International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems – ICD.

Most likely, a great amount of us already has recognized some strange alphanumeric codes on a hospital report. In most cases they appear just before the name of the illness one was diagnosed to have.  However, most people never question what they are for and where they come from.

Historically, these numbers were set up to make international statistics of the illnesses on the basis of which people died! This goes back to the 19th century.

Today, the ICD- code is the most accepted international classification system of illnesses and symptoms in general. The World Health Organisation (WHO) is in charge to frequently update the system.

Currently, we are dealing with the 10th version, but ICD-11 is on its way and will become effective with the beginning of 2022. Although there are some local modifications in several countries, the essence of the alphanumerical code is equally used.

To give you an example: someone who was treated for lower back pain will find the “M54.5” on his report and if you are suffering from high blood pressure “I10.9” should be written on yours.

If you already suffered from COVID 19 disease the ICD code for this is U07.1”.
There might be some extending digits e.g. defining the side.

Next to using it for statistic evaluation of the prevalence of illnesses, ICD codes can also be used to regulate the financial side of the health system as for a certain ICD code there is a certain payment that every hospital gets.

Access critical medical information of the athletes

For the Team Management, team leaders, tour guides and supporting parents, it is crucial to be able to access critical medical information of the athletes if something should happen.

It is the Team Management that most often must provide first-line assistance or contact health personnel if a situation arises. Knowing whether an athlete is healthy, on medication or has allergies reduces the time until proper treatment is given.

Muskuloskeletala skador

För att undvika svullnad, smärta och förlängd återhämtningsperiod är det av yttersta vikt att vidta korrekta åtgärder omedelbart efter att en skada inträffat. Detta gäller oavsett om du har vridit fotleden eller om foten har träffats av ett föremål. Det spelar ingen roll om i det i slutänden visar sig handla om en kontusion (blödning/blåmärke), muskelbristning, stukning eller t.o.m. en fraktur eller urledvridning – tillvägagångssättet bör vara detsamma oavsett bakomliggande orsak.
