It is important to recognize that ICD diagnosis codes and AIS severity codes were developed for two very different purposes. ICD diagnosis codes were developed to classify and code diagnoses and symptoms. AIS is a scoring system used to identify the severity of a single injury based on anatomical derangement. AIS codes are generally much more
ICD external cause codes have no effect on AIS and are not a consideration in the mapping.
Yes, the map includes translation for both ICD-9 (800 – 959.9) and ICD-10 (S00-T88.9) codes to AIS severity using AIS08. The map focuses only on ICD traumatic injury codes and includes the clinical modifications while also providing a translation for 3 and 4-digit codes.

AIS derived scores are generated through automated translation of the ICD diagnoses using a computer software package that links to the ICDMap tables. Though an ICDMAP conversion program is not a perfect tool for providing precise information on injury severity, it allows scoring of injury when the number of cases makes it impractical to code
