abstract includes patient data about demographics, diagnostic studies, cancer staging, treatment, and follow-up. When they create and update abstracts, cancer registrars must follow abstracting rules set by their individual state central registries. Hospitals that are accredited through the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer (ACoS/CoC) also follow ACoS/CoC abstracting rules and standards. Cancer registries transmit abstract data to their state’s cancer registry and, if the facility is ACoS/CoC-accredited, to the National Cancer Data Base (NCDB).

Medical Coding ICD-9 Coding History Codes and Cancer

Go to http://www.codingcertification.org History Codes and Cancer. Yes, I like this because this is something that it seems like every student asks about so I've explained it so many times I just wait for them to ask. Someone asked via the last session I believe on V58.11 or V10.3 had seen it on commentator on Amazon pointed out that one cannot code these two codes together and then they had looked up both codes and can't see why they can't be coded together. Well, this is real easy, Marty is the one that had asked us. It is true you cannot code these two codes together because when you look up V10.3 and you read the guidelines of the history code it states for example: a code for breast cancer cannot be used a history of breast cancer if the person is getting treatment for breast cancer. Therefore if you are going to use V10.3 that means its a history, they had breast cancer they are no longer getting treatment, unlike V58.11 which is a chemotherapy code. and treatment for their cancer and therefore a history code is not applicable keep that in mind, and even on your code books its a good idea to write treatment for their cancer. Good idea to write maybe next to your history code "no longer getting treatment. I believe that even if primary and secondary cancer, lets say your patient had breast cancer, is no longer getting treatment for that breast cancer they had that ten years ago and then a year ago they found they have lung cancer, that is a secondary cancer to the breast cancer and you no longer can use the history code. Isn't that right Laureen? (Laureen: Yes) So, if you are getting treatment for any cancer after or during the time that you have cancer, history code does not apply. So make sure you make a note right next to your V code on that. Laureen: Alright, thank you. Get more cpc exam tips, coding certification training and ceu credits.

Oncology Coding Question  — Proper Way to Code Infusion of Herceptin
Oncology Coding Question — Proper Way to Code Infusion of Herceptin http://www.cco.us/cco-yt One of the students that we have right now actually posted this on the forum. The forum that we have is a great place for you guys to post some questions that we pull for the webinar. There's professionals on there as well as students so your question will benefit other people. She said, "I need clarification on the proper way to code for infusion of a drug Herceptin, J3955, 96413 which are CPT codes for 1 hour and 30 minutes of infusion. The diagnosis is breast cancer and the scenario is: "The reason for the encounter is for infusion of the Herceptin drug for a one-time visit." The second scenario, the reason for the encounter is for the infusion of the Herceptin drug for a series of visits. So you have the same thing going on, the difference is you've got a one-time visit and you've got a series of visits. So should the diagnosis be and those V codes, the V58.11 is actually a code for coming in often? The 174.9 is the cancer code, if you didn't know. So if you can eyeball that, what do you think? What would you say would be the code if you didn't really know the answer, you're just going to give it the old hairy eyeball? Laureen: The poll's going on and I'm just going to go to the next slide where I actually have the code definitions. Boyd: Okay, let's see... we've got... over half voted so far. A little slower on this. People are thinking about it. Alicia: Doesn't help if you don't have your code books in front of you. Boyd: So I'm going to close the poll in a few seconds here. Laureen: Yes so V58.11 is encounter for anti-neoplastic chemo, the 174.9 is the unspecified breast cancer and the V58.69 is long-term current use of other medications. Boyd: Okay, I'm going to close it. Alicia: I didn't think to have that put up there. That's a good idea. We should have thought of that. Boyd: Okay, closing the poll here in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Laureen: Alright, let's see what they said. Alicia: Interesting. Laureen: Okay. So 34% said A, 23% said B, and 44% said C. So let's see what Alicia says. Alicia: Well, I can tell you, I understand what the thought process was behind putting the cancer code first. But in actuality, the patient is not coming in for the cancer. They're coming to their visit to have an infusion. So that's going to be your first code. So that should have been a heads up to not put the cancert code first. So here we go. We've got an IV infusion of chemotherapy which is that's what the medication that we gave you was for one hour and 30 minutes. Now your CPT codes are going to be your 96413 for the first hour and then the 96415 is actually an add on code and that's for the remaining 30 minutes. Now you want to make sure that your documentation is going to support 1 hour and 30 minutes and not any less than that or you won't be able to use that add on code. Okay now your diagnosis, the answer is V58.11 and the cancer code 174.9. And the rationale behind that is... I may have to scroll down just a tad bit on my screen, I think. Okay, here we go. First of all, that Herceptin is a monoclonal antibody and is also classified as an atinoplasty. If the patient is encountering medical services for the purposes of the receiving this chemotherapy, you're always going to use the V58.11 first and then the actual cancer diagnosis. So when you come to a question like this on your board exam then that's what you're thinking, they're not there for the cancer. They're for the infusion of the chemotherapy. That's why it's the first listed diagnosis. Okay so now you go on to say, I will not use the V58.69 as it's more... actually intended for a long term use of medications. I think, at the top of my head, long-term insulin use is like V58.6, maybe 7, something like that. So think of it like that. Generally administered by the patient, but not always. So this is not being doing. This is actually being done at a facility so you're going to use... that's not the reason why it's a separate code. But that's why V58.6 isn't the proper code. So your V58.11, more closely describes what's going on at the moment. You do not put the 174.9 in the front of the V58.11. They're not there for the breast cancer. They're there for the chemotherapy. Now what's going to help you is if you always think about the reason why the insurance company would be paying for that moment in time. Another thing, chemotherapy is most likely always going to be a series of treatments. So you would still use the V58.11 for every encounter of the chemotherapy throughout the series of treatments.

