I have a question about ICD codes that can indicate death (but not necessarily).
If patient has a record with a code from the list below (there are more of similar codes, these are just examples), and after such diagnosis he has no more records in database, can we consider him dead?
E950 Suicide and self-inflicted poisoning by solid or liquid substances
E953 Suicide and self-inflicted injury by hanging strangulation and suffocation
E910 Accidental drowning and submersion
E913 Accidental mechanical suffocation
I46.9 Cardiac arrest, unspecified
Thank you in advance.
