Talk:List of ICD-9 codes
|WikiProject Medicine||(Rated List-class, Mid-importance)|
NOS=not otherwise specified--a generic catchall also you will see NEC=not elsewhere classified
somesections will have NEC followed by NOS just incase you didn' find the NEC ambiguous enough!
Published is not necessarily public domain
http://www.code-xpert.com/ is cited as evidence that these codes are in the public domain; but it really only proves that the codes are published, not that they are in the public domain. ICD cites WHO | International Classification of Diseases (ICD), which says:
ICD-10 classification in various formats such as ClaML and other related materials can be downloaded from our download area. You will need to register and accept the license before downloading.
What does NOS mean? By the way, it is now linked to the NOS disambiguation page (links should not be linked disambiguation pages), and I find nothing good in it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cate (talk • contribs) 05:50, 9 August 2005 (UTC)