Profile: Cancer Genetic Research and Treatment | Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
The Profile research study is creating one of the largest databases of genetic abnormalities in cancer. More than 15,000 tumor samples have been genetically sequenced and the results are beginning to shed more light on just what makes certain cancers tick. In this video, scientists show how genetic testing in cancer happens -- from tumor sample collection to data analysis -- and talk about the promise that the technology holds for cancer research and care. More information about Profile — a collaboration between Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Boston Children's Hospital — is at Http://www.dana-farber.org/Profile. Transcription: Speaker 1: Just dropping off some specimens. Speaker 2: Thank you. Reporter: It’s here in the pathology lab where tumor samples are brought in for testing. The samples are from cancer patients who have consented to be part of the Profile Project, a large research study to help speed the development of personalized cancer care with precision treatments. Dr. William Hahn is the deputy chief scientific officer at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. He helps lead the joint project with Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Boston Children’s Hospital. Dr. Hahn: We’re really excited about it, because it really represents our first foray into using molecular techniques to understand cancers, rather than anatomical criteria, and that means that all of the knowledge we’ve learned over the last 30 or 40 years about what makes cancers tick, we can now try to get at the basis of that within the DNA of a tumor. Reporter: To get the DNA, technologists isolate a sample from the tumor, and then it’s put on a slide to be checked by pathologists for quality. Dr. Neil Lindeman is the direct of the Center for Advanced Molecular Diagnostics at Brigham and Women’s Hospital where the tumor samples are then processed. Dr. Lindeman: What we’re trying to do is we’re trying to understand the genetic causes of cancers—what genes specifically are causing what cancer and how it behaves in each patient, one at at a time. And we’re using a very sophisticated and high-throughput technology that enables us to test for a lot of different changes—hundreds at once—in a lot of different patients. Reporter: That sophisticated technology allows scientists to scan tumor DNA for cancer-related abnormalities in more than 300 genes. Dr. Lindeman: This is the instrument that we use to fragment DNA… Reporter: One of the first steps in the process is breaking up the DNA into small fragments using a sonicator. Dr. Lindeman: To the principle of sonication is sound waves—ultrasound—setting up vibrations that sheer the DNA, and by tuning the sonicator to the right frequency, you can generate fragments that are roughly equal size. Reporter: Those DNA fragments are then placed into a sequencer, which uses light signals and a computer to read each letter of the DNA code and look for cancer-related changes. Dr. Hahn: What modern sequencers do is instead of doing this in a one-base-at-a-time linear manner, they sequence thousands or hundreds of thousands of pieces of DNA in a parallel manner, and then we reassemble all of that data to come up with the overall sequence. So, one way to think about this is instead of doing things one after another after another, we’re doing a million processes all at once and then taking that data and combining it at the end. Reporter: With the sequencing complete, the data are interpreted by a team of cancer investigators. The goal is to identify the specific cause of the patient’s cancer and then determine which treatment will be the most effective. Now that the project has logged more than 5,000 tumor profiles, researchers are starting to look for leads to new cancer discoveries. Dr. Lindeman: Well, I’d like to see this being done for everybody routinely continuing, and I’d like to see this transition from being a research project to a clinical project. I think results should be available in the medical record, and physicians taking care of patients should be able to see these results and act on them. Dr. Hahn: So, in the past, when we’ve looked at cancers using the best tools that we had, it was largely looking at a black box. We could discern the edges and feel a little bit about what it was that cancer might be, but we had know way of comprehensively interrogating exactly what makes up cancer. This is the first step to being able to take away that black box and really understand what it is that makes a cancer tick.

