Guest post: Documentation, billing, and coding bronchopulmonary dysplasia

by Shabih Manzar, MD

Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a disease that affects infants who were born prematurely. The incidence of the condition is inversely proportional to the gestation age of the infant. It is a multifactorial disease that remains poorly understood and inadequately defined. (For more information, see this article on the topic from the June 2018 edition of The Journal of Pediatrics.)
