Cadiac Caths and EP studies


Best answers
I'm new to pediatric cardiology and am stressing out!! I'm not sure how to code the cardiac caths and EP studies!?!?! :confused: I know most of the children have congential issues but I'm just not sure of modifiers and such. As for the EP studies...I'm totally lost. I'd like to say there is someone on the office that could help but there's not. Could someone please give me some type of background on cardiac caths and modifiers and whatever you know in regards to EP studies?? Oh and it's all inpatient hospital setting...

Thanks!! :(