Liquid bone that flows like toothpaste and cancer diagnosis at the speed of light are just some of t
(8 Dec 2008) HEADLINE:Expo showcases medical advances CAPTION:Liquid bone that flows like toothpaste and cancer diagnosis at the speed of light are just some of the latest innovations expected to revolutionize medical treatment. (Dec. 3) [Notes:ANCHOR VOICE] NB. THIS IS A VOICEOVER TRANSCRIPT, NOT A FULL SHOT LIST. Inventors in the UK are shining a new light on innovative medicine. Literally. From blue light plaque detectors to optical scanners that can detect cancerous tissue, the advances on display here could one day change the way disease is diagnosed. For breast cancer patients, this device could be a life saver. By enabling surgeons to scan the lymph nodes for signs of cancer, it allows for more accurate detection of spreading cancer cells. [Notes:Mohammed Keshtgar, Consultant Surgical Oncologist, Royal Free Hospital London] "WE HAVE DESIGNED AND DEVELOPED THIS OPTICAL SCANNER THAT ACTUALLY SCANS THE WHOLE SURFACE OF THE LYMPH GLAND AND THE SIGNAL WE GET FROM CANCER IS DIFFERENT FROM THE SIGNAL WE GET FROM NON-CANCER. IF I GET THAT INFORMATION IN THE OPERATING ROOM THEN I CAN DESIGN MY SURGERY AND THOSE PATIENTS WHO HAVE GOT A PROBLEM IN THEIR LYMPH GLANDS I CAN MAKE A MORE EXTENSIVE OPERATION AND SAVE THOSE PATIENTS WHO DO NOT REQUIRE IT". Another innovation could help reduce the invasive surgery required for bone grafts. [Notes:SOT: Professor Kevin Shakesheff, University of Nottingham. B-Roll of demonstratioon will cover lengthy sot] " WE COUPLE THE TWO SYRINGES TOGETHER AND THEN WE ADD THE LIQUID INTO THE POWDER. OK? SO THE NEXT STAGE THEN IS TO ADD THE NEEDLE WHICH YOU'RE GOING TO INJECT INTO THE BODY WITH, AND AT THAT STAGE WE ARE READY TO INJECT INTO A CAVITY. HERE WE HAVE SOMETHING THAT LOOKS LIKE FOAM AND WE CAN INJECT IT IN". "THE MATERIAL WILL HARDEN SPONTANEOUSLY AT BODY TEMPERATURE AND OVER A PERIOD OF ABOUT FIFTEEN MINUTES IT WILL CONVERT FROM THIS TOOTHPASTE FOAM-LIKE MATERIAL INTO A VERY HARD MATERIAL, WHICH IS AS HARD AS HUMAN BONE. NOW AT THAT STAGE NEW BONE TISSUE AND NEW STEM CELLS WILL MIGRATE INTO THAT SITE AND THE POLYMER IS BIODEGRADABLE SO OVER A SIX MONTH PERIOD THE POLYMER WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE BODY AND THE SITE WILL BE COMPLETELY REGENERATED WITH HEALTHY FUNCTIONAL BONE TISSUE". Not all the devices on show are intended for the operating room. This device uses blue light to reveal hidden plaque on teeth. Specially coated glasses are required to have the plaque show up in red. But its inventors hope to eliminate the need for glasses by incorporating filters into bathroom mirrors.

