The list of codes included in drug-induced causes was expanded in the 2003 data year to be more comprehensive. Specifically, the following 37 ICD10 codes were added to the list of drug-induced codes: D52.1, D59.0, D59.2, D61.1, D64.2, E06.4, E16.0, E23.1, E24.2 , E27.3,E66.1, G21.1, G24.0, G25.1, G25.4, G25.6, G44.4, G62.0, G72.0, I95.2, J70.2, J70.3, J70.4, L10.5, L27.0, L27.1, M10.2, M32.0, M80.4, M81.4, M83.5, M87.1, R78.1, R78.2, R78.3, R78.4, and R78.5.
The complete list of causes of death attributable to drug-induced mortality now includes ICD10 codes:
D52.1, Drug-induced folate deficiency anemia;
Selected codes from the ICD10 title Mental and behavioral disorders due to psychoactive substance use, specifically:
F11.0 F11.5, F11.7 F11.9,
F12.0 F12.5, F12.7 F12.9,
F13.0 F13.5, F13.7 F13.9,
F14.0 F14.5, F14.7 F14.9, F15.0 F15.5, F15.7 F15.9,
F16.0 F16.5, F16.7 F16.9,
F17.0, F17.3 F17.5, F17.7 F17.9, F18.0 F18.5, F18.7 F18.9,
F19.0 F19.5, F19.7 F19.9;
G21.1, Other drug-induced secondary parkinsonism;
R78.1, Finding of opiate drug in blood;
X40 X44, Accidental poisoning by and exposure to drugs, medicaments, and biological substances;
X60 X64, Intentional self-poisoning (suicide) by and exposure to drugs, medicaments, and biological substances;
X85, Assault (homicide) by drugs, medicaments,and biological substances;
Y10 Y14, Poisoning by and exposure to drugs, medicaments and biological substances,undetermined intent.
Drug-induced causes exclude accidents, homicides, and other causes indirectly related to drug use. Also excluded are newborn deaths associated with mothers drug use. Note: 41 such deaths were recorded in 2003 -- ICD-10 code P04.4
Numbers of deaths and death rates based on the newly modified list of causes may differ slightly from those previously published. For example, for 2002, the addition of the 37 codes increased the total number of deaths from drug-induced causes from 26,018 to 26,040 (an increase of 22); the total crude and age-adjusted death rates were unaffected.
