As a traveling hemodialysis nurse, I am often in need of ICD9 codes. Frequently, I'm the only nurse in the facilities I work and there's no one to ask where things are.
Does anyone know where I can get a list of ICD9 codes for the following?
Clotted access, permcath
Use of Activase
Permcath exit site infection
Anemia mgmt w/ Epo
Bone mgmt w/ Zemplar & Hectorol
Anemia mgmt w/ Ferrlecit & Venofer
Anticoagulation w/ Heparin
I've searched general ICD 9 code sites and can't find what I need.
Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated!

585.6 is the code for ESRD stage V, you can use it as well for scheduling procedures such as fistulograms, thrombectomies, that are specific for dialysis pts.
Blood cultures can also be 136.9 for unspecified infection
The ICD-9 codes listed by dialec are the ones I use as well
