Would love your comments also regarding your thought processes and the evidence behind your decisions. We can learn from each other! With the COVID-19 pandemic, PED volumes are low nationwide. A recent SAEM COVID-19 national grand rounds webinar suggested that PED's, to help out inundated adult ED's, might see adult patients up to age 35 years. I tried to pick the most common ages, but feel free to comment with specifics! [poll id="47"]

Tips and Tricks

Having trouble finding the ICD-10 code in your electronic medical record? Do a Google search "ICD 10" + whatever diagnosis you're looking for. For example, searching "ICD 10 parent concern" turns up "Z 71.1 Person with feared complaint in whom no diagnosis is made." Here's another useful one "R 68.11 Excessive crying of infant (baby)." Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving, and no one feels the need to use "Z 63.1 Problems in relationships with in-laws."
