ICD 10 codes for observation stay: Z04 vs Z43

Hi, I am having trouble with first-listed diagnosis for patient whose trach fell out. Trach was not replaced. Final diagnosis: respiratory monitoring s/p trach dislodgement. (It's not a complication).

I am thinking this is observation Z04 series of codes or Z43 attention to series. Am leaning toward the Z43 series. Would appreciate another opinion. Thanks,
