I am needing some help from my fellow coders. My physician performed an "Epinephrine Challenge Test". The patient is infussed with a dose of epinephrine or procainamide, and is monitored by EKG as the patient's heart is stressed. This is performed in the out-patient hospital setting.

Look at 93015-93018 "Cardiovascular stress test.... and/or pharmacological stress" and see if this is what you're looking for.
