International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems. 10th Revision

9780119897159: International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems. 10th Revision

The International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (commonly known by the abbreviation ICD) describes every disease (or group of related diseases) and gives it a unique code. It was devised to standardize the collection and analysis of mortality statistics and originally began in 1893 as the Bertillon Classification. The current, tenth, revision came into force in 1994. This fully updated second edition is the result of the work of an international review panel that has collated all of the adjustments proposed by institutions from around the world. Improvements have been made to the rules and guidelines for mortality coding, the index has been expanded and new diseases have been included.
