LOC with Head Bleed

If a patient comes into the ED with a Closed Subdural 3mm and Subarachnoid, with 30 minutes of LOC in the field, do I only code the SAH w/ LOC 140694.2  and give it the ICD9 code of 852.02?  And since there is no AIS code for Subdural with LOC I would give it a code of 140651.3 with an ICD9 code of 852.20?  This scenario is only for ICD9 coding not ICD10.  Let me know what you think.
