Exposure to Forces of Nature (Weather) Diagnosis Codes - Excluding Heat/Sunlight Exposure - Kansas Department of Health and Environment

This syndrome was created to capture records where the "exposure to forces of nature" diagnosis codes are sent, excluding Heat/Sunlight codes. The original syndrome captured all weather-related events that are explicitly stated and diagnosed, but the majority of these cases were sunburns and heat stroke. The original syndrome is also uploaded, but this syndrome will serve similar purposes as the original while excluding Heat/Sunlight cases when these are not of interest.
