These codes are not intended to be mandatory, but are to be used as a starting point for the identification of epiglottitis in routine Electronic Health Record (EHR). Each study may differ in the sensitivity and specificity of the coding required.
According to the National Health Service (NHS), Epiglottitis is defined as an inflammation and swelling of the epiglottis. It is often caused by an infection, but can also sometimes happen as a result of a throat injury.
