ICD-10 Muscular System

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 Nervous System

The nervous system consists of the brain, spinal cord, and all of the nerves inside and outside those structures.  The nervous system 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.  (2 CEUs)

ICD-10 Skeletal System

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.  Our bones also store materials our body needs, such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and bone marrow.  This tutorial reviews these functions, and the ICD-10 coding of the skeletal system.

ICD-10: Circulatory System

The circulatory system is made up of the heart and the blood vessels that carry the blood throughout our bodies. The heart is the hard-working muscle whose function is to pump the blood through the vessels.  There are three basic types of blood vessels: arteries, veins, and capillaries.  You will learn more about each of these later in the lesson.
