tourniquet Project 

Procedure Codes

As a result of ongoing efforts to observe tourniquet use in Texas, it was determined there needed to be a uniform manner of observing tourniquet application. There are 16 ICD-10 PCS Codes that were identified. ICD-10 Procedure Coding System is a method that is used across the globe as a universal convention of identifying procedures. The image seen here contains each of those codes along with their description. You can see from the descriptions that each code is very precise!

Because coding is already performed at all hospitals, this should be easy to implement to really get a good look at tourniquet application without having to additional work.

This project continues to be a work in progress. Results and progress will be published here as it becomes available.

The Data Workgroup invites anyone with an interest to advance our mission to attend our next meeting. Please contact the workgroup chair for an invitation.
