Extracorporeal membrane carbon dioxide removal (IPG428)
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has issued full guidance to the NHS in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland on Extracorporeal membrane carbon dioxide removal.
This document replaces previous guidance on Arterio–venous extracorporeal membrane carbondioxide removal (interventional procedure guidance IPG250).
Extracorporeal membrane carbon dioxide removal is used to treat respiratory failure (when the lungs do not work effectively) in critically ill patients. The aim is to remove excess carbon dioxide from the blood. The patient will still need to receive oxygen by mechanical ventilation. Blood is drawn from the circulation and passed through a synthetic membrane, where carbon dioxide is removed, before it is returned to the circulation.

The NHS Classifications Service of NHS Connecting for Health is the central definitive source for clinical coding guidance and determines the coding standards associated with the classifications (OPCS-4 and ICD-10) to be used across the NHS. The NHS Classifications Service and NICE work collaboratively to ensure the most appropriate classification codes are provided. www.connectingforhealth.co.uk/clinicalcoding
