Guide for use:Help on this term

External cause codes V00 to Y34 must be accompanied by an activity code U50-U73. 

As per classification instructions, when multiple activity codes apply to a single injury event the code appearing highest in the ICD-10-AM Tabular List is used. 

For example, an injury sustained during sport that is undertaken during school or as part of paid work should be assigned the activity code for sport (U50–U71).
