Cannula for reading co2 expelled

Pauline Posted Fri 20th of January, 2012 16:07:15 PM

Our surgery centers are going to start using a nasal cannula for oxygen, it reads the amount of co2 expelled. What cpt code is appropriate for this? I'm not finding one that fits.

I believe you could use HCPCS LEVEL II Supplies for Oxygen and Related Respiratory Equipment E0424 (Rental) or E0425 (Purchase). A4615 is not appropriate in this scenario.
