New to interventional pulmonary- Op note states

A thorough airway exam was performed after passage of the bronchoscope. The larynx and vocal cords were anatomically normal. No significant erythema of the vocal folds. The trachea was anatomically normal. The right sided airway was anatomically normal without endobronchial lesions. No secretions. The left sided airway was anatomically normal without endobronchial lesions. No secretions.

Dynamic maneuvers performed with both inspiration and expiration.
Proximal trachea: no malacia. No significant malacia appreciated from proximal, mid, distal trachea; proximal right mainstem: mild; distal right mainstem/BI: moderate; proximal left mainstem: none; distal left mainstem: mild.


Is there a specific code for dynamic maneuvers?
