Clinical Information
  • A condition characterized by the site of origin of impulses, controlling the heart rate, changing within the atria, including the sinus node. Variations within p waves and pr intervals occur and an irregular rate of impulse formation is observed.

  • A derangement in the normal functioning of the sinoatrial node. Typically, sa node dysfunction is manifest as sinoatrial exit block or sinus arrest, but may present as an absolute or relative bradycardia in the presence of a stressor. It may be associated with bradycardia-tachycardia syndrome

ICD-9-CM codes are used in medical billing and coding to describe diseases, injuries, symptoms and conditions. ICD-9-CM 427.89 is one of thousands of ICD-9-CM codes used in healthcare. Although ICD-9-CM and CPT codes are largely numeric, they differ in that CPT codes describe medical procedures and services. Can't find a code?
