FAEs are counted against the year or month in which the admission episode finishes. Admissions do not represent the number of patients, as a person may have more than one admission within the period.</p><p> </p><p><sup>2</sup>The primary diagnosis is the first of up to 20 diagnosis fields in the HES data set and provides the main reason why the patient was admitted to hospital.</p><p> </p><p><sup>3</sup>ICD-10 codes used to define malnutrition are:</p><p>E40 Kwashiorkor</p><p>E41 Nutritional marasmus</p><p>E42 Marasmic kwashiorkor</p><p>E43 Unspecified severe protein-energy malnutrition</p><p>E44 Protein-energy malnutrition of moderate and mild degree</p><p>E45 Retarded development following protein-energy malnutrition</p><p>E46 Unspecified protein-energy malnutrition</p><p>O25 Malnutrition in pregnancy</p><p> </p><p><sup>4</sup>HES figures are available from 1989-90 onwards. Changes to the figures over time need to be interpreted in the context of improvements in data quality and coverage (particularly in earlier years), improvements in coverage of independent sector activity (particularly from 2006-07) and changes in NHS practice. For example, apparent reductions in activity may be due to a number of procedures which may now be undertaken in outpatient settings and so no longer include in admitted patient HES data. Conversely, apparent increases in activity may be due to improved recording of diagnosis or procedure information.</p>