Top Documentary Films: Curing Cancer Full Film
CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES Top Documentary Films: Curing Cancer Full Film Getting diagnosed with cancer is a very scary thing. Even though treatment for the disease has come a long way in the last 50 years, it is still one of the deadliest diseases humans face. One of the first choices they have to make is how they want to treat it when patients are diagnosed of cancer. They work with their doctors to determine the best way to beat the disease. Here is a guide to cancer treatments such as breast, lung and prostate cancer treatment. Chemotherapy Chemotherapy is one of the most important medical developments of the last century. It is one of the most popular lung, bone and prostate cancer treatments. During these treatments, patients are hooked up to an IV that delivers poisonous chemicals into their bloodstreams. This poison will hopefully cure the disease by killing the cancer cells with its toxicity. That same poison also kills healthy cells in patients. That is why patients receiving chemotherapy get so sick, lose their hair and feel pain while they are undergoing treatment. Radiation Therapy Radiation therapy works on the same basic principle as chemotherapy. It uses a harmful thing, in this case radiation, in the hopes of killing the tumor without harming the patient too greatly. Doctors use radiation-emitting devices to target radiation directly at the spot where the tumor is. The radiation will kill the cancer cells, but it also will kill healthy cells. This leads to many of the same horrible side effects that chemotherapy patients suffer, including vomiting, lack of energy and weakness. Also, radiation can only be used if the disease is localized to one area of the body. Radiation therapy is ineffective to cure cancer if it has spread at all. Surgery This is another popular form of treatment. It is a good option when the patient has a tumor that has not spread beyond one area of the body. Doctors cut into the body to remove the tumor. This procedure carries the risks that all surgeries do, but it does not lead to the horrible side effects that chemotherapy and radiation therapy cause. Treatment with Nutrition Cancer can both be prevented and treated with a healthy diet. There are substances in many foods called antioxidants. These antioxidants are very effective at eliminating rogue cells in the body. Rogue cells are abnormal cells that do not belong in the body, which includes cancer cells. There are many foods that are very high in antioxidants. These foods include blueberries, pomegranates, beans, cranberries, blackberries, apples, pecans, strawberries and prunes. Though they can't always cure cancer, they almost always help in the fight to beat the affliction. These antioxidant-laden foods should be consumed in large quantities by people who are healthy to help them avoid developing the disease. http://www.webmd.com/cancer/features/cancer-cure-closer http://www.cancertutor.com/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cancer_research http://www.cancercouncil.com.au/70762/research/research-news/latest-news/a-single-cure-for-cancer-freddy-sitas/ http://www.foxnews.com/health/2015/01/29/8-year-old-suggests-possible-cure-for-cancer/ http://curekidscancer.com/

Mechanical ventilator used during a breast surgery
A ventilator is a machine that supports the breathing of a patient undergoing surgery. It is also known as a mechanical ventilator or respirator or a breathing machine. Ventilators are mainly used to send oxygen into the lungs, remove excess carbon dioxide from the body, help people breathe easier and for those people unable to breathe on their own. A ventilator often is used for short periods, such as during surgery when you're under general anesthesia. The medicines used to induce anesthesia can disrupt normal breathing. A ventilator helps make sure that you continue breathing during surgery. A ventilator also may be used during treatment for a serious lung disease or other condition that affects normal breathing. However, depending on the type of surgery you have, you could stay on a ventilator for a few hours to several days after your surgery. Most people who have anesthesia during surgery only need a ventilator for a short time, though. In most cases, the ventilator is used to help a person breathe, while other problems or illnesses are corrected. For instance, burns to the mouth and throat may cause swelling severe enough to close off the breathing airways. A breathing tube keeps the airway open. After surgery, sometimes people need help breathing until their anesthetic wears off. Lung diseases, infections, severe injury or illness can increase the workload of breathing. The ventilator takes this work away, leaving the person more energy for healing. A ventilator also may be used during treatment for a serious lung disease or other condition that affects normal breathing. Some people may need to use ventilators long term or for the rest of their lives. In these cases, the machines can be used outside of the hospital—in long-term care facilities or at home. A ventilator doesn't treat a disease or condition. It's used only for life support. A breast cyst is a fluid-filled sac within the breast. One breast can have one or more breast cysts. They're often described as round or oval lumps with distinct edges. In texture, a breast cyst usually feels like a soft grape or a water-filled balloon, but sometimes a breast cyst feels firm. Breast cysts can be painful and may be worrisome but are generally benign. They are most common in pre-menopausal women in their 30s or 40s. They usually disappear after menopause, but may persist or reappear when using hormone therapy. Breast cysts can be part of fibrocystic disease. The pain and swelling is usually worse in the second half of the menstrual cycle or during pregnancy. Fibroadenomas of the breast, are lumps composed of fibrous and glandular tissue. Because breast cancer can also appear as a lump, doctors may recommend a tissue sample (biopsy) to rule out cancer in older patients. Unlike typical lumps from breast cancer, fibroadenomas are easy to move, with clearly defined edges.Fibroadenomas are sometimes called breast mice or a breast mouse owing to their high mobility in the breasts. Breast fibroadenomas can be diagnosed early through clinical examination, ultrasound or mammography, and often a needle biopsy sample of the lump and treated by surgical excision. They are removed with a small margin of normal breast tissue if the preoperative clinical investigations are suggestive of the diagnosis. A small amount of normal tissue must be removed in case the lesion turns out to be a phyllodes tumour on microscopic examination. Treating breast cysts is usually not necessary unless they are painful or cause discomfort. In most cases, the discomfort they cause may be alleviated by draining the fluid from the cyst. The cysts form as a result of the growth of the milk glands and their size may range from smaller than a pea to larger than a ping pong ball. Small cysts cannot be felt during a physical examination, and some large cysts feel like lumps. However, most cysts, regardless of their size cannot be identified during physical exams.

