ICD-10-AM: the international statistical classification of diseases and related health problems, 10th revision, Australian modification: tabular list of diseases

Book


Abstract


  • A classification of diseases may be defined as a system of categories to which morbid entities are assigned

    according to established criteria. There are many possible axes of classification and the one selected will

    depend upon the use to be made of the statistics to be compiled. A statistical classification of diseases must

    encompass the entire range of morbid conditions within a manageable number of categories.

    The Tenth Revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems

    is the latest in a series that was formalised in 1893 as the Bertillon Classification or International List of

    Causes of Death. A complete review of the historical background to the classification is given in Volume

    2 ofiCD-10. While the title has been amended to make clearer the content and purpose and to reflect

    the progressive extension of the scope of the classification beyond diseases and injuries, the familiar

    abbreviation 'ICD' has been retained. In the updated classification, conditions have been grouped in a way

    that was felt to be most suitable for general epidemiological purposes and the evaluation of health care.
