ICD-10 Coding Muscular System

2 Continuing Education Units (CEU) - Our body has over 640 skeletal muscles that make up the bulk of our body and more than half of its weight. There are three types of muscles in our bodies: involuntary (smooth), cardiac, and skeletal (striated). While there are distinctions among the different types of muscles, they all have the ability to contract, relax, be excited by a stimulus, and return to their original size and shape.

ICD-10 Coding Nervous System

2 Continuing Education Units (CEU) - The nervous system consists of the brain, spinal cord, and all of the nerves inside and outside those structures. It receives sensory information from all the parts of your body, processes that information, and stimulates muscles and glands to move or secrete hormones. In addition, it allows people to engage in cognitive tasks, such as retrieving memories, learning new information, and communicating with other people.

ICD-10 Coding Genitourinary System

2 Continuing Education Units (CEU) - The genitourinary system includes organs of the reproductive and urinary systems. They are included together due to their proximity and because they share common pathways. One important distinction between coding in the ICD-10-CM and ICD-9-CM is that the ICD-10-CM requires more specificity in terms of the site of injury/diagnosis.

ICD-10 Coding Skeletal System

3 Continuing Education Units (CEU) - The skeletal system has many important functions. Our bones are strong enough to bear weight, yet light enough to allow for flexible movement. In addition, many of our bones provide protection for our internal organs. For example, our skull protects our brain, and our rib cage protects our heart, kidneys, and other organs. Our bones also store materials our body needs, such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and bone marrow.

Joints

2 Continuing Education Units (CEU) - The human body has three types of joints: fibrous, cartilaginous, and synovial. Fibrous joints are sometimes called fixed joints. The joints connecting the bones that make up the skull are examples of fibrous joints. Cartilaginous joints are only slightly moveable. The synovial joints of our body allow for the largest range of motion. There are 6 types of synovial joints.
