OXYGEN THRU NASAL CANAL

Shade Posted Mon 30th of June, 2014 13:35:07 PM

How do i code for oxygen given to pt thru nasal canal and pt was transported thru ems to ER. with the oxygen.

CPT does not contain separate oxygen administration codes-it bundles the oxygen into the E/M or Emergency department E/M service you report for the day. You should report the appropriate Emergency department E/M visit code that describes the service the provider performs and documents.

Thanks !!