Understanding Exacerbation Medical Coding
Understanding Exacerbation Medical Coding http://www.cco.us/medical-terminology-and-anatomy-for-medical-coders-course-yt Q: I need help in understanding how to code the following: These are three diagnoses – the way I took this question. Three diagnoses on one encounter, one patient. The three are: 1. Acute exacerbation of COPD or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. 2. Acute bacterial exacerbation of chronic bronchitis. 3. Asthma with exacerbation. Our coder is stating: “I would code this as 493.22 only” which is chronic obstructive asthma with acute exacerbation. She or he, the coder is stating that, “The coworkers would code this with 491.22 and 493.22. I don’t understand how you can get acute bronchitis out of exacerbation of chronic bronchitis. Any help would be greatly appreciated.” A: This can be very confusing – the acute and the chronic – especially when you got a disease process that is so similar. What I did was I took the two codes and just put them up here. So, 493.22 states, “Chronic obstructive asthma; with (acute) exacerbation.” That’s a specific code. You can have chronic obstructive asthma without the acute exacerbation. Then, we have 491.22, “Obstructive chronic bronchitis; with acute bronchitis. The point that I think that will help the coder that is asking this, is understanding a little bit about the disease process. First of all, you might wonder, “Well, how come we’re not coding COPD, because that was the first thing listed?” Actually, when you have these other two diagnoses, if you note down where… this is what you get when you look up – COPD 496. Down here on the bottom it states, “Note: This code is not to be used with any code from categories 491-493.” And both of those other codes are in that range, so we’re not going to code the COPD. We are going to code just for the asthma and the bronchitis. Read more here: http://www.cco.us/understanding-exacerbation-medical-coding-video/

The Aliki Initiative — Innovative Patient Care
Personalized medicine. Individualized medicine. It's the notion that diagnostic and treatment decisions must be tailored to a person's unique biological make-up, potentially even to the person's genetic code. For the past five years, the Aliki Initiative at Johns Hopkins has been teaching young doctors that it also involves tailoring decisions to a person's individual life circumstances. Learn from doctors and patients why knowing a patient as a person is as important to great medical care as knowing any other aspect of the patient as an individual.

EBUS and CT-guided biopsy in repeat biopsies of patients with progressive lung cancer
Neal Navani, MA, MBBS, MRCP, MSc, PhD, University College London, London, UK, discusses the differences in the application of endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) and CT-guided biopsies at diagnosis versus repeat biopsy after disease progression (second-line). Both techniques are well established for diagnosing lung cancer and have traditionally been used for initial diagnosis. However, there is an increasing need to perform a repeat biopsy of tumours that are progressing after first-line treatment. This can provide insights into why the tumour has become resistant to the treatment and inform tailored second-line treatment decisions. Dr Navani explains differences in the application of these techniques between the first-line and second-line settings, highlighting that patient consent to a repeat biopsy is critical. He also discusses reasons behind the reduced sensitivity of the techniques in the second-line setting and how these need to be reflected when discussing options with patients. Recorded at the 2017 meeting of the British Thoracic Oncology Group (BTOG) in Dublin, Ireland.

In part six of this new series on cancer, Krisstina speaks with Robert Rabbin, a seasoned public speaker, author, life-long mediation practitioner and cancer survivor. In December of 2011 while in Australia, Robert began experiencing severe back pain that eventually led him to the hospital on Christmas Eve. After several tests were performed, the doctor’s gave him a grave diagnosis – they told him he had stage 4 lung cancer and gave him six to nine months to live. Seeking refuge from all the well intentioned advice and support he was receiving, he looked inward and turned within to find the silence he desperately needed and to look for the answers of how he was going to respond to his diagnosis. ► ABOUT THE WEALTHY WELLTHY™ LIFE Welcome to the Wealthy Wellthy™ Life.
