An ultrasound showed an intrauterine fetal death of triplet 2, but the other two were progressing normally. The contractions stopped for about 24 hours and then restarted. It was noted by the physician that the continued contractions were due to fetus 2. The patient was given magnesium sulfate for tocolysis which was unsuccessful.

The patient experienced no postpartum complications. Assign the diagnoses codes.

  2. Great coding examples, however, there is an error on the first question. O13.2 is not Gestational Diabetes. Correct code but incorrect description.

  3. I really appreciated your post, This would really provide the great information. Thanks for the post.
