ICD-10 Code I00-I99 is designated for circulatory system diseases, encompassing a comprehensive array of conditions related to the cardiovascular system. Within this range, distinct categories address specific aspects of circulatory health. Each category contains detailed codes for various cardiovascular conditions, providing a structured and specific framework for healthcare professionals to communicate diagnoses and contribute to a comprehensive understanding of circulatory system health.
ICD-10-CM Code I00-I02: Acute Rheumatic Fever
Acute rheumatic fever is an inflammatory condition that can follow untreated or inadequately treated streptococcal throat infections.

ICD-10-CM Code I05-I09: Chronic Rheumatic Heart Diseases
Chronic rheumatic heart diseases typically arise from inflammatory processes triggered by untreated or inadequately treated streptococcal infections. This category includes several specific codes, each addressing different aspects of the condition.
ICD-10-CM Code I10-I15: Hypertensive Diseases
ICD-10-CM Code range I10-I15 is dedicated to hypertensive diseases, providing a systematic classification for conditions related to high blood pressure. This category encompasses a spectrum of hypertensive disorders.
ICD-10-CM Code I20-I25: Ischemic Heart Diseases
Range I20-I25 encompasses a comprehensive classification system for ischemic heart diseases, covering a spectrum of conditions resulting from reduced blood flow to the heart muscle.
ICD-10-CM Code I26-I28: Pulmonary Heart Disease and Diseases of Pulmonary Circulation
Pulmonary heart disease, also known as cor pulmonale, refers to a condition where the right side of the heart becomes enlarged and weakened due to a chronic lung disorder or pulmonary hypertension.
ICD-10-CM Code I30-I52: Other Forms of Heart Disease
Other forms of heart disease are a broad category that encompasses a variety of cardiovascular conditions beyond those specifically covered in other, more narrowly defined code ranges within ICD code I30-150. These conditions involve diverse aspects of the heart and its surrounding structures, ranging from inflammatory conditions of the pericardium and endocardium to disorders of the heart valves, myocardium (heart muscle), and the electrical conduction system.
ICD-10-CM Code I60-I69: Cerebrovascular Diseases
Cerebrovascular diseases refer to a group of medical conditions that affect the blood vessels and blood supply to the brain. These diseases often involve abnormalities in the arteries supplying blood to the brain, leading to complications such as reduced blood flow, clot formation, or vessel rupture.
ICD-10-CM Code I70-I79: Diseases of Arteries, Arterioles, and Capillaries
This category focuses on disorders related to arteries (large blood vessels that carry oxygenated blood away from the heart), arterioles (smaller arteries), and capillaries (the smallest blood vessels where oxygen and nutrients exchange with tissues).
ICD-10-CM Code I80-I89: Diseases of Veins, Lymphatic Vessels, and Lymph Nodes, Unclassified
Conditions within this category can involve a range of issues affecting the vascular and lymphatic systems, including inflammation, thrombosis (clot formation), obstruction, and other structural or functional abnormalities.
The meticulous classification within this ICD-10 code I00-I99 enables healthcare professionals to navigate and understand the diversity of circulatory disorders, ranging from acute events like rheumatic fever to chronic conditions. As medical knowledge advances, the continued refinement and utilization of these codes will undoubtedly contribute to improved patient outcomes and a deeper comprehension of the intricate workings of the human cardiovascular system.
