what is mild systemic disease

Report as

A systemic disease is one that affects the body as a whole (the whole system) or one that affects most or all of the organs in a particular system (digestive system, respiratory system, etc). Mild systemic disease is a term to indicate some disease that is affecting a body system but is well controlled or not causing any functional limitations. http://my.clevelandclinic.org/services/anesthesia/hic_asa_physical_classification_system.aspx

There is no such thing as a mild systemic disease because when a disease is considered to be systemic it means it affects a majority of organs in our body. One example of a systemic disease is SLE or systemic lupus erythematosus.

The question is referring to CPT coding in which there is a classification of mild systemic disease. That is referred to as: No functional limitations; has a well-controlled disease of one body system; controlled hypertension or diabetes without systemic effects, cigarette smoking without chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); mild obesity, pregnancy
