Added By Infochimps

External cause codes are recorded in the 13 secondary diagnosis fields (seven prior to 2002-03), which make it possible to record additional information in the episode. The codes reflect the cause of a patient’s attendance in hospital and are recorded using the V01 to Y98 ICD-10 codes. The External cause tables display these codes at the 3-character level along with descriptions.
